Description

'Heart-pounding action' THE TIMES. Winter, 1361.

After two decades of conflict, Edward III has finally agreed a treaty with the captive French King, John II. In return for his freedom, John has ceded vast tracts of territory to the English. But for five long years mercenary bands and belligerent lords have fought over the carcass of his kingdom. They will not give up their hard-won spoils to honour a defeated king's promises.

If the English want their prize, they'll have to fight for it... Thomas Blackstone will have to fight for it.

As he battles to enforce Edward's claim, Thomas Blackstone will see his name blackened, his men slaughtered, his family hunted. He will be betrayed and, once again, he'll face the might of the French army on the field. But this time there will be no English army at his back. He'll face the French alone.

Review quote

'Gripping ... The narrative is exceptionally pacey and atmospheric; it has heart. The historical background is fascinating, accurate and thoroughly researched. The novel's characterisation is thoroughly rounded and convincing. It is an exceptionally well-written book with such vivid prose it easily transports the reader back into the high medieval world' * Historical Novel Society * 'If you haven't read any of David's Master of War series, I can heartily recommend them, just great reading that keeps you engaged all the way through' * Devonshire Magazine *
