Edward the Third stands in the burnt ruin of an English church. He is beset on all sides. He needs a victory against the French to rescue his Kingship. Or he will die trying.

Philip of Valois can put 50,000 men in the field. He has sent his priests to summon the very Angels themselves to fight for France. Edward could call on God for aid but he is an usurper. What if God truly is on the side of the French?

But for a price, Edward could open the gates of Hell and take an unholy war to France . . .

Mark Alder has brought the epic fantasy of George R.R. Martin to the vivid historical adventure of Bernard Cornwell and has a created a fantasy that will sweep you to a new vision of the Hundred Years War.

Review:

SFX FIVE STAR RECOMMENDATION - SON OF THE MORNING is a smart, gripping historical fantasy (SFX)

A triumphant combination of great characters and an epic - yet not too sprawling - plot....a vivid and realistic story that, once you're in, you'll find it hard to leave (Fantasy Faction)

What the author has accomplished here is nothing short of remarkable, providing a rich window into an alternative history that hits all the right notes and doesn't alienate those without a deep knowledge of historical happenings (SF BOOK)

This is fast-paced and absorbing but most of all it is as visual as a richly coloured medieval tapestry packed with detail (We Love This Book)

It is a novel that demands to be read (Fantasy Book Review)

Expertly written, highly detailed and vividly imagined, this is an outstanding work of historical fiction/alternate history which pulled me in with its prose and story from page 1 (Grim Dark Fantasy Reader)

a triumphant combination of great characters and an epic - yet not too sprawling - plot....a vivid and realistic story that, once your in, you'll find it hard to leave. (Fantasy Faction)

Book Description:
