Today there’s more book post, this time some great new books from Aries fiction the imprint from Head of Zeus.  One of these books is for a blog tour and the other isn’t.  One is a hard back and the other isn’t.  One I recieved in June and one in July.  Both are, however, some brilliant sounding historical fiction stories, although they take place at different times in Britain’s history. A huge thank you to everyone at the publisher for these two books, I can’t wait to read them! 🙂  Let’s take a look at what is here, first let’s see both books together…

Oath Bound by Richard Cullen – The champion of a dead king has nothing left to lose…and nothing more to fear.
Hastings, 1066.  Styrkar the Dane stumbles wounded and delirious fron the corpse-strewn battlefield of Senlac Hill.  He has watched his king butchered at the hands of foreign knights, seen his countrymen defeated in battle, and he will not stop until there is a reckoning.
Styrkar embarks on a bloody quest to avenge his dead master, becoming an outlaw in the wilds and earning a fearsome reputation.  when a Breton knight seeks to track down this fugitive and make his own name, he can little envisage the task he has set himself.  For Styrkar, the Red Wolf, last surviving housecarl to King Harold Godwinson, will carve the story of his vengeance in Frankish flesh…or die in the attempt.

And now onto the hardback…

The Lawless Land by Boyd & Beth Morrison – Live by the sword.  Die for the truth.
England, 1351.  The Pestilence has ravaged the land.  Villages lie abandoned but for crows and corpses.  Highways are patrolled by marauders and murderers.  In these dark and dangerous times, the wise keep to themselves.
But Gerard Fox cannot afford to be wise.  The young knight has been robbed of his ancestral home, his family name tarnished.  To regain his lands and reputations, he sets forth to petition the one man who can restore them.
Fate places Fox on the wrong road at the wrong time as he hurtles towards a chance encounter.  It will entangle him with an enigmatic woman, a relic of incalculable value, a dark fanily secret.  It will lead him far from home and set him on a collision course with one of the most ambitious and dangerous men in Europe – a man on the cusp of seizing Cristendom’s hishest office.
And now, Fox is the only one standing in his way…

 

I’m not sure what my blog tour date is yet for Oath Bound, sometime in late July (I better find out!😅) but I am excited to start reading both of these books!  I just love medieval times, it’s one of my three favourite historical periods (can you guess the other two?), so I can’t wait to see what will happen in both of these books! 😀
