Our glorious artist, Mathia Arkoniel, is continuing to paint some of the scary, beautiful creatures of the gay high fantasy romance, The Elven King’s Blade, including two of yours coming up!
This entry though is one of the first frightening beings we see in the story, and the one that causes Ciaran’s father to think he’s going crazy. It is the Black Knight.
These fearsome warriors ride at the head of the Riven’s army, cutting down their enemies with their wickedly sharp blades. Some say that there is nothing beneath the armor they wear. Others believe that they are the bodies of the Riven’s enemies brought back from the dead to fight for them. But no one truly knows as when a Black Knight is killed, armor and all, they disappear.
The steeds the Black Knights ride are as fearsome as their riders. These horses have matching glowing red eyes to their riders and eat flesh. Yeah, you read that right. These horses are carnivores and like to snack on the fallen.
So check out Mathia’s interpretation of my Black Riders and, if you haven’t already, check out The Elven King’s Blade to see them in action! Let me know what you think in the comments!
