Overview

When the cut from the blade runs deep - You need a heart of Stone

In 1370 two families are thrust together by the harsh realities of war. Lady d’Aubray holds Sarbrook castle, but has sold nearly everything to pay the ransom of her husband, who was captured in France over a decade ago. Eolande d’Aubray, the missing lord’s daughter, is desperate for her father to return. She remembers little of him, but she does know that he is the only man who can rescue her from an unwanted marriage.

William Stone has bought much of the d’Aubray estate having made a fortune as a cloth merchant, and is looking forward to seeing his two sons move up in the world. For his eldest, Richard, he hopes to make squire to Sir Robert Knolles, commander of the English army set to invade France this summer, as long as he can pay the consideration demanded by Knolles. But when Knolles and his ambitious captain, Minsterworth, visit the Stone’s to agree their terms, a tragic series of events destroys the Stone’s world forever.

For Richard Stone there is only one place to find peace.

In war.

By The Sword’s Edge is the first volume of Stonehearted, a serialized novel.

Meet the Author

I am a UK based writer, living in the southeast of England. I mostly write historical fiction and fantasy, although I also have been known to write a bit of Science Fiction now and again.

My favourite authors include Gene Wolfe, Ursula le Guin and Iain Banks, and I'm currently getting into Dan Simmons and Neal Stephenson. Outside SF&F I enjoy the thrillers of Robert Harris and I love Tolstoy's War and Peace.

I am also the Editor of Alt Hist, the new magazine of Historical Fiction and Alternate History.

My reading tastes, I think, are fairly broad. I like Gene Wolfe, Leo Tolstoy, Ursula le Guin and Iain Banks in particular, and I’m currently getting into Dan Simmons and Neal Stephenson.

    Too short to bother

    40 pages? Not worth investing myself for that. Sorry.
