The Ordinary Knight

Awhile ago the owner of Typative Mama Cat, Heidi Lyn Burke, contacted me about reviewing her self-published book, The Ordinary Knight and The Invisible Princess. When I decided not to blog for awhile, I totally forgot about this, but no biggie! I've been so sick the last few days that I really haven't been able to even work on my own manuscript...

Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed her novel!  Its done in two parts; and I would categorize it as a adolescent love story. I loved how the book promotes abstinence and self-esteem. Throughout the book love is constantly shown to be sacrificial, and not merely physical, and appearance (beauty) is shown to be something secondary in favor of relationships and family. Heidi is a Christian--but God and Christianity is not discussed in the novel. The morals of a biblical foundation however, are regularly implemented in the writing--a fact I found very refreshing. You'll find no steamy sex scenes in this book!
My favorite part of her novel was the story of the invisible princess, and the antics she perpetrates to chase away her suitors. Hilarious! I found this picture on deviant art that I thought went so well with her book that I just suck it in here, rather then just copying her cover art.

Heidi also has a cool articles on her blog about how to self-publish, if you are interested in that sort of thing.
