'Chadwick's historical grasp is secure and vivid in this punchy prequel to her last two FitzGilbert epics. Assailed by dangerous strategic and moral choices, FitzGilbert cuts an honourable, savvy and sympathetic figure in an absorbing narrative that canters along.' --The Financial Times

'It has everything - drama, intrigue, and those little emotional moments that make all the difference ... a good read.'  -- New Books

'Another wonderfully written, immensely moving and immaculately researched novel from an author who grows in stature with every book she writes.' -- Wigan Evening Post

'Jean Plaidy with sex! This is absolutely thrilling and historically illuminating. Brilliantly written, Chadwick is on great form. The battle scenes are terrific, the intrigue and plotting sensational. Great stuff.' -- Gateway Review
