Devil's Charge, the second 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', fight for his honour. 'Stands in comparison with the best of Cornwell' Yorkshire Post


England stands divided: king against Parliament, town against country, brother against brother.

For Captain Stryker, scarred hero of a dozen wars, the rights and wrongs of the cause mean little. His loyalties are to his own small band of comrades - and to Queen Henrietta Maria's beautiful and most deadly agent, Lisette Gaillard. So when Prince Rupert entrusts him with a secret mission to discover what has happened to Lisette and the man she was protecting - a man who could hold the key to Royalist victory - nothing, not false imprisonment for murder, ambush, a doomed siege or a lethal religious fanatic will stand in his way.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Fans of Cornwell's Sharpe novels will love Captain Innocent Stryker - he's uglier, meaner and cleverer than Sharpe. Tremendous! - Ben Kane

A dark-hued romp, livid with the scents, sounds and colours of a country on the brink of implosion ... impressive. - Daily Express

Michael Arnold's Devil's Charge featuring the battle-hardened English civil war veteran Captain Stryker, skilfully blends the author's own inventions with the real events of 1643. - Sunday Times, Historical Fiction Books of the Year
