“Immortal Arthur Pendragon and his vampire Knights of the Round Table stand between mankind and the dark forces that threaten them. In MASTER OF SWORDS, we return to the Mageverse and meet the knight Gawain and witch Lark McGuin.
After a vicious attack on Lark by a vampire of the Dark Grail, the new magae is struggling with her feelings of insecurity and inadequacy. The last thing she wants is to be mentored by the love 'em and leave 'em knight, Gawain, until the last Black Grail is destroyed. Gawain isn't any more interested in being partnered with a "green" witch even as his passion for her intensifies. He's been satisfied for centuries just playing the field, his only real bond being his friendship with his dragon friend, Kel. Kel, a shapeshifter dragon trapped in Gawain's sword centuries earlier by a spell wielded by an unknown dragon, can only return to his true form if he kills Gawain and that is something he will never do.
But forces are at work that none of them can escape. A descendent of another of Arthur's knights is determined to exact his revenge on the Magi and rule mankind with all the power he gets from death magic. He'll get what he wants even if it means forging an alliance with the human hating dragon that seeks to destroy Gawain and Kel forever.
Knight has created a masterfully complex world with Mageverse, and it is showcased beautifully in the symbiotic relationship between the vampires and the Majae, and Gawain's intricate friendship with Kel. The relationship that grows between Lark and Gawain practically scorches the pages as they match wits with a vicious villain who threatens their very existence. Knight's MASTER OF SWORDS is a wonderful mix of fantasy, sizzling erotic love scenes, snappy dialogue, humor and emotional depth that doesn't let up until you turn the last page.
I can't wait to read Kel's story!”
