I have been in the process of writing the sequel to “Legend of the Mystic Knights”, I have been notified that due to the recent lackluster sales, my sequel may not be handled by my publisher. As a result of this, I will be selling the novel at a reduced price. I will keep you posted when this occurs.Until I make a decision about the future of the novel, I am proceeding with telling you about the monsters and creatures which will be featured.
As with “Legend of the Mystic Knights” I have tried to incorporate creatures based on medieval legend. Each creature or monster has its unique characteristic, which includes its power and its weakness.
The following is a list of creatures which play an important part in the sequel:
WOODWOSE- The Wildman of medieval Europe. This creature is incredibly tall (over 7 feet), and has fur covering its entire body, in many instances the fur is green colored.
In mythology the woodwose may represent nature, or the animal side of man. It can be gentle and intelligent or cruel and fierce. Of course in my novel, I have to have it cruel and fierce.
REVENANT-The zombie of the medieval world. I brought this creature over from my first novel. In the original they had a limited appearance, now they are featured more and have a greater impact on the characters in the novel.
Wyvern- the characteristics of this dragon are that it has one set of legs and can fly upon its leathery wings. This dragon is used in my heraldry throughout Europe and can be seen on many family crests.
WITCH- In Medieval Europe, and my novel, there is nothing more terrifying than a witch. I want to state now, before I get angry comments that I distinguish between wise folk and witches.
Wise folk were very vital in the life of people in Europe. They were healers who used natural herbs and plants to cure people of diseases. Their knowledge rivaled or excelled past those of true educated physicians of the time.
Witches are mostly woman (because they are capable of using stronger magic) who sold their souls to Satan in exchange for the ability to practice magic. They use their magic to cause harm to those around them. It is revealed in the sequel that it is witches who are raising the dead and creating the revenants.
I hope that this gives you an idea about what will be featured in my sequel, if there is one. If you are interested in getting my novel, Legend of the Mystic Knights it is available for the kindle.
If I do not have my novel published, or I do not self-publish it, I want to thank everyone for the adventure we have taken with this blog. It has been fun, and my pleasure writing about medieval life, wrestling, and writing. Thank you.
As always thank you for visiting and if you want, please leave a comment.
