Warlord's Gold

(The fifth book in the Civil War Chronicles series)
A novel by


"Fans of Cornwell will love Captain Innocent Stryker."
Ben Kane

Autumn,1643. As an increasingly bitter war rages across England, Captain Innocent Stryker leaves Oxford with orders to recover a lost treasure, vital to the success of the Royalist cause. But a seemingly simple mission to the remote Scilly Isles is soon jeopardised, for enemies lie in wait. A formidable Parliamentarian agent has been sent ahead of Stryker's force, intent on defeating Royalist plans. Feared by ally and enemy alike, he is a man whose determination is only matched by his hatred for Stryker.

The quest for the gold takes Stryker across storm-ravaged seas, through enemy territory and finally to the Royalist stronghold of Basing House. And it is there that Stryker will face his most dangerous challenge yet.

Praise for Michael Arnold and the Civil War Chronicles
'The battle scenes are uncomfortably good' Historical Novel Society

'Every last part... oozes authenticity. Fans of Cornwell's Sharpe novels will love Captain Innocent Stryker - he's uglier, meaner and cleverer than Sharpe. Tremendous!' Ben Kane, bestselling author of The Forgotten Legion Chronicles

'Crackling with the sound of musket fire and punctuated with the roar of cannon, these books bring the Cromwellian conflict to life in an intense battle of wits and weaponry.' Press Association

'A swashbuckling novel which I did not want to put down... Arnold seems to have been an eye witness to the events he describes.' Battlefield

'A dark-hued romp, livid with the scents, sounds and colours of a country on the brink of implosion... impressive' Daily Express

'Michael Arnold's Civil War Chronicles have the makings of a fun, Sharpe-like series' History Today

'If you love Sharpe, you'll be knocked out by the 17th-century civil war adventures of Captain Innocent Stryker... at times this one-eyed veteran makes Sharpe look rather civilised' Peterborough Evening Telegraph

'Arnold is at his best describing real events... if you like Cornwell you will like Arnold' Historical Novels Review

'Heart-thumping action... Arnold brings the English Civil War to colourful life' Lancashire Evening Post

'Captures the grittiness, as well as the doomed glamour, of the Royalist cause' Charles Spencer

'You can smell the gunpowder and hear the cannon fire... Arnold's passion for the period suffuses every page' Robyn Young, author of the Brethren trilogy

'A fast-moving, exciting novel... Forget Sharpe and enjoy the exploits of Captain Stryker in an earlier and dangerous period of history. Once hooked you will look forward to the next in this series' Ryedale Gazette and Herald
