This is the second book on the ‘Blood’ series and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
It follows on Blood’s Game and Holcroft is now a more seasoned soldier and no longer ‘spies’.
The story begins with the Battle of Sedgemoor, with the expectation and planning of a battle. Holcroft has strategies for his cannon and not always inline with his seniors. The story continues to Revolution of 1688 and the overthrowing of King James. There are historical facts mixed with the fiction which gives this such a believable feel and authenticity to the story.
The characters are well written and rounded and you can’t help but like Holcroft and his integrity.
There is the usual intrigue, exciting and frightening battles and even murder to keep you turning the pages. A real romping, war and glory tale
