Rebel Tom Rivers has been rejected by both his family and his commanding officer. But spymaster Captain Crafte sees in the young hothead a fearlessness that could be used to strike at the very heart of the Royalist cause.
Renegade Raw with grief at the death of his father, Edmund Rivers has rejected the peace talks between Parliament and the King. Now he leads a band of ruthless marauders against the rebels. However, Prince Rupert, recognising a kindred spirit, has other, no less daring plans.
Huntress Heart broken by the deaths that surround her, Bess Rivers bravely leaves her infant son and Sheer House to go in search of the one person who might help her douse the flames of her brothers’ fury. . .
The second novel in Giles' acclaimed Bleeding Land series, Brothers’ Fury is a powerful and thrilling novel of family turmoil and civil war.
“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.”
“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.”
