The King of the Pict has entered into an agreement with Cathbad, Overlord of the Western Region to wed his daughter Anin. Blyth, Anin's mother, has given her husband four fine sons and King Talon hopes Anin will do the same for him. Unfortunately, Anin's mother wants no part of the agreement. She intends for her daughter to pick a husband of her own choosing as the women of her tribe do. She sends Anin away and no amount of threats or persuasion will make Blyth confess her daughter's whereabouts and so King Talon sends the one man he knows who can force the woman to speak and to bring Anin to him-his executioner. Paine is feared by all, and rightfully so. He has the power to bring great suffering and with one swing of his double-sided axe a swift death. He has been sent to collect the future Queen and deliver her to King Talon. An easy mission and one he wants to see finished quickly, but from the moment he meets Anin he knows that will prove a challenge.Anin has no choice but to go with the executioner and wed the High King, though she would prefer not to, especially after she meets the executioner. He brings things alive in her that she has been forced to keep hidden and as her secrets begin to surface so do her feelings for the executioner.The couple faces insurmountable challenges on their journey to Pictland and even more when they finally stand before the King.

On August 18, 1648, with no relief from the siege in sight, the royalist garrison holding Colchester Castle surrendered and Oliver Cromwell's army firmly ended the rule of Charles I of England. To send a clear message to the fallen monarch, the rebels executed four of the senior officers captured at the castle. Yet still the king refused to accept he had lost the war. As France and other allies mobilized in support of Charles, a tribunal was hastily gathered and a death sentence was passed. On January 30, 1649, the King of England was executed. This is the account of the fifty-nine regicides, the men who signed Charles I's death warrant. Recounting a little-known corner of British history, Charles Spencer explores what happened when the Restoration arrived. From George Downing, the chief plotter, to Richard Ingoldsby, who claimed he was forced to sign his name by his cousin Oliver Cromwell, and from those who returned to the monarchist cause and betrayed their fellow regicides to those that fled the country in an attempt to escape their punishment, Spencer examines the long-lasting, far-reaching consequences not only for those who signed the warrant, but also for those who were present at the trial, and for England itself. A powerful tale of revenge from the dark heart of England's past, and a unique contribution to seventeenth-century history, Killers of the King tells the incredible story of the men who dared to assassinate a monarch.

Jon, the orphaned son of the Royal Executioner, gets caught up in the intrigue that surrounds the alleged appearance of a dragon in the King’s hunting preserve. As he gets swept up in the conspiracy of the dragon’s existence, he gains a knighthood that he has not earned, is quested to slay the dragon that does not exist, and struggles with the practical challenges of life and faith as he seeks to fulfill his quest. Written in the classical tradition, this book is a coming of age story in the tradition of Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island” or “Kidnapped.” The book encourages readers to think about the nature of life and faith without letting the lessons interfere with a compelling tale that urges the reader on to the next chapter.

John has done a masterful job of incorporating some of the most basic tenants of Christianity as well as answering some of the most difficult questions of life throughout this book. As you read this book your emotions will run the gamut and leave you confident in your faith, wanting more." Robert S. Irvine, Pastor of Pinnacle Community Church, Phoenix AZ
