It is 1855. The English revolt has failed, and brutal General Vadula governs England now. Only a few small bands of English rebels still hold out against the Rajthanan empire.
Jack Casey survives in remote Shropshire, training young rebels to use the conqueror's magic. But he is gravely ill, with only two months to live . . .

Then refugees bring with them news of a rogue Indian sorcerer in Scotland. Mahajan has discovered a mysterious power in the uncharted country to the north - a power that could be the legendary Holy Grail. The Rajthanans have already assembled an army to capture Mahajan. Jack has with nothing to lose now. He agrees to lead his own men, disguised as porters for the conquerors, on the same gruelling march.

Their hope is to find a weapon that will free England from her oppressors. But they will find something even more powerful.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This impressive debut fuses fantasy with alternate history, reversing the British Empire's conquest of India. Wilson's version of 19th-century England has been invaded and conquered by the Indian empire of Rajthana, which rules all of Europe with vast armies and a magical source known as sattva . . . The mix of Arthurian legend and Hindu mysticism make this breakneck-paced adventure a rich and engaging read.' * Publishers Weekly on Land of Hope and Glory *
'Sometimes you stumble upon a book that really draws you in. Time becomes meaningless and you put aside the real world just to finish the story. Land of Hope and Glory by Geoffrey Wilson was one of those books for me.' * Alternate History Weekly Update on LAND OF HOPE AND GLORY *
