Project A is in fact a tie-in novel for the wonderful War of the Roses game!
(EDIT) You can now get The Sword is Mightier: Scholar Knight (Book I)
“War of the Roses – The Sword is Mightier”
“The blade sheared through padding, collar bone, ribs, and came out the other side. Head, arm and shoulder thudded to the ground. The remainder of the corpse still stood, sheared torso like a bucket of steaming offal.”
England AD 1454, the chaotic eve of the Wars of the Roses.
Jack Rose would rather be a scholar than a knight. However, when a brutal landowner steals his family estates and plans to evict the tenants, Jack must take up the sword and win back his inheritance by force of arms. As he wades through increasingly lethal encounters, it becomes clear that War is in his blood. Now he must decide who he really is…
I would describe it as “Ronald Welch meets Harold Lamb with a hint of Song of Roland”…
