9780756408435: The Forever Knight: A Novel of the Bronze Knight

Lukien is the Bronze Knight, beloved by his kingdom and renowned in battle throughout his world. After betraying his king and losing his beloved, he wishes only for death, but rather than die, Lukien is given a chance for redemption: to be the protector of the Inhumans—those fragile mortals who live deep in the desert, far from the prying eyes of their world. These remarkable individuals have been granted magical powers in exchange for the hardships and handicaps life has handed them. And Lukien, now immortal himself, must be their champion. But how can one man, even an immortal warrior, protect hundreds from a world of potential enemies?

About the Author:

John Marco's debut fantasy series, Tyrants and Kings, earned him a Barnes and Noble Readers Choice Award and has since been translated into numerous languages around the world. In addition to his work as a novelist, he is also a technical communicator, an enthusiast of military history, and a student of psychology. He often spends his free time biking through the parks of his native Long Island, where he lives with his wife Deborah and his son Jack.

Review:

"No one can write epic fantasy as masterfully as John Marco—his constantly up-tempo narrative, brilliantly complex plotlines, multitudes of realistic, morally indistinct characters, and awe-inspiring settings are second to none. Genre fans will never look at epic fantasy the same way again... If this series is any indication, he will be remembered as one of the best fantasy authors of the era."—The Barnes & Noble Review
 
"Marco navigates epic fantasy with a sure hand and a keen eye for detail. Reminiscent of Michael Moorcock’s “Eternal Champion” series, Lukien’s latest adventure should appeal to most fans of epic and high fantasy."—Library Journal
 
"Revenge, redemption, and quest for purpose are all intertwined.... With each book I’ve read by John, I’ve discovered something new in his writing, a different shade of what his abilities as a storyteller are. In The Forever Knight, John’s written his shortest novel to date, but by no means does that indicate is any less powerful a novel."—SFF World
 
"Marco offers a sprawling tale of military battles, personal and political intrigue, magic, and star-crossed love set against a richly detailed land of warring kingdoms and hidden magic."—Booklist
 
"A fine, entertaining reading experience.... John Marco has again illustrated why he is one of the preeminent novelists at the gates of fantasy literature."—sffworld.com
 
"John Marco is one of the best epic fantasists of the 21st century and the audience will find immense pleasure in reading the last book in this fantastic series that is filled with action, intrigue and romance."—Midwest Book Review
 
"Mr. Marco has delivered an epic fantasy with heart and pathos.  His characters are flawed and believable, wholly sympathetic to the reader.  He paints a landscape of palace grandeur and desert isolation where magic is a reality and winning a battle is not wining the war."—RT Book Reviews
 
"A classic tale of triumph and tragedy, well written with great depth of emotion...I wouldn’t be surprised to hear Marco, and this book, mentioned alongside the icons of the fantasy genre."—News Star, Monroe, LA
 
"Marco has a way of describing things in two sentences that take some writers two paragraphs, and he has lines that simply sing and find a way to connect with readers, sticking in their heads long after those pages are turned. It is good to welcome back Lukien once more."—Book Reporter
