1653. Naive Royalists plot the downfall of Oliver Cromwell. But only one man knows the true enemy isn’t the Lord Protector – not when Satan is after the throne of England.
The English Civil War has ended with Cromwell now king in all but name. Many want him dead, including exiled royal officer, Richard Treadwell. But when the soldier-for-hire returns to England, he uncovers another plot to assassinate Cromwell that could bring a very different monarch to the throne – Satan himself!
Treadwell must choose between avenging the family and fortune stolen from him and the future of his country – because in order to save England from the Devil, he is going to have to save Cromwell.
Not to mention convincing a certain musketeer by the name of d’Artagnan that he should help him rather than drag him back to his would-be masters in France.
With gorgeous alternate covers for the UK (above top) and North America, demons, religion, magic, Freemasons, and Ranters all tangle together in this bloody historical adventure that requires an old Cavalier to save the English throne from the Lord of Hell!
“Splendid... Seventeenth-century Britain in all its sweaty, superstitious,
blood-soaked savagery, with the bonus of added demons.”
– New York Times bestselling author James Lovegrove
