The author of the MASTERS OF THE SEA series, is back with a standalone battle book that will blow all others out of the water.
1587. Two nations are locked in bitter conflict. One strives for dominance, the other for survival.
After decades of religious strife, Elizabeth sits on the throne of England. The reformation continues. Catholic revolts have been ruthlessly quashed, and Elizabeth has ordered the execution of her cousin, Mary Queen of Scots.

Unknown to Varian, he will also be facing his long-estranged father, who is fighting on the side of the Spanish enemy…
