In England, the Wars of the Roses ended a decade ago with the fall of the House of Lancaster and the victory of King Edward of York. But peace sleeps uneasy in this divided realm and when the king dies unexpectedly it isn’t long before old blood feuds and ambitions are awoken.
In the sun-baked city of Seville, unaware of the clouds of war rising over England, Jack Wynter is cursing his fortune. Sent here by his secretive father, king’s man, Sir Thomas Vaughan – with a locked chest he has been ordered to guard with his life – Jack wonders if this mission was simply a ruse to get an illegitimate, inconvenient son out of the country. But when a stranger arrives with news that his father has been arrested for treason, Jack finds himself thrust into the heart of a deadly conspiracy.
What is the secret Jack has been guarding? Is it the reason for his father’s fall? The only place he is going to find answers is back in England, where young Prince Edward is due to become king… unless his uncle Richard, Duke of Gloucester, decides to make a move for the throne. It is also where Jack’s half-brother, Harry, broods bitterly over their father’s apparent preference for a bastard son.
Jack Wynter is coming home, to a realm of intrigue and corruption, mystery and war. Somehow, he is connected to a secret that can kill him – or make him. Its influence spans Europe and will draw him towards the very edge of the known world, and beyond, in Robyn Young’s dazzling new epic.
The old world is turning.
A new world is rising.
Praise for the New World Rising
Young’s ability to conjure historical settings is reliably strong . . . fans of her work and historical adventure generally will love it. The action is well done and the characters’ adventures entertain.
The first novel in a new series by Robyn Young, and this in itself is a cause for celebration. Robyn Young is one of the finest writers I’ve read in recent years. Her prose is beautiful, her historical fiction enriched by meticulous research and great empathy for its characters.
