Besides being an author, Parke wore many hats in his time. He worked in advertising, as an actor, a research technician, maitre d’ hotel, dishwasher, and radio operator. He attended World Fantasy Con in 2011 as its official guest of honor. Unfortunately, the author had to move to a close care facility shortly after in 2012 due to a decline in memory function. Godwin passed away June 19, 2013.

Britain used to be great but has seen better days. It is shattered after seeing centuries of enslavement and then having its Roman conquerors leave it behind. Now the leaders of the tribes and the warlords are fighting to get parts of it with a hunger. The setting is the fifth century as the Roman Empire is falling apart in Britain.

This is the perfect time for someone to come along and try to figure out a way to bring the realm together even though it is in such bad condition. A centurion that is young at the time is rising up to meet the challenge. The mere mortal goes by the name of Artorius Pendragon. He feels that it is his destiny to take over the realm.

While he may be ambitious, Arthur is both fallible and flawed. He is a natural leader, but does not have a taste for the cruelties that come along with war. Still, it is his quest to pursue a way to bring the kingdom to wholeness once more. But when betrayed, can he handle losing both kingdom and a part of himself? Read this book to the end to find out what happens!

Beloved Exile is the second novel in the Firelord series by Parke Godwin.

Int his story, Guinevere is brought to life. She’s dealing with deep grief, since her husband is dead. Now she is King Arthur’s widow instead of his wife. It is up to her to help defend an empire that she also helped to bring into existence.

She also has the challenge of having people around her that she does not trust. Upstarts and traitors mean that she must be very selective about who she relies on and has close to her. Thankfully, she has Gareth, Lancelot, and Bedivere on her quest to try and unite the people in the wake of all of the disruption that came with the passing of King Arthur.

Even though she’s doing her best, it may end up not working out for Guinevere. But when betrayal means that she is sold into servitude to a Saxon that has no idea who she is, Guinevere is going to have to do what she can to try and find a way out. Can she make her way to independence? Will she find out more about herself and humanity along the way? Read this novel to catch every bit of this imaginative new tale of an old legend!
