Product description

Review

Combining the best elements of a spy thriller, heroic fantasy and Elizabethan mystery, Chadbourn deftly mixes gruesome brutality, a shadowy world of plots and counter-plots and a vivid cast of characters...creates an alternate reality as tangible and authentic as the history we think we know...In a year of outstanding fantasies, The Sword of Albion may just be one of the best so far. ― Monsters and Critics

Gets off to a smashing start. The historical detail sets a believable backdrop, and the main character, a spy, could pass for a fantastical James Bond. Chadbourn sets a fast pace, pitting his characters against supernatural threats with a bit of horror thrown in. ― RT Book Reviews

Smart, fun, at times surprisingly moving, and occasionally downright shocking...impossible to put down. ― Realms of Fantasy magazine --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Back Cover

1588: as the Spanish Armada prepares to sail, rumours abound of a doomsday device that, were it to fall into enemy hands, could destroy England and her bastard queen Elizabeth once and for all.



Enter Will Swyfte.



He is one of Walsingham's new breed of spy and his swashbuckling exploits have made him famous throughout Europe. But how can a man so celebrated be an effective secret agent? In truth, Swyfte's public image is a carefully nurtured facade to give the people of England a hero in their hour of need - and to deflect attention from his real role. For Will is at the forefront of a hidden war against an enemy infinitely more devilish than Spain...



For millennia the Faerie and its Unseelie Court have preyed upon human kind, treating honest folk as little more than playthings to be hunted, taken and tormented. But now England is fighting back. Armed with little more than courage, their wits and an array of cunning gadgets created by sorcerer Dr John Dee, Will and his colleagues must secure this mysterious weapon before it is too late.



Theirs is a deadly game played out in a shadowy world of plot and counter-plot, deception and desolation, where no one - and nothing - is quite what they seem. At stake is the very survival of queen and country...

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

A two-time winner of the prestigious British Fantasy Award, Mark has published his epic, imaginative novels in many countries around the world. He grew up in the mining community of the English Midlands, and was the first person in his family to go to university. After studying Economic History at Leeds, he became a successful journalist, writing for several of the UK's renowned national newspapers as well as contributing to magazines and TV.

When his first short story won Fear magazine's Best New Author award, he was snapped up by an agent and subsequently published his first novel, Underground, a supernatural thriller set in the coalfields of his youth. Quitting journalism to become a full-time author, he has written stories which have transcended genre boundaries, but is perhaps best known in the fantasy field.

Mark has also forged a parallel career as a screenwriter with many hours of produced work for British television. He is a senior writer for BBC Drama, and is also developing new shows for the UK and US.

An expert on British folklore and mythology, he has held several varied and colourful jobs, including independent record company boss, band manager, production line worker, engineer's 'mate', and media consultant.

Having travelled extensively around the world, he has now settled in a rambling house in the middle of a forest not far from where he was born.
