Pawn in Frankincense (The Lymond Chronicles 4)

£8.99

Summer, 1551, and Francis Crawford of Lymond is in Malta to assist the Knights of St John defend the island from an invading Turkish fleet. But under a weak leader there is dissension in the ranks of the Knights – and the chances of repelling invasion look slim. Here Lymond meets Knight Grand Cross Graham Reid Malett – known as Gabriel – a fellow Scot famed for his virtues.

It is soon clear that Gabriel’s wiles in war and intrigue rival Lymond’s own as he attempts to bring his new comrade in arms into the bosom of his scheming. And if Gabriel should fail then his sister, Joleta, whose seductive charms no man can resist is waiting to prevail. Caught between warring factions and nations, between the wiles of Gabriel and the lascivious charms of Joleta, will Lymond prove strong enough to remain his own man?

Before George R. R. Martin there was Dorothy Dunnett . . . PERFECT for fans of A Game of Thrones.

‘She is a brilliant story teller, The Lymond Chronicles will keep you reading late into the night, desperate to know the fate of the characters you have come to care deeply about.’

The Times Literary SupplementPawn in Frankincense is the fourth book in the series

—————————–

‘It seems to me that on the whole we run more risks with Mr Crawford’s protection than without it . . .’

It is 1552 and the royal galley Dauphine, under the command of Francis Crawford of Lymond, sails the glittering but dangerous Mediterranean looking for a lost son.

Yet as the search grows more urgent, Lymond knows he is being drawn deeper into the intricate web of his enemy Gabriel, Knight Grand Cross of the Order of St John, who is already weaving a subtle tapestry of revenge. It is a journey that will lead Lymond to Constantinople and the court of Suleiman the Magnificent where a terrible game will be played with deadly and incalculable consequences . . .

‘Marvellous, breathtaking’ The Times

‘Melodrama of the most magnificent kind’ The Guardian
