A novel by

 
 
Following in the footsteps of Bernard Cornwell, Giles Kristian continues his 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.
     Rebel: Cast out from his home, rejected by his family, Tom Rivers returns to his regiment. But his former commander believes the young hothead''s recklessness and contempt for authority has no place in his troop. And yet to a spymaster like Captain Crafte, Tom''s dark and fearless nature is in itself a weapon to be turned upon the hated Cavaliers. For 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. Instead, he leads a ragged but hardened band of marauders across the moors, appearing out of the frozen world to fall on unsuspecting rebel columns like wolves. But Prince Rupert, who recognises in Mun a fellow child of war, has other uses for him, from stealing an enormous gun, to burrowing through mud beneath the walls of Lichfield. The only peace the enemy will get from Mun Rivers is that of the grave.

Huntress: Her heart broken from the loss of her beloved Emmanuel and her father, Bess Rivers must make the hardest decision of her life. Leaving her new-born son behind she rides from Sheer House seeking Lady Mary''s estranged father, for she hopes he will 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 -- can she douse the flames of her brother's' fury and see them reconciled?
