Ten years after the fall of Babylon, Cyrus's army is on the march again. His slave Croesus, no longer a young man, accompanies him as always, as does the king's son and heir Cambyses, who has inherited none of his father's diplomacy or charisma and all of his vanity and violence. When the warriors of Persia are unexpectedly crushed in battle Cyrus is put to death, and Cambyses assumes the throne. Croesus, once a king himself, is called upon to guide the young man; but the young man cannot be guided, and after taking offence at an insult by an Egyptian ruler, Cambyses takes the full force of his father's empire to Africa for bloody and brutal vengeance...

'Borman's expertise as a historian of the period is much in evidence throughout a lively, entertaining novel' The Sunday Times 'So vividly evoked that you are there' Alison Weir 'Rich evocation of 17th-century life' The Times *** Frances Gorges has already survived the accusation of witchcraft. But if her torturers at the court of King James knew of her love for Tom Wintour, one of the executed members of the gunpowder plot, it would mean certain death. Pregnant with Tom's child, hiding under the reluctant protection of her spiteful and ambitious brother, Frances lives in fear - until she is offered the chance to make a respectable - if loveless - marriage and return to court. She will not be expected to sleep with her husband. The only price she must pay for safety is to give up the cause for which her lover died. But old loyalties are hard to deny, and soon Frances is drawn back into the snake-pit scheming of the factions trying to take the throne. Everywhere she turns, it seems that someone has the power to force her deeper into danger until, all too late, Frances hears the warnings of her own heart. Compelling, sensual, suspenseful, The Devil's Slave is a standalone sequel to The King's Witch and further evidence that one of our finest historians is also a brilliant novelist. *** Praise for The King's Witch: 'The adventures of her courageous heroine put flesh on the bones of a fascinating historical framework'Sunday Mirror 'Tracy Borman's debut historical novel has it all: conspiracy, betrayal, dark intrigues, bloody deeds, a poignant love story - and the most famous plot in English history' Alison Weir, author of the Six Tudor Queens series 'An accomplished novel with a vivid historical setting . . . the scenes in which Frances defends herself against accusations of witchcraft are particularly strong' The Times

"More than a century ago, one man with deep convictions and a country with benign ideals combined to create a place where black self-emancipation, black freedom, could flourish. The man was William King, a slaveowner and Presbyterian minister educated to the stern moralities of Edinburgh. The country was Canada and Look to the North Star is a vivid account of Buxton, the community in western Ontario which the Reverend Mr. King and his slaves founded in 1849 as a haven for black fugitives, both slave and free, in the harsh years before the Civil War."--Jacket.

In this poignant and mythical historical novel, author Ola Osibodu sheds light on the atrocities of the transatlantic slave trade. While much ink has been spilled about the consequences of slavery, most books published have been by Western authors. Not many have told the story of slavery from an African perspective. Here, Osibodu merges American history with African culture to create a dense, compelling tale of destiny, rebellion, and courage. Set in the late 1700s, Kings and Not Slaves provides an Afrocentric perspective of the cruelties of plantation life. Osibodu's hero is Prince Tsangu, African royalty, the heir presumptive to his father's West African kingdom. But tribal conflict leads the prince to be captured by slavers and shipped to Suffolk, Virginia. Renamed King by his captors, Tsangu longs for home. Through his eyes, readers are given an intimate view of the horrors of slave life. Not only must King find a way to survive in unimaginable conditions, but he must also unravel the mystery of a curious prophecy that could spell out his doom. Steeped in African mythology, Kings and Not Slaves is an essential new read for students of history, folklore, and human rights.
