Roarke's Wisdom: The Courtship of Hollie (Book Two of the Hagenspan Chronicles)

237 pages3 hours


Hagenspan was a mythic land that once existed in our own world--nearest estimates place it somewhere in the north Atlantic, perhaps during the Middle Ages. Apparently one of the last bastions for creatures from the Old World, its shores were haunted by memories of dwarfs and fairies, kobolds and trolls, giants and dragons. The tales of Hagenspan recount the days when humankind had nearly, but not quite, forgotten those other folk, who were diminishing as it had been decreed. The Hagenspan Chronicles are a bittersweet recounting of the world that once was; sometimes whimsical, sometimes heroic, sometimes heart-rending.

The Courtship of Hollie is the second installment in the Roarke’s Wisdom section of The Hagenspan Chronicles. In it we follow Sir Cedric Roarke and his young squire Willum as they travel to the king’s city, where Roarke seeks to obtain the title for the lands he has won from the dragon. Unknown to them, they are followed behind by an assassin who seeks to claim Roarke’s inheritance, and ahead of them, the Prime Minister Herm is likewise plotting their demise.

In the center of this chaos, Roarke finds Hollie, blonde-haired and beautiful, and they begin to entertain the idea of a life together, only to be thwarted by the machinations of Prime Minister Herm, who is bound by his hatred to destroy anything in which Roarke and Hollie find their delight.
