Our newest title!!

Children of the Red King
by Madeleine Polland

Now available!!

This was Mrs. Polland's first novel for children, and it is excellent! In her usual beautiful storytelling style (City of the Golden House, Beorn the Proud, Chuiraquimba and the Black Robes), she tells the story of the last Irish chieftain to hold out against King John and the English conquest of Ireland. While his children are held captive by a Norman knight, Cormac of Connacht battles to keep the land free and retain his kingship against conspirators.

Exciting historical fiction set in early 13th century Ireland.

Cover art by Sean Fitzpatrick; cover design by Ted Schluenderfritz.
