Prince Isamu

This is the next tale that comes after the Medieval Twins, as I told you in the Medieval Tales post. This tale is about honor, revenge, and to avenge the death of a Japanese emperor. But, this is not a trilogy. They are volumes. This story tells how one man became the emperor of Japan by overthrowing his evil aunt.

Here are the volumes:
1. The Evil Empress
2. The Life of Exile
3. The Hero’s Destiny

There are different characters in each volume. It may get confusing to know which character is the main one. Just find a way to keep tack of them all. In volume one, the main character is Princess Rin. Princess Rin is the emperor’s stepdaughter. She was born in a clan that was now long forgotten. She and her mother were taken in the emperor’s palace and the emperor married Rin’s mother. She is also Sora’s stepsister and is nineteen years old. Princess Sora is emperor’s daughter from his first wife. Unfortunately, her mother died from an unknown illness. Sora did have an older brother, but he was killed in bloody battle. Which made Sora the heir to her father’s throne. Sora is fourteen years old in this volume. I know I said there was going to be two volumes but, I change my mind.

The next character is Emperor Daichi who is the emperor of all of Japan. He is Sora’s father and Rin’s stepfather. He ruled Japan for thirty four years. He brought an era of peace and goodness. But, that all changed when he was murdered by his second wife, Empress Izumi. You see, a long time ago before Daichi’s family became the royal family. They were at war with another clan who wanted to rule Japan. They were soon exiled but what Daichi didn’t know was that Izumi and Rin were from this rivaling clan. Their goal to take control of Japan is for filled by murdering the emperor so, Rin can control Japan as empress. She later became known as the Evil Empress of Japan.

In volume two, the position of the characters change. The main character in volume two is our Princess Sora. She now an exiled princess who is running away from her stepmother and her stepsister, after her father has been murdered. She find herself in a village that will except her as one of their clan members. Sora is now seventeen years old. So, what happen to Princess Rin? Well, she took her stepfather’s throne and she is planing to kill Sora when she finds her. Empress Izumi has become a loyal servant to Empress Rin. Even though she’s an old woman, Izumi has been in many battles. The empress’s has always thought of finding a husband and giving birth to an heir. Rin is afraid that the husband would take control of all Japan.

The next character to appear is Hayato. He is the one who founded Sora and took her in as a member of his clan. Later on, the two fell in love and end up being married. Hayato is a very kind person and is a very good hunter. His father is a shogun and Hayato wants to be one as well. When Hayato asked Sora to marry her, his father was so pleased that he agreed to let them marry. If Empress Rin can not give birth to an heir. Sora will give birth to a son that will become the next emperor of Japan.

In the very last volume, the new main character is Sora’s son. His name is Prince Isamu. He’s the heir to his grandfather’s throne and he has a destiny to take down his aunt to restore his family’s dynasty. His father who is Hayato is a shogun and his mother is an exiled princess who is Sora. All his life, he thought that he was special. Being a prince is what made him unique. We still have a normal cast of characters except for Izumi because she was killed at the end of the second volume. Empress Rin doesn’t trust Prince Isamu because Rin knows that Isamu is her nephew. She’ll do anything to kill Isamu. But this will bring the era of the Evil Empress to an end.

The Medieval Twins

I’ve told you about my historical fiction combination series called The Medieval Tales. Well, this will be the first trilogy of The Medieval Tales. I believe you will really like this trilogy the most. The series plot is about two twin brothers and how one of them will one day control their family’s land as a lord of England.

The three books are:
1.The Medieval Twins
2.The Lucky Twin
3.The Knight’s Destiny

I think these titles are pretty good. I usually tell you the characters first. But, I feel like this trilogy is so special that I will tell you about my inspiration for for this trilogy. I was in social studies class and we were learning about medieval Europe. The lords of feudalism, it’s history, etc. anyway I’ve learned that after the lord dies, the land will pass down to his oldest son. But, what if the lord had twin sons. (Lords of feudalism were very selfish). This lead to the inspiration of the Medieval Twins.

I will now tell you about the characters of this wonderful trilogy. The main character is a squire (who becomes a knight in the third book) is named Abel Godfrey. His ages are 14 in book one and two but turns 23 in the third book. Serfs that work on Abel’s father’s land say that Abel should’ve been chosen as the heir of his father’s land. But, Abel’s father is a selfish lord that only cares about Abel’s twin brother. Abel’s evil twin brother is Galen. He’s the same age and looks a lot like Abel but, he is just like his father. Galen is selfish, cruel, and gets what ever he wants. His father calls him the lucky twin. As you will read this trilogy you’ll ask yourself one question. Which twin will dominate all?

The lord of this trilogy who is Abel’s father. His name is Lord Brendan Godfrey of the Godfrey Land. He is the one who made Galen a ruthless person. He chosen Galen as his heir to his land. Lord Brendan doesn’t trust anyone because he thinks they are weak and pathetic. The only people he trusts are Galen, his wife, and a lord named Lord Eric Ward. In fact, Lord Brendan and Lord Eric have trusted each other for years. This is a reason why Abel was sent to live with Lord Eric. Not only was Eric a good knight, Eric and Brendan trusted each other as friends.

The next character I will introduce to you is Lady Gillian. She’s the twin’s mother and Lord Brendan’s wife. She loves her twin sons but, she felt a little sad for her son, Abel. She wanted Abel and Galen to control the Godfrey land. But, she never told her husband because she was afraid what he might say to her. I know in The Medieval Tales, there wasn’t going to be any romance but, I have changed my mind about that. In the second book, Abel was once friends with Lord Brendan’s vessel’s daughter named Hayley Payne. Abel then learns to trust her and he vows that one day, he would marry her.

I will put some nuns into this trilogy. These nuns lost their monastery after a cruel battle against two lords. The leader of the nuns is Mother Addison. She is a kind hearted nun who sees Abel as a gift from God. She went through a life of peace and kindness. Unfortunately, she dies in the third book. All the nuns are young women. The youngest of them all is a nun named Sister Elva. She is a year younger than Abel and follows the footsteps of mother Addison. When Mother Addison dies, Elva takes over as the leader of the nuns, finds a monastery and leaves the Godfrey and Ward lands.

Abel isn’t alone while he takes on the challenges of becoming a knight. Lord Eric’s son Keaton Ward is the only squire that is Abel’s friend. Keaton is trying to follow in his father’s footsteps and be like his father. But, his mother, Lady Corliss, is afraid of her son getting hurt. Lord Eric isn’t worried because he knows that Abel and Keaton are very good squires and will become very powerful knights. One last character I would like to introduce is Abel’s horse named Codi. She was born in the first book and she later become Abel’s trusted horse in battle. There are a lot more characters in this trilogy but, these are the only one I will introduce now.

I hope you would like this trilogy and the characters of it. This trilogy will become one of the favorites in the Medieval Tales. And if you have a favorite character already, then write down below who it is and why you like that character. 😊🌺
