Much like his knight-lord father, Edwin cares little for pretty words of poetry and song. Duty, loyalty, discipline: these are the only words that truly matter to him as a knight in service of the Brotherhood . . . that is, until he meets Evelina.

Beautiful beyond measure, she's also a Gravewalker, a witch able to make use of the emotional residues left behind in cemeteries and burial grounds to power her magics.

Years later, Mela, now the most powerful Gravewalker in her clan, marshals her sisters to abandon their peaceful ways as caretakers of the dead and instead raise an army of undead warriors against the knight-lord and his men, threatening utter ruin for all.

Freed by an irascible bard with her own dubious intentions, Edwin is now the only one who can put a stop to his daughter's quest for vengeance. To save everything he knows, he must become more than just a knight . . . He must become the Knight Proper.

Editorial Reviews

"The Knight Proper is, at its undead heart, an entertaining and oddly touching story about two people trying to reconnect, with one delightfully wicked sequence of events that, frankly, I wish I'd thought of. Readers of dark fantasy would do well to check out Matt and Adam's efforts." - Keith C. Blackmore, author of the Mountain Man series"Greven and Deller have crafted a wonderful world of witches, knights and the undead for their tragic hero and twisted anti-heroine to traverse. Witty dialogue and well-developed characters build an atmosphere reminiscent of the mystical and shadowy lands of LeGuin's Earthsea Trilogy." - Janna Grace, author of The Talkers are Talking
