#GiveAway ~ QUEEN MOXIE By Hank Quense

By Hank Quense

I’m happy to welcome author Hank Quense here today as he is on tour with his latest release, QUEEN MOXIE.

Come join in the fun and enter to win one of the wonderful prizes being given away by the author. 

First, a summary of the story.

In this humorous tale, it is now ten years since Moxie became Queen of Usca in south-west Britain. A tribe of Picts shatters her peaceful reign by migrating from the
north and occupying territory just outside her border.

Moxie decides to build a fort to help control the wild Picts. To her surprise, she discovers
that the fort has been built on land claimed by the forest fairies. Oberon, the King of the fairies, destroys the fort using magic.

Moxie threatens Oberon with military might. Oberon threatens Moxie with magic. To counter Oberon, Moxie asks Camelot to send Merlin to help her out and Arthur agrees.

Once Merlin arrives, Moxie demands that he confront Oberon and use magic spells to defeat the Fairy King. Merlin isn’t thrilled by the request. Moxie wants him to cast field magic spells, a type of spell casting that Merlin has never been able to master.

The Picts hear about the fort and decide Moxie has become hostile. They determine to attack rather than wait for Moxie to attack them.

Meanwhile, Moxie’s only child, the ten-year-old daughter, Aethelwine, decides she won’t be the next queen, leaving Moxie without an heir.

Tristan, a Knight of the Round Table, has been exiled by Arthur for insulting all the nobles with his songs and is staying in Moxie’s castle. He is working on a play to be
staged in Stonehenge. Tristan hopes the play will end his exile since it praises King Arthur and Camelot.

Faced with threats from the fairies and the Picts, Moxie decides to take on the fairies. Merlin tells Moxie and Oberon they are both idiots for fighting each other when the
real threat comes from the Picts who will be able to conquer both after they fight a battle and are weakened by casualties.

Moxie and Oberon agree to a treaty and combine forces to confront the Picts who have been reinforced by boatloads of warriors.

Can Moxie and Oberon convince the Picts to back down?

And what about Aethelwine?

Is Tristan’s play any good?
