Viper’s Blood by David Gilman

Edward III has invaded France at the head of the greatest host England has ever assembled.  But his attempt to win the French crown is futile.  The Dauphin will no longer meet the English in the field and the great army is mired in costly sieges, scavenging supplies from a land ruined by decades of conflict.

Facing a stalemate – or worse – the English are forced to agree a treaty.  But peace comes at a price.  The French request that Blackstone escort their King’s daughter to Italy to see her married to one of the two brothers who rule Milan – the same brothers who killed Blackstone’s family to revenge the defeats he inflicted on them.  Blackstone, the French are certain, will never leave Milan alive…

Peer & Press Reviews

The fourth novel in David Gilman’s powerful and uncompromising chronicle of the Hundred Years War… Viper’s Blood an exciting, bloody and well-written tale of Europe at a time of terrible crisis…  A fine addition to a series that continues to bring these cruel years to life in such rich and meticulous detail.

For Winter Nights

Book Four in the Master of War series and the bone-crunching intensity of this series shows no signs of abating…  As ever David Gilman provides us with a well-researched book set right in the heart of the action of 1300’s war-torn Europe…  With Gilman's writing, you can feel the ooze of the mud, the bite of the cold, most of all you can feel the weight of the sword and armour, the draw and weight of the bow and the rushing death of the arrow storm and the disregard of mortality.  But if you mistake this book and series for just the hack of the sword you would be missing out on so much more depth…  A truly excellent book and part of an excellent series.
