New Book Release: The Cold Light of Dawn

Please join me in congratulating Anna Belfrage on the publication of her newest historical fiction novel, The Cold Light of Dawn, the fourth book in The King's Greatest Enemy series, which takes place during the tumultuous time when Edward III asserts his own power against his mother, Isabelle, and her lover, Roger Mortimer. I had the privilege of providing Anna with some copyediting assistance on this exciting and emotional tale of historical drama that brings to a close this chapter in Adam and Kit de Guirande's lives. (And yes, I did shed a few tears!) Here's the book description:

After Henry of Lancaster’s rebellion has been crushed early in 1329, a restless peace settles over England. However, the young Edward III is no longer content with being his regents’ puppet, no matter that neither Queen Isabella nor Roger Mortimer show any inclination to give up their power. Caught in between is Adam de Guirande, torn between his loyalty to the young king and that to his former lord, Roger Mortimer.

Edward III is growing up fast. No longer a boy to be manipulated, he resents the power of his mother, Queen Isabella, and Mortimer. His regents show little inclination of handing over their power to him, the rightful king, and Edward suspects they never will unless he forces their hand.

Adam de Guirande is first and foremost Edward’s man, and he too is of the opinion that the young king is capable of ruling on his own. But for Adam siding with his king causes heartache, as he still loves Roger Mortimer, the man who shaped him into who he is.

Inevitably, Edward and his regents march towards a final confrontation. And there is nothing Adam can do but pray and hope that somehow things will work out. Unfortunately, prayers don’t always help.

The Cold Light of Dawn is available now in ebook and print formats on Amazon. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and visit Anna's website for more information on all of her books, including the popular Graham Saga series.
