The links in this post are all now broken. I unpublished these books a long time ago, even though the series was completed, as I wasn’t happy with their quality. The domain name has since lapsed and is now owned by somebody else.
Original post follows
From the Knights and Necromancers 2 page on the Heartpunk website:
The wreckers have their shipwreck and their loot. Their next step is to get rid of the witnesses.
Grace and Cera’s only hope is to make it to safety in Galti; a small fishing village ignored and forgotten by the outside world. With them are the remaining survivors of the shipwreck: two sisters who have just seen their entire lives sink down into the ocean and the destroyed ship’s first mate.
Unfortunately for Grace, Cera, Hale, Kally, and Derek, the wreckers aren’t the only thing following them to Galti.

The adventures of Grace and Cera continue and feature, in no particular order:
- A giant two-headed eagle.
- A Necromancer.
- Warrior Sorcerers.
- Wreckers and mercenaries.
- Dainty aristocratic ladies with crossbows.
- Sociopathic talking ravens.
- A buff martial artist who fights with flaming fists.
- And an occasional moment of deserved and well-earned angst.
While Loot, kill obey is the second story starring Grace and Cera it is my hope that it should work as a standalone read. While there are plenty of details from the first story that add to this one, very few of them are necessary for enjoying the yarn.
I’ve also decided to offer the entire thing up for free on the web, at least for now. It’s an experiment. I haven’t made my mind up about it or whether to leave it up as an ongoing thing, so any and all feedback is appreciated.
If you haven’t read Knights and Necromancers 1: Days of wild obedience then that’s still available for free (or for $0.99 on Amazon.com). Help yourself to a copy on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, iBooks, Kobo, or direct from the Heartpunk website.
Or, you can try the free online web reader.
The first story has only had one review so far (and a pretty good one at that).
Days of Wild Obedience works not only as a compelling gateway into an intriguing new world, it holds its own as a standalone novella, too. That said, I’m ready to jump into the next tale in the series, and I’m already imagining the RPG and movie! Definitely recommended.
Which reminds me:
I would really, really, grateful it if those who have read Knights and Necromancers 1 wrote about what they thought of the story. It doesn’t have to be a review (although that’d be nice) and it doesn’t have to be positive (although that’d be nice as well). It’d make a huge difference if you could because working in a vacuum is worse than even getting negative feedback.
And don’t worry about hurting my feelings. There’s no way that you could come up with a more detailed critique than my mother did. (There’s a reason why me and my sister have a high tolerance for having our work criticised.)
Anyway. Download. Read. Enjoy. And then tell me what you think (if it’s not too much trouble :-))
