REBEL. LEADER. BROTHER. KING.

1179. Henry II is King of England, Wales, Ireland, Normandy, Brittany and Aquitaine. The House of Plantagenet reigns supreme.

But there is unrest in Henry's house. Not for the first time, his family talks of rebellion.

Ferdia - an Irish nobleman taken captive during the conquest of his homeland - saves the life of Richard, the king's son. In reward for his bravery, he is made squire to Richard, who is already a renowned warrior.

Crossing the English Channel, the two are plunged into a campaign to crush rebels in Aquitaine. The bloody battles and gruelling sieges which followed would earn Richard the legendary name of Lionheart.

But Richard's older brother, Henry, is infuriated by his sibling's newfound fame. Soon it becomes clear that the biggest threat to Richard's life may not be rebel or French armies, but his own family...

'A rip-roaring epic, filled with arrows and spattered with blood. Gird yourself with mail when you start.' Paul Finch

'Ben's deeply authoritative depiction of the time is delivered in a deft manner.' Simon Scarrow

Antonia Senior, THE TIMES

«Richard the Lionheart's name echoes down the centuries as one of history's great warriors, and this book will immortalise him even more. A rip-roaring epic, filled with arrows and spattered with blood. Gird yourself with mail when you start.»

Paul Finch

«Ben's deeply authoritative depiction of the time is delivered in a deft manner. I was immersed in the detail of Rufus's life, with its heat and cold, its odours, foods, clothing, beasts, politics and all the other minutiae of the age.»

Simon Scarrow

«Kane's virtues as a writer of historical adventures - lively prose, thorough research, colourful action - are again apparent.»

Nick Rennison, THE SUNDAY TIMES

«Lionheart has plenty of betrayal, bloodshed and rich historical detail.»

Martin Chilton, INDEPENDENT

«

A fast-paced and thrilling read... it expertly examines what was a complex period in English history... a truly vibrant and
gripping read.

»

Helena Gumley-Mason, THE LADY

«The first book of what promises to be an exciting trilogy.»

CHOICE

«Plenty of action, blood, scheming, hatred, stealth and politics here, if that's what you want in your read - and you know it is!»

Jon Wise, SUNDAY SPORT, Books of the Year
