Perils of Wrath, a proper medieval action-romance and sequel to Shadows of Valor, follows the story of the orphan boy, Roland, who is now a gallant knight and pursuing his own quest.
“Nothing frustrates a knight more than being shackled to an unruly female squire with guarded secrets and a persistent sweet tooth.”
Sir Roland’s inquiries into a pair of suspicious deaths leads him to Guildon Castle, a foreboding structure near the war-torn Scottish border. His attempt to lie low is waylaid by an assignment from the tyrannical Lord Craven to tame his disobedient stepdaughter, Audrina—by making her Roland’s squire! A female apprentice? Unheard of! The rigorous knight training pits Audri’s tenacity against Roland’s short temper, but is his squire more than what her stepfather portrays her to be? Her guarded nature suggests another side, one with veiled secrets. Can things be more convoluted? Apparently so, as Roland’s hunt for truth unearths horrors from the dungeon and enemy attention. Roland must tread carefully or he, and his squire, will end up as so many others who trespassed on furtive matters.
Perils of Wrath is slated for release MAY 2018.
A Bit About Elsie:
Elsie grew up in a small town outside of Yosemite National Park, California, U.S.A. She enjoys playing soccer and piano, reading, and writing. Years ago she spent 18 months in Italy sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ, and seeing the castles and old Roman cities enhanced her fascination for ancient and medieval culture. In college she studied zoology, botany and criminal justice, paying her way by working as a wildland firefighter for the U.S. Forest Service. After graduating college, she entered the police force as a patrol officer but later traded her badge for the most noble of all occupations: Mother. She cherishes the moments she has with her children, husband, family and friends, all the while thinking up new ideas for interesting stories and musical compositions to go with them.
