Somerville, MA – April 20, 2015 – “One Knight Alone” is an extraordinary novel that challenges the typical fairy tale knight in shining armor storyline. This adventurous book sheds light on the hardships of adhering to society norms of being a knight and the spoiled princesses these chivalrous men must save. The author of the book is Matthew Martino. He is excited to release a book that is a more realistic take on what it means to be a hero. In order to make this a reality, Martino has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $2,500 by May 31st, 2015.
The novel begins with a knight named Sir Bromen. He has left behind the life of being noble and is now living deep in the woods in a small cabin. Bromen is alone and happy to go hunting, raise rabbits, and enjoy life away from unnecessary drama. He assumed the days of risking his life are over. He took a stand against the pressures of society of the dark ages and decided to not save the princess anymore. One day, Bromen meets Garrick, a young boy whose house has been overtaken by goblins.
Garrick asks Sir Bromen to help save his home so he and his mother can live there again. The story unfolds around Sir Bromen and Garricks relationship as they travel from the cabin to the goblin-infested house. The knight reveals what is means to be a hero and shatters the boy’s reality of wanting to be daring and courageous. On their journey, they encounter an evil sorceress and the reader will learn about Bromen’s past love interest; she was a princess addicted to being a damsel in distress.
“I have two nephews,” author Matthew Martino states. “They grew up on Disney and I find it a shame that so many female characters get empowered while male characters are just goofy or worse, brutes. I want to portray a real intellectual knight and one who is weary of fighting because slaying dragons is dangerous work.”
It is time to transform the typical knight who always put up the good fight into a character that is real. Martino does a great job at developing all the characters in the book and writes a story that has never been heard before. However, he needs a bit of funding from the community to make this possible.
