Warlord's Gold

Warlord's Gold

Warlord’s Gold, the fifth novel in The Civil War Chronicles, Michael Arnold’s acclaimed series of historical thrillers, sees battle-scarred hero, Captain Stryker, ‘the Sharpe of the Civil War’ on a quest to recover lost treasure.

Autumn,1643. As an increasingly bitter war rages across England, Captain Innocent Stryker leaves Oxford with orders to recover a lost treasure, vital to the success of the Royalist cause. But a seemingly simple mission to the remote Scilly Isles is soon jeopardised, for enemies lie in wait. A formidable Parliamentarian agent has been sent ahead of Stryker’s force, intent on defeating Royalist plans. Feared by ally and enemy alike, he is a man whose determination is only matched by his hatred for Stryker.

The quest for the gold takes Stryker across storm-ravaged seas, through enemy territory and finally to the Royalist stronghold of Basing House. And it is there that Stryker will face his most dangerous challenge yet.

Historical Novels Review
If you love historical fiction and want kickass action, solid plot lines and, of course, danger coming from every direction, then you really have to read Michael Arnold. He has a great way of bringing the English Civil War to life as well as blending historical fact into the tale to help give it an extra edge. Back this up with great prose, magical pace and . . . a lead character that you just love to spend time around, makes this a series that is not only a pure joy to read but a wonderful piece of escapism from the real world. Great stuff.
