    Book details

Following on from the success of Son of the Morning, which saw him compared to both Bernard Cornwell for the flair of his historical writing and to George RR Martin for his gripping plotting, Mark Alder takes his history of the 100 years war into France as the war between Heaven and Hell swallows up the ambitions of both the French and English crowns.

As the armies mass around Crecy the rivalries between Lucifer, Satan and God become ever deeper and more violent. Combining a cast of larger than life (yet real) characters and a truthful, deeply researched take on the religious beliefs of the time Mark Alder is embarked on a truly unique historical fantasy that will ensure you never see the 100 Years War and the history of medieval Europe in the same way again.

A brilliantly rendered tale of supernatural skulduggery with swords and codpieces, plots and plagues. It is delivered with humour, gut-churning detail and the narrative drive of a charging knight. (THE DAILY MAIL)

    Son of the Night is a wonderful sequel to the Son of the Morning.We start from where the previous book ended - the big battle is over, the dragon destroyed the angels. So step by step we meet again all the main characters from the last book. Who's been taken prisoner and has to work with enemies, who has started to regret the things they done after they seen the destruction of angels, and who's plotting a revenge for their loss or gives up in all this loss and destruction and brings out something much worse than war.The land is weak from the war and so the plague takes it to its festering bosom. The grim reaper does not only take most of medieval Europe it also reaps many of the main characters from the first book. And if they had the luck to survive the plague there is always some ill wishing rival.The history of Europe is bloody, but Mark Alder has a knack to make it even more horrific with demons and angels and hell ... it's just wonderful read. The story goes through historic places and people and events ... and yes, sometimes it is bit confusing, but that gives an extra layer and coloring to the story.It was just wonderful read.
