The Raven's Banquet
13 May 2014
Clifford Beal is to follow his critically-acclaimed English Civil War novel, Gideon’s Angel, with an ebook exclusive from Solaris – Raven’s Banquet!
Set in Germany in 1626, the hero of Gideon’s Angel – Richard Treadwell – returns to tell how his journey into the supernatural began. A special first Edition, limited to just 200 copies, will be available from the Forbidden Planet chain of stores.
As a young man he journeyed to Hamburg to seek his fortune as a mercenary with the Danish army in the vast war raging in Germany between the Catholic Hapsburg empire and the Protestant princes. But he brings with him an old secret that, as he descends into a horrific maelstrom of conflict and slaughter, quickly destroys his illusions of adventure, right and wrong, and good and evil.
Beal has created another heart-stopping adventure novel that blends historical reality with dark, supernatural intrigue, which will be released exclusively as an ebook from Solaris this May!
