Kingmaker: Broken Faith Synopsis

An enthralling adventure story, honest and powerful. The Wars of the Roses are imagined here with energy, with ferocity, with hunger to engage the reader. (Hilary Mantel). In the north, the Lancastrian king struggles to hold power, while in the south, the princes of the house of York prepare for war. Across this land, pursued by the Church and the Law, a young man, Thomas, and a young woman, Catherine, make their way, bearing proof of a secret both sides will kill to learn.

Kingmaker: Broken Faith Press Reviews

'Toby Clements is an exceptionally good writer. His debut was a tour de force. His second novel outdoes that, bringing new depth to his characters, and continuing his vivid, blood-soaked insight into the real, grim, ghastly, and occasionally glorious human cost of the Wars of the Roses. This is history in the raw: powerful, potent stuff, always real, but always gloriously unpredictable. This is a gem of a book, one of my must-reads for this year.' Manda Scott

'The book glides along effortlessly, it's a simple excellent love story, bursting with action, intrigue and history. a real contender for book of the year.' Parmenion Books

Since then he has read everything he can get his hands on and spent long weekends at re-enactment fairs. He has learned to use the longbow and how to fight with the poll axe, how to start a fire with a flint and steel and a shred of baked linen. He has even helped ...
