To be honest, I don’t like General Andrew Walker. I would never want to meet him, and I’m certainly glad I’m not his wife or son. That being said, I’m glad he’s part of the story. He is the father of Felix Walker, King Jorrid’s right hand man, and a necessary antagonist.
Andrew Walker is a rather shallow man, caring only for things of this world, such as power and money. He is cruel, being the sort of man who enjoys locking people in the dungeon, and regularly rages at his son Felix. He married Felix’s mother only because she had a large dowry, and even so, resented his wife’s kind, Christian nature. I’m sure you can see by now why I don’t like him.
In the original draft, Andrew, like the king, wasn’t present until almost the end. When I wrote about Felix’s life, I was able to give more depth to his character. I’m not really sure why Andrew is the way he is, but I do know that Felix overcame insurmountable odds in becoming the good, Christian young man that he is. Despite my dislike of the character, General Andrew Walker adds something necessary to Across the Stars...it wouldn’t be complete without him.
Across the Stars is available on Amazon Kindle for $1.99 and should be available as a paperback for $9.99 sometime next week.

I am a 19 year old home-school graduate and a Christian children's book author. I'm involved in politics, and I play the violin. I make a lot of my own clothes and I love taking care of children. I generally blog about my books, but I also have an indefinitely running series on my favorite fictional characters. My friends' very awesome books seem to pop up around here quite often. I rarely post reviews here anymore, but my sisters and I regularly review books and movies at ShireReviews.blogspot.com I hope you enjoy your time here on my blog!
