Book Blast – Girl With A Knife – Assault
An epic historical fiction novel of love and revenge, in the vein of Ken Follett’s Pillars of the Earth, debut author James T. Hogg’s Girl with a Knife: Assault features a compelling heroine who must fight for justice and vengeance in ever-dangerous 1600’s Colonial New England.
Faythe Emily Wentworth was taught by her father how to fight, and never shies from a conflict, no matter the odds. In her small settlement town, she must always be on guard. She is especially wary of one of the Downing brothers who taunts her, longing to take her, threatening to do so by force…
Faythe’s little sister Chloe is different. She is sweet-tempered, always seeing the good in others, and never suspecting ill intent.
Chloe’s innocence is shattered in a vicious attack, and Faythe is determined to seek vengeance and justice for her sister, and later, her family. Armed with a knife and a burning obsession, Faythe fights the superstitions and injustices that have led to her family’s destruction.Read more
Readers will become thoroughly invested in these compelling characters, richly portrayed by author Hogg. Much like J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, Girl with a Knife was originally a story Hogg would tell his daughters. He created a world where girls and women of all cultures are equal, or even superior, to the male characters around them, in books that will appeal to women and men of all ages.
Girl With A Knife is his first fiction novel, writing as James T. Hogg. The novel is based on a story he told many times to his now-grown children. The goal—then and now—was to create a story that the reader simply cannot put down, even when it is midnight and the reader has to get up to go to work the next morning.
