Price: $14.95
Book Size: 5.5'' x 8.5'' , 251 pages

A Dark and Stormy Knight sets history straight and leaves no prisoners. Succession, the power is in the family. Ride through England and Scotland, be there when God doesn’t save the Queen.

Abstract:
Split an arrow and see how James I became King.

This adventure runs the gambit from 1565 to 1569 to establish an heir to the English Crown before Elizabeth passes. Historians know the salient milestones, but aren’t sure the path taken. This tale combines elements of secret agents and medieval romance, concerning a time-traveling knight, dispatched to adjust history before it skews. Spies spy, greedy bishops lie, swords, and archer’s arrows are thrown voraciously into those battle torn days that made history. This story is best read with a pint of ale in one hand.

Customer Reviews

  An Enjoyable Read , 02/09/2007
Reviewer: Pauline Hager
John Wolf crafts an historical novel that has elements of a mystery, full of suspense and intrique, and just enough imagery for a fantasy novel that compels you to keep turning the pages. Although we all know the fate of Mary, Queen of Scots, Mr. Wolf's vivid imagination conjures up intimate details of how this event unfolded. In spite of this "dark" history, a bit of humor creeps through. How many courageous, romantic, time-travelling knights are named Widsip? Mr. Wolf's writing flows nicely as he introduces us to convoluting plots and scheming characters. Curl up with this book by a fire, with a pint of ale by your side and let your imagination soar, as Mr. Wolf did. A good read.

Riveting story of the time when Kings and Queens were all powerful. Romantic, mysterious, suspenseful and powerful. John has a wonderful story telling technique. I felt I was right there with him. This is a must read book!

  Powerful Storytelling! , 08/02/2007
Reviewer: Shirley Parker
Elements of fantasy, suspense, and medieval wrongdoing of the murderous kind kept me turning the pages. Shocking plot twists place obstacles to challenge every skill our Dark and Stormy Knight has carried from his own mysterious existence. Courage, bonds of friendship, and love triumph over the harsh reality of 16th century England and Scotland. Some twisted characters are so evil that I cheered when they met the fate they had created for themselves. Our hero could not change the sad fate of Mary, Queen of Scots, but other strong, likeable, "good people" round out this tale. We must hear more about them, especially Lord Byron and Oliver. Prequel and sequel requested for Widsip Osbearn and the Universal Time Office!
