An enthralling adventure story, honest and powerful. The Wars of the Roses are imagined here with energy, with ferocity, with hunger to engage the reader.
"It is Clements’s ability to excite both tender emotions and a capacity for bloodthirstiness that has allowed him to achieve what Shakespeare couldn’t manage, and spin a consistently enthralling story out of the Wars of the Roses."
The Lancastrian knights attacking Calais are ambushed by Sir John's archers, giving Thomas his first taste of combat. When Richard is struck by an arrow, Katherine (still disguised as Kit) removes it, saves his life, and discovers her gift for surgery. Thomas and Kit grow ever closer as Warwick's army fights its way into Kent and marches on London. In every battle, Thomas looks for Giles Riven, meaning to challenge and kill him. At last the armies of York and Lancaster meet near Northampton. The Lancastrians seem certain to win until one of their nobles defects and the Yorkists achieve a decisive victory. This double-cross was engineered by Giles Riven, back in favour and now on the same side as Thomas.
