One man is faced with many challenges as he battles to accomplish his dreams of marrying his best friend and becoming a knight of the kingdom in Gary Khan’s “The Coward” (published by AuthorHouse UK).

This fantasy novel chronicles the journey of Talon, a village dreamer, idealistic and filled with passion. He lives a comfortable and simple life. His greatest dream is to become a knight and to marry his longtime friend, Katrina Darringer. These big dreams are challenged when he receives a piece of unexpected news that turns his world upside down. He faces a series of decisions that will define him at his core, balancing his own dreams against fighting for love. This launches him on a harrowing journey across his beloved kingdom and flings him headfirst into a torturous adventure unlike any other.

“Today more than any other age before we are faced with difficult choices. What we choose and why,” the author ponders. “This story is a reflection of the kinds of choices we make in society today. [It] reflects the messiness of our modern society, just with a little more magic and a lot of adventure.”

The main theme behind “The Coward” is about subverting society’s expectations and being brave enough to be different. It will appeal to fantasy and adventure fans who want to be transported to another world and another time where the possibilities of magic and knights and epic quests are all possible.
