What Are AmberPax™ Collections?

Simply put, AmberPax™ Collections are groups of five stories centered around a specific theme. Each story within an AmberPax™ is released individually, on the same day as the others, and can be purchased separately, but these five stories can also be purchased as a single unit (the full AmberPax™) at a discount, currently 25%. Generally, an AmberPax™ is similar to an "anthology" of stories, but instead of the titles being released in only a single volume (file), they are also available individually. These AmberPax™ Collections are sold exclusively through our website and only in electronic format.

THIS BLOG is for news about the Pax Collections - follow it to keep up with releases, find early news of the upcoming collections, and share Pax fun and chat with the authors!

All Amber Paxes can be bought at Amber Quill HERE.

The Lusty Knights of Blaze by D.J. Manly

Knights and the ideals of knighthood appeared often in medieval and Renaissance literature, and have a sizable niche in literary romance. Some notable examples would be The Song of Roland by Geoffrey Chaucer, and Miguel de Cervantes' Don Quixote

Who can forget the Knights of the Roundtable?

A Knight was expected to be a brave warrior and to always act in a courteous and professional manner in military affairs. Knights were accorded respect even from their enemy. When knights were captured as prisoners of war, usually they were given comfortable accommodations until exchanged for ransom, unlike a common soldier. 

Chivalry was a characteristic of knighthood. It went hand in hand with professional ethics and military service to the king in exchange for landed property. Knights were expected to be brave and heroic but were not your run of the mill soldier. They were noble and gentile, and were often intellects and avid horsemen. They were respectful of others, even those who were their enemies. 

In the Lusty Knights of Blaze, Dustin Porter is one such knight. He represents the romantic notion of the knights of old, possessing nobility that speaks to honor and duty. 

I set the story in a time unknown in a fictitious land because I wanted Dustin to be a shining example of what we’ve come to expect from a Knight.  Dustin embodies all the romance and bravery that comes with his station in life, and I’m sure the reader will fall in love with him right along with Karnal.


Lusty Knights of Blaze by D.J. Manly is now available at Amber Allure.

  1. I think I prefer the romantic view of knights and I do enjoy a tale that reflects this. But sometimes there has to be a balance with the quintessential bad knight or king, which gives our hero the chance to save the day, the love of his life and defend his king and land. Yea methinks this tale sounds a good one, thank the all for a chance to win this set of knightly tomes :)
