Publisher's Summary

During the Wars of the Roses, peace never lasts.... 

It is 1464. Ned Elder and his two sisters, Emma and Eleanor, have won a hard-fought peace and their feud with the Radcliffes seems long over, but one man never accepted the outcome. After three bitter years of waiting to destroy the Elders, a new ally provides him with a fresh opportunity for revenge. 

When Ned is summoned to confront a Lancastrian revolt by the new king, Edward of York, he finds his enemies are not just amongst the ranks of the rebels. Branded a traitor by his own commander, the Earl of Warwick, Ned is soon a wanted man in hostile territory and the price on his head only rises when he stumbles upon a royal secret. 

Meanwhile, Eleanor and Emma watch over Ned’s pregnant wife, Amelie, with only a small garrison of old men and boys to protect them. The feud may have ended, but the scars run deep for all three women and they must hold their nerve and prepare to defend themselves at any cost. A condemned man, Ned must find a way to escape his pursuers or else the whole Elder family will be destroyed.

Another great one

Really enjoyed Feud, and wasted no time in downloading the sequel. I was not disappointed. The plot and character development were first-rate. The author clearly invested a great deal of time into his research, which makes it easy for the reader to feel like he or she is being transported back to that historical setting. Mike Rogers is one of my favorite narrators, and his reading of this book was top-notch. I can't wait for the next installment.

Great 2nd instalment

As with the 1st book in the series, Fued, it is action from start to finish. Really enjoyed the story and the characters, and look forward to see what happens next for Ned Elder and his family. Bring on the next book!!

“You don’t have to be an evil man to do evil”

Packed with action, heroism and brimming over with intrigue, mystery and foul play! Really well written and great characters! The dark story and bad luck that the MC experiences makes for a frustratingly great story! Well narrated by Mike, who really gives the characters life and has great pacing and atmosphere. The female voices could be improved slightly, but not enough to lower the enjoyment, but his accents are great. Thoroughly enjoyed it and I really hope more get released soon! This is my honest opinion on a free review copy.

Fabulous 2nd instalment in the series

I was really gripped by this book. The pace really rattles on but the action is is easy to follow and the research is worn lightly. There's a great filmic quality to some of the scenes and I could see this making a TV series! The narration was spot on again - each character distinct and brought to life. You really feel you're living through tough times -in a good way!! Hopefully wont have to wait long for the next one!
