For fans of Conn Iggulden and Bernard Cornwell, a pulse-racing and dramatic new thriller from Sunday Times bestselling author James Jackson about the founding of America's first colony. American was born in blood. 1607. With King James on the throne, thousands of miles away, in Virginia, the English have established Jamestown, a tiny foothold on a vast, untamed continent and a powerful symbol of their colonial ambition. But trouble is stirring. The settlement has the support of Prince Henry, but is despised by his jealous father, the King, who seeks to destroy it. Meanwhile, a ship arrives, harbouring Hardy's arch-enemy: the deadly renegade Realm. The battle for America has begun . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
I want to start this review by saying that this book is probably the best I've read this year. The action is second to none and the violence is on par with what you expect from this era of history. Overall I loved this book and I will be buying all the preceding novels at the earliest opportunity * Two Bald Mages *
Treason is a compelling read and extremely difficult to put down * For Winter Nights blog *
Immaculately researched and teeming with suspense, malice and menace, this is an impressive portrait of the suspicion and intrigue that stalked the early years of James I's reign as well as a thrilling adventure story that will keep readers on their toes from first page to last * Lancashire Evening Post *
I enjoyed reading about this period in English history (...) I have never read a book specifically on James I, but aim to in the new year (...) The storyline is a plus (...) and the character Christian Hardy is a plus * Impressions in Ink blog *

“17th Century Adventure in Jamestown”

This rollicking read is set mainly in Jamestown back in 1607 in what subsequently became part of the United States of America. It is no surprise that the native population of the land at that time do not welcome the... More
