The third adventure in the Kid Beowulf series, The Rise of El Cid, arrives next month! Below is a preview of the opening scene – this seven-page sneak peek picks up shortly after the events of book two, The Song of Roland.

I hope you enjoyed the preview. If you like to read more, The Rise of El Cid is currently running three days a week at GoComics and you can pick up the story here. You can also pre-order the book here.  And if you are a long-time reader and have read the black and white Kickstarter edition of The Rise of El Cid, then please consider writing a review either at Amazon or Good Reads and tell your friends about it!
