After a deadly duel with a jealous rival, Pierre de Siorac must travel to Paris, to seek his pardon from the King. In the capital city he finds a world of sweet words and fierce pride, where coquettish smiles hide behind fans, and murderous intents behind elegant bows. But the court's elaborate social graces mask a simmering tension that will soon explode to engulf the entire city. When it does, Pierre faces the greatest challenge of his young existence-not merely to win a royal pardon, but to escape from Paris with his life, and the lives of his beloved companions, intact.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Modern-day Dumas finally crosses the channel' - Observer

Swashbuckling historical fiction... For all its philosophical depth [The Brethren] is a hugely entertaining romp... The comparisons with Dumas seem both natural and deserved and the next 12 instalments [are] a thrilling prospect' - Christobel Kent, Guardian

'A sprawling, earthy tale of peril, love, lust, death, dazzling philosophical debate and political intrigue... an engrossing saga' - Gransnet

'Both wise and audacious, constantly nudging up against the extraordinary' - The New York Times Book Review

'A vivid novel by France's modern Dumas' - Sunday Times

'Spectacular' - Independent

'A lively adventure' - Daily Telegraph

'Cleverly depicts France's epic religious wars through the intimate prism of one family's experience. It's beautifully written too' - Metro
