Boyd & Beth Morrison discuss The Lawless Land

Posted on Updated on

Somehow, I missed this in-person event when Barbara Peters, owner of The Poisoned Pen, welcomed Boyd and Beth Morrison to the bookstore. The Lawless Land is the first Templar Knight adventure. Although Boyd is a bestselling thriller writer, this is Beth’s first novel. There are signed copies available through the Web Store. https://tinyurl.com/492j99bm

Here’s the description of The Lawless Land.

First in a fast-paced Templar Knight adventure series from New York Times-bestselling author Boyd Morrison and expert art historian Beth Morrison.

Canterbury, 1351.

Ex-communicated knight Gerard Fox is a battle-hardened warrior whose ancestral home was unjustly taken from him. Now, he roams across the known world of Europe looking for work as a man-at-arms. Equipped with only his Damascus-steel sword and war bow, Fox takes out tyrannical and dishonorable men in a land still blighted by the Black Death.

In his ongoing crusade to deliver justice, Fox comes to the aid of Lady Isabel, who is fleeing from her brutal betrothed. But she hasn’t told him the whole story. Isabel is guarding a priceless holy relic. One many men would kill for.

Fox and Isabel soon find they are being chased across the continent and try to evade those who seek the relic. But as more assassins close in, Fox realizes they will stop at nothing to possess the sacred treasure that Isabel has sworn to protect.
