A Knight of the Word

A Knight of the Word Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


Eight centuries ago the first Knight of the Word was commissioned to combat the demonic evil of the Void. Now that daunting legacy has passed to John Ross--along with powerful magic and the knowledge that his actions are all that stand between a living hell and humanity's future.

Then, after decades of service to the Word, an unspeakable act of violence shatters John Ross's weary faith. Haunted by guilt, he turns his back on his dread gift, settling down to build a normal life, untroubled by demons and nightmares.

But a fallen Knight makes a tempting prize for the Void, which could bend the Knight's magic to its own evil ends. And once the demons on Ross's trail track him to Seattle, neither he nor anyone close to him will be safe. His only hope is Nest Freemark, a college student who wields an extraordinary magic all her own. Five years earlier, Ross had aided Nest when the future of humanity rested upon her choice between Word and Void. Now Nest must return the favor. She must restore Ross's faith, or his life--and hers--will be forfeit . . .

Synopsis:

The sequel to the best-selling Running with the Demon continues the time-travel, good- versus-evil story of Welshman John Ross, possessor of the black runestaff, as he confronts a supernatural evil.

Synopsis:

John Ross, a modern-day Knight of the Word, becomes disillusioned with his quest and turns his back on magic to build a new life with the beautiful Stefanie Winslow, but he does not realize that a fallen Knight makes an irresistable target for the Void, and soon Ross and those he loves are being stalked by evil.
