The Earl King
By: Robert A. Zarnoch
About the Book
Magnes Knauer is a college dropout, estranged from her difficult father, vacuous mother, and spoiled sister. She’s stationed at an insignificant job at an Army post when she meets Koenig – the Earl King – a grown-up, cynical Peter Pan who can be seen only by children, the unloved and those about to die. He presses Magnes to abandon a doomed world and come with him to a storied afterlife. Koenig agrees to let her stay if she can find a single person that loves her, but if she fails, she promises to go with him and surrender her life.
In this dark, modern retelling of a familiar fairy-tale, can love conquer death? Or will Magnes die at the touch of the Earl King’s hand?
