The King's Own
by W. Marshall


GENRE: Low Fantasy



The King’s Own are as feared as they are ruthless, doing all of those hard, and sometimes terrible, things necessary to ensure the safety of the realm. Owing allegiance to the King alone, they are his spies, his assassins, and his advisors. They exist to walk in the shadows, to enforce the King’s will, to change the course of entire wars, and to root out dissenters. They live without family, in service to the crown, unknown and unsung.

A young man conscripted to fight in a war far away from home. Blood and loss tempered with hope and a vow. Recruited into the King’s Own, he must learn quickly to do whatever it takes to serve the kingdom so that others can live their lives in relative peace and safety. But just how far will he go to keep his oath, especially when the King is murdered?



“Cousin!” Countess Lucretia exclaimed as she emerged from her carriage. Her eyes had met mine as she stepped down, instantly recognizing me as the one who had written the letter we had smuggled in. Only the gods knew how. She embraced me, kissing me on both cheeks, the scent of her perfume something I wasn’t used to. I responded in kind, Commodus’s lessons in decorum suddenly paying off. “I am beside myself that you would join us in our darkest hour.”

She turned to Lord Commander Emren, giving him a curtsy. “I thank thee, Lord Commander, for this kindness.” The Lord Commander inclined his head, gracious despite the fact he didn’t have to be, not with hundreds of soldiers and knights behind him. I climbed into the carriage with the Countess, Commodus climbing on top with the driver, playing his role.

“What game is this you are playing?” the Countess demanded as soon as the door shut. The horses set out, pulling us along. “I need an army to break this siege, but all I get is one boy with a beard to hide his age and a middle-aged man?” I fought back the heat I felt rising, swallowing her insult and instead focusing on the task at hand.

“We are the King’s Own, your Grace.”



W. Marshall was born in Florida, but found his home when he moved to Colorado. He is a lover of movies, books, dogs, science fiction, fantasy, and military history. His debut novel, The King’s Own, is a work of dark fiction that asks hard questions as it examines the life and labors of the protagonist.

In his free time, he enjoys running, reading a wide array of fiction, and writing science fiction and fantasy.

  8. Was just wondering what inspired the author to write the King's Own?

    1. Hi, Cindy! Thank you for the question!

      I've had the idea for this book floating around in my head since high school, which was...longer ago than I care to admit. I wanted to tell a tale about one person, what makes them who they are, and how events and decisions they make along the way can shape an entire kingdom.

  9. I'm always on the lookout for a new author to enjoy...and I'm pretty sure I just found one!

  10. Is there a favorite book out there you wish they would turn into a movie?

  11. Was wondering what's next for the author, in terms of the next book?

  12. What's your favorite book?author? movie? show?
