Description

Rebel Cast out from his home, rejected by his family, Tom Rivers returns to his regiment. But his commander believes the young hothead's recklessness and contempt for authority has no place in his troop. But to a spymaster like Captain Crafte, Tom's dark and fearless nature is in itself a weapon to be turned upon the hated Cavaliers - who else would dare to infiltrate Oxford, now the Royalist capital, to destroy the King's printing press and strike a blow at the very heart of the enemy? Renegade Raw with grief at the death of his father, Edmund Rivers rejects the peace talks between Parliament and the King. He chooses instead to lead a hardened band of marauders across the moors, appearing out of the frozen world to fall on unsuspecting rebel columns like wolves. But Prince Rupert - recognising in Mun a fellow child of war - has other plans for him, from stealing a colossal gun, to tunneling beneath the walls of Lichfield. The only peace the enemy will get from Mun Rivers is that of the grave.
Huntress Her heart broken following the deaths of her beloved Emmanuel and her father, Bess Rivers takes the hardest decision of her life: to leave her new-born son and depart Sheer House in search of the one person who might help her re-unite what is left of her broken family. Risking her own life on the road, Bess will do whatever it takes to find her brother Tom and secure his Royal pardon, but can she douse the flames of her brothers' fury and see them reconciled?

Rebel
Cast out by his family, Tom Rivers returns to his regiment. His commander believes the young hothead’s contempt for authority has no place in his troop. But to a spymaster like Captain Crafte, Tom’s dark and fearless nature is itself a weapon to be turned upon the hated Cavaliers and used to strike at their very hearts.

Renegade
Raw with grief at the death of his father, Edmund Rivers rejects the peace talks between Parliament and the King. He chooses instead to lead a band of marauders across the moors, intent on exterminating rebel forces like the vermin they believe them to be. But Prince Rupert recognises in Mun a fellow child of war and has other, no less daring plans for him.

Huntress
Her heart broken following the deaths of her beloved Emmanuel and her father, Bess Rivers takes the hardest decision of her life: to leave her son and Sheer House and to go in search of the one person who might help her re-unite her family. Risking her own life on the road, can Bess douse the flames of her brothers’ fury and see them reconciled?

Brothers’ Fury continues Giles Kristian’s thrilling and acclaimed story of the Rivers family, whose lives are turned upside down by that most brutal and tragic of wars – the English Civil War . . .

Review quote

"Giles Kristian does it again: another surge of hope and fury, of passion, cannon fire and musketry to blow you away and leave you reeling in its wake. Fantastic, powerful, blood-stirring stuff... done with such panache, such daring, such glory that you'll be aching for the next installment." Manda Scott "This is enthralling, excellently researched and lyrically imagined. Honour, duty, selfishness and terror - you can't get better ingredients for a good book." Robert Low - bestselling author of the 'Oathsworn' Viking series "A rip-roaring sequel to The Bleeding Land ... well drawn, and the language and social norms of the time are used to good effect."

About Giles Kristian

Family history and his storytelling hero, Bernard Cornwell, inspired Giles Kristian to write his first novels, the acclaimed Raven Viking series. He's long been fascinated by the English Civil War - from absorbing the vibrant illustrations in school text books to appreciating the cold efficiency of Cromwell's New Model Army, admiring the flair of the Cavaliers and revelling in the romance of the doomed Royalist cause and it is this complex and brutal conflict that provides the backcloth to his new historical series, The Bleeding Land. Giles lives in Leicestershire. To find out more, visit www.gileskristian.com
