The King's Champion by Nancy Northcott

The King's Champion

Boar King's Honor Trilogy, Book #3

by Nancy Northcott

The Boar King’s Honor Trilogy:

A wizard’s misplaced trust

A king wrongly blamed

A bloodline cursed until they clear the king’s name.

Book 3: The King’s Champion

Caught up in the desperate evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force from France in the summer of 1940, photojournalist Kate Shaw witnesses death and destruction that trigger disturbing visions. She doesn’t believe in magic and tries to pass them off as survivor guilt or an overactive imagination, but the increasingly intense visions force her to accept that she is not only magically Gifted but a seer.

In Dover, she meets her distant cousin Sebastian Mainwaring, Earl of Hawkstowe and an officer in the British Army. He’s also a seer and is desperate to recruit her rare Gift for the war effort. The fall of France leaves Britain standing alone as the full weight of Nazi military might threatens. Kate’s untrained Gift flares out of control, forcing her to accept Sebastian’s help in conquering it as her ethics compel her to use her ability for the cause that is right.

As this fledgling wizard comes into her own, her visions warn of an impending German invasion, Operation Sealion, which British intelligence confirms. At the same time, desire to help Sebastian, who’s doomed by a family curse arising from a centuries-old murder, leads Kate to a shadowy afterworld between life and death and the trapped, fading souls who are the roots of her family’s story. From the bloody battlefields of France to the salons of London, Kate and Sebastian race against time to free his family’s cursed souls and to stop an invasion that could doom the Allied cause. 

The King’s Champion concludes Nancy’s Northcott’s exciting Boar King’s Honor Trilogy.


"The King’s Champion (The Boar King's Honor Book 3) by Nancy Northcott, like the previous two books in this series, sent tingles down my spine. The blend of well-researched history along with the magical elements made this novel an absolute joy to read from start to finish. It is the kind of book that once started is near on impossible to turn away from — one more page became one more chapter. I was completely enthralled with this story, from that very first sentence to the final full stop. The crystalline prose and the vivacious storytelling that I have come to expect from Northcott’s writing were evident throughout this novel."
~ Mary Anne Yarde, The Coffee Pot Book Club Editorial Review

"This was a really satisfying final book in the Boar Kind's Honour Trilogy. Set during the Second World War this is the story of a courageous American reporter unaware of her family's gifts and the titled aristocrat who asks for her help to turn the tide of the war."
~ Chris, Amazon reviewer
