Stewart Binns

The second blockbuster from the bestselling author of Conquest.

1072 - England is firmly under the heel of its new Norman rulers.

The few survivors of the English resistance look to Edgar the Atheling, the rightful heir to the English throne, to overthrow William the Conqueror. Years of intrigue and vicious civil war follow: brother against brother, family against family, friend against friend. In the face of chaos and death, Edgar and his allies form a secret brotherhood, pledging to fight for justice and freedom wherever they are denied. But soon they are called to fight for an even greater cause: the plight of the Holy Land. Embarking on the epic First Crusade to recapture Jerusalem, together they will participate in some of the cruellest battles the world has ever known, the savage Siege of Antioch and the brutal Fall of Jerusalem, and together they will fight to the death.

Stewart Binns' debut novel, Conquest, sold outstandingly well, with a total of 55,000 copies sold to date and one of the top 20 paperback debuts in the UK this year. He is also a successful documentary maker who began his career at the BBC. He has won a BAFTA and a Peabody for his documentaries.
