Publisher's Summary

In 1299 AD, in the shadow of Canterbury Cathedral's spires, a fateful encounter brings together Edward, teenage heir to the English throne, and a darkly handsome soldier from Gascony, Piers Gaveston. Youthful infatuation gives way to a bond more powerful than any attempt at keeping them apart. Edward and Piers enter a pact of sworn brotherhood. A decade later, Edward's spirited new queen, Isabella of France, quickly becomes smitten as much with her royal consort as with his dashing lover. But the power-hungry Earls resent Gaveston's monopoly of royal favour and his defiant self-assurance. Political intrigue mounts and the Earl of Lancaster has Gaveston murdered, leaving Edward devastated and thirsting for revenge. 

This debut novel, an alternate historical epic with its foundation in the story of England's most infamous homosexual prince, will captivate listeners.

BRILLIANT

I have rarely enjoyed this particular genre as much as with this excellent novel. The book is well read and progresses at a good pase, with an excellent narrator.
I have realised how learning history through a novel, accepting the obvious problems , can be both enjoyable and full filling.
