To escape a lifetime of poverty, mercenary Sir Benedict Palmer agrees to one final, lucrative job: help King Henry II's knights seize the traitor Archbishop Thomas Becket at Canterbury Cathedral. But what begins as a clandestine arrest ends in cold-blooded murder. And when Fitzurse, the knights' ringleader, kidnaps Theodosia, a beautiful young nun who witnessed the crime, Palmer can sit silently by no longer. For not only is Theodosia's virtue at stake, so too is the secret she unknowingly carries—a secret he knows Fitzurse will torture out of her. Now Palmer and Theodosia are on the run, strangers from different worlds forced to rely only on each other as they race to uncover the hidden motive behind Becket's grisly murder—and the shocking truth that could destroy a kingdom.

John is a prince without prospect of a crown. As the youngest son of Henry II, he has long borne the hated nickname 'Lackland.' When warring tribes and an ambitious Anglo-Norman lord threaten Henry's reign in Ireland, John believes his time has finally come. Henry is dispatching him there with a mighty force to impose order. Yet it is a thwarted young man who arrives on the troubled isle. John has not been granted its kingship--he is merely the Lord of Ireland, destined never to escape his father's shadow. Unknown to John, Henry has also sent his right-hand man, Sir Benedict Palmer, to root out the traitors he fears are working to steal the land from him. But Palmer is horrified when John disregards Henry's orders and embarks on a campaign of bloodshed that could destroy the kingdom. Now Palmer has to battle the increasingly powerful Lord of Ireland. Power, in John's hands, is a murderous force--and he is only just beginning to wield it.

England, 1176. King Henry II has imprisoned his rebellious Queen for attempting to overthrow him. But with her conspirators still at large and a failed assassination attempt on his beautiful mistress, Rosamund Clifford, the King must take action to preserve his reign. Desperate, Henry turns to the only man he trusts: a man whose skills have saved him once before. Sir Benedict Palmer answers the call, mistakenly believing that his family will remain safe while he attends to his King. As Palmer races to secure the throne for the King, neither man senses the hand of a brilliant schemer, a mystery figure loyal to Henry's traitorous Queen who will stop at nothing to see the King defeated. The Blood of the Fifth Knight is an intricate medieval murder mystery and a worthy sequel to E. M. Powell's acclaimed historical thriller The Fifth Knight.

Not since Terry Goodkind unsheathed the Sword of Truth has there been such an epic tale of heroism and magic that so captures the imagination as this monumental new work by a master storyteller. In The Fifth Sorceress, Robert Newcomb conjures a time and place wrought with exquisite detail, characters vividly drawn and deeply felt, and a history rich in glory and horror, splendor and secrets. . . . “We gave them a chance once, long ago. . . . We offered to share power equally, and in peace. But they refused and chose war. With them it was all or nothing. Wizard against Sorceress. Male against female. Light against dark.” It is more than three centuries since the ravages of a devastating war nearly tore apart the kingdom of Eutracia. In its wake, those who masterminded the bloodshed—a quartet of powerful, conquest-hungry Sorceresses—were sentenced to exile, with return all but impossible and death all but inevitable. Now a land of peace and plenty, protected and guided by a council of immortal wizards, Eutracia is about to crown a new king. And as the coronation approaches, the spirit of celebration fills every heart. Except one. Prince Tristan is a reluctant monarch-to-be. Though born with the “endowed” blood that will give him the power to master magic, and destined by tradition to succeed his father as ruler, he is a rebel soul. And when he discovers the ancient, hidden caves where strange red waters flow—possessed of their own mysterious magic—it only makes him yearn all the more to escape his future of duty . . . and succumb to the stirrings of enchantment within him. But more than tradition compels Tristan to ascend the throne. The very existence of Eutracia depends upon it. For after these long centuries of peace, dreadful omens have begun to appear, heralding something too unspeakable to ponder. And if indeed the old evil has returned, hungry to wreak vengeance, Tristan’s role in an ages-old prophecy must be fulfilled—or the cost to his kingdom and his people will be beyond imagination. It will be a battle like none ever known, against an enemy whose thirst for blood and domination is depthless and unyielding. And for Tristan, it will be the ultimate challenge: facing an adversary whose greatest weapon is the person he loves most—transformed into the instrument of his annihilation . . . and the catalyst that will doom Eutracia forever to darkness.

400 years after the fall of the Third Reich, the Thousand Year Reich is reborn. After World War Three, humanity was on the verge of extinction after years of endless wars, depravity, pandemics and the insanity of leftist socialism. Out of the ashes, the Fifth Reich was born to replace the tried and true failures of humanity. Now, over a hundred years after the First War, The Reich has brought peace to the galaxy, reached to the farthest depths of space, making new alliances and new enemies. *** '... the dogfight had been brutal. The flight of four Falcon-class heavy fighters over NZ8-257 were spotted by long range probes and investigated by a pair of Valkyrie-class interceptors piloted by Lieutenant Jacen "Ace" Kruger and Lieutenant Jacob "Rash" Becker, who took them down in a heated battle. During the skirmish, the Centuari flight leader sent a distress call to the cloaked Centuari Carrier hiding in the Neutral Zone, and was answered by Commander Delaara and her wing-man in two Kestrel-class light fighters. They arrived just as Jacen blasted the last Falcon into the abyss, and engaged the Valkyries in a pitched fight. Rash's ship was severely damaged during the fight, and Jacen sent him home while he dealt with the last Centuari. Their game of chicken ended with both pilots being shot down in the upper atmosphere of the planet, crash-landing on a deserted island...' *** In this, the second book in the Fifth Reich series... it takes a special kind of crazy to be a Luftwaffe star-fighter pilot. When a direct hit from a star-ship's pulse cannon can kill you in one shot, things can get insane in a hurry. Lieutenant Jacen Kruger was that kind of crazy, which was the main reason he earned the call-sign "Ace." He seemed to have no fear of anything, as he and his fellow pilots fight, love and die in the deepest regions of space against enemies from within and outside of the Reich.
