Yep, Allen was previously in the army. Considering this is set soon after World War II ended, that's not too surprising.
A Year and a Day follows Robert Allen, reluctant butler to Princess Moraine. Allen spends his time managing the staff, all the while wishing his life was more heroic. When he discovers that his employer is a potential target for The Wild Hunt, it seems he's gotten his wish. But when the skeletal riders of the Hunt arrive, what's a butler to do?
A Year and a Day has been discontinued due to nerve damage in my arm. The series is currently being rewritten as a prose novel.
Code Name: Hunter follows the adventures of Max McConnor and Ruby Pyrenees, two members of the Royal Center of Special Investigations, as they deal with Fey blood oaths, family members, a magical princess, and their toughest adversary of all... diplomacy.
Code Name: Hunter is currently being rerun on a Monday, Wednesday, and Friday schedule.
