Henry III is dead. His son, Edward Longshanks, is on his way back from the Crusades to claim the crown and impose his iron will on a weakened country.
In South Wales, two young brothers, Garyn and Geraint, attempt to rebuild their lives after a terrifying ordeal in Acre. Desperate to heal old wounds and provide for their futures, the appearance of an old enemy tears them apart once more and forces them onto different paths.
The nobles of North Wales, nervous and frustrated at the inaction of their leader, make a daring pact to replace him with a figurehead to unite the warring factions against the English prince.

The Welsh rebellion spreads like wildfire...
1294 AD. Caernarfon Castle, a fortress in Edward Longshanks’ chain of fortifications around Wales known as the Ring of Steel, has fallen to Madog and the rebellion.
In the south, Garyn languishes in a dungeon with only days left to live. It seems his fate is sealed, and the famed Macsen Sword is destined for the hands of the English king.
As the four main warlords of Wales join forces to wreak havoc amongst the English settlers, rampaging across the country, Edward’s castles fall one by one before their onslaught.
But across the border in England, Longshanks musters his armies and plans the re-taking of his Ring of Steel – and there will be no mercy.
The epic conclusion to the Medieval Sagas, perfect for fans of Christian Cameron and Angus Donald.
Rebellion is in the air once more in Wales...
1294 AD. After decades of fighting, Edward Longshanks of England has cemented his rule over Wales following the death of Prince Llewellyn at the Battle of Orewen Bridge in 1282 by undertaking a vast castle-building programme across the land. Fortresses have sprung up in Caernarfon, Conway and Harlech, bastions of English might.
But a new resistance is rising. Its factions squabble and bicker, however, dashing any serious hopes of rebellion. Rumour reaches Garyn, now leader of a mercenary band called the Blaidd, of a fabled sword that would enable its wielder to unite the Welsh with a single purpose – the Sword of Macsen. But finding it will not be easy...

As the Crusader knights desperately await the arrival of Edward Longshanks and his relieving army, Sultan Baibaars targets his Mamluk hordes against their greatest stronghold in Syria, the Krak des Chevaliers.
A thousand miles away in Wales, fourteen-year-old Garyn learns a disturbing secret. It will drive him on a crusade of his own: a quest to avenge his family, save his brother and in the process recover the holiest relic in the history of Christendom.
As the Crusades ignite around him, Garyn learns this is a time of brutality and chivalry; of strong men with stronger hearts, an era with no place for the weak.
A searing and unforgettable novel of medieval warfare, Medieval – Blood of the Sword is perfect for fans of Christian Cameron and David Gilman.
A bleak and barren planet on the outskirts of a distant galaxy. Life is basic and only possible under the domes erected to protect the occupants from the deadly acid rain.
Society is ruled by the priesthood, a domineering faction that uses fear and religion to keep the people subdued.
Existence continues as it has for centuries, with little change, but when a dome maintenance crew is sent out to investigate a strange object that has fallen from the sky, life as they know it changes forever.
Time is short, and as violence breaks out throughout the colonies, a race begins to save the people from themselves, and from the deity known as the seventh God.
Following the disaster at the Battle of Hattin, the Christians turn their attention to Acre, the coastal city essential in the campaign to reclaim Jerusalem. But with Saladin equally as determined to retain the strategically important city, the scene is set for a prolonged and devastating siege.
Years of battle loom and though death and disease prevail on both sides, once again the Templars answer the call to arms, each man desperate to avenge the death of so many of their brothers at Hattin.
With Jerusalem’s future dependent on the outcome, the Christians' last hope lies in the hands of one man.
History came to know him as Coeur de Lion, Richard the Lionheart.
There is an uneasy peace across the Holy Land. King Baldwin IV is on his death bed and nobles across the Outremer jostle for position, each fully aware that his heir, the boy king, Baldwin V, is sick and unlikely to survive. The politics of Jerusalem consume the pretenders to the throne, so much so, that the increasing risk from Saladin goes unnoticed.
But to the east of the Dead Sea, the notorious Templar and castellan of Karak Castle, Raynald of Chatillon, sees the danger and continues to campaign against Saladin’s people at every opportunity. His actions are brutal and find little favour from his allies, but he is the Lord of the Oultrejordain and rules it with an iron fist.
In the coastal city of Acre, a woman arrives from Cyprus, desperate to find her missing son but to do so, she has to venture deep into the heart of enemy territory, a place where Christians fear to tread. Despite risking the wrath of Raynald, she forges ahead, seeking help from an old friend and an unlikely ally, but success is far from assured, especially when she faces betrayal from those she trusts the most.
With war looming, and the Christian forces still reeling from their overwhelming defeat at Jacob’s Ford, there is only one way to defeat the Ayyubid, and that is for the Christian armies to unite under Jerusalem’s banner. But with personal gain on many people’s minds and treachery around every corner, Jerusalem is under serious threat for the first time in generations.
Too big for a satellite, yet too small to be a vessel of any significance, its scorched and damaged shell suggested a journey fraught with danger, and the faint pulsating glow within seemed to breathe a sigh of relief at the end of a voyage spanning aeons.
No movement flickered inside, no activity, no heartbeats. It was cold and quiet, devoid of all life. But this tiny shell, this insignificant craft that had no right to be here on the edge of an unknown system, had a fundamental purpose.
It contained the last hope of a species that had ripped itself apart, one that was indiscriminate in its destruction of all life. Arrogant creatures that needed new territory to survive or be lost forever in the unforgiving quicksand of time.
This was an ark. An unlikely gamble. A last desperate hope.
And it had come from Earth.
