The Warrior With Broken Wings

Sometimes the most dangerous thing in the universe is a man with nothing left to lose...

Thomas Knight is a professional photographer struggling to cope with the sudden death of his wife. Drawn into the heart of an ancient prophecy involving a legendary sword and a mysterious vintage camera, he suddenly finds himself transported to a medieval world beyond his imagination.

The last of the Verðldian kingdoms is about to be destroyed by an unspeakable evil, and if they fall, Earth will be next. With the fate of two worlds at stake, Thomas embarks upon a quest to oppose something believed to be unstoppable, guided only by a cryptic rhyme, a talking cat, a warrior princess, and her pop culture obsessed brother.

Full of surprises and quirky characters, The Warrior With Broken Wings is an epic tale that will make you believe in magic, redemption, and the power of destiny.

"I am lost for words. I sit with tears in my eyes as my mind tries to encapsulate an epic story. Wonderfully written with a set of characters that will make you smile, laugh and you guessed it - cry. You could just read this story of an unlikely hero willing to sacrifice for a greater good or you could think deeper. The author has left some deeper philosophical messages in his main character’s self reflection. A well framed storyline with a twist in the tail."

J.C. on Amazon Australia

"This was actually my second time reading this book but I still enjoyed it as much as the first time if not more. I also found that I picked up on things that I missed the first time around. It’s such a unique story and it keeps you mesmerised from the first page. Not to mention it also makes you want to go on an adventure. The writing is brilliant and I often found myself playing the one more chapter game as well as highlighting so many quotes as I read."

D.D.R. on Amazon Australia

"I completely enjoyed this story. While needing to remember it is fantasy in nature, the struggles of the main character resonated with me due a loss I experienced. I also enjoyed the fact that while I could anticipate some of the plot,, I was completely wrong on others. The mark of an engaging story."

Kindle Customer on Amazon US

"A great work of fantasy, it has everything a good fantasy novel should have: talking animals, time travel, 80’s hits being blared from speakers during the big battle. If you’re seeking a unique fantasy this book is the one for you."
