Son of the Morning by Mark Alder

sonofmorningMark Alder’s epic fantasy, the first in a new trilogy, is available from Gollancz (£18.99).

“In the 14th century, the nations of Europe rose up against each other. The Hundred Years War raged, and angels and demons stalked the earth.

Edward the Third stands in the burnt ruin of an English church. He is beset on all sides. He needs a victory against the French to rescue his Kingship. Or he will die trying.

Philip of Valois can put 50,000 men in the field. He has sent his priests to summon the very Angels themselves to fight for France. Edward could call on God for aid but he is a usurper. What if God truly is on the side of the French? But for a price, Edward could open the gates of Hell and take an unholy war to France…”
