A little more here:-
1592. Robert Carey, eighth son of Lord Hunsdon, has, to his servants’ dismay, abandoned Queen Elizabeth I’s court and is heading north to take up the post of Deputy Warden of the English West March.
The Border Marches are lawless badlands, peopled by cattle-rustlers, horse-thieves, arsonists, kidnappers and murderers. Spawned of centuries of Anglo-Scottish conflict, they are a festering sore that breeds treason and rebellion, threatening the fragile stability of Elizabeth I’s realm. With just a handful of horseman and a taciturn sergeant with a dark past, Carey, in his lace-collared, pearl-sashed courtly finery, will be expected to bring order to this bloody flux.
Plunging readers straight into the raucous world of late-sixteenth century border reivers and unfettered Elizabethan intrigue, Guns in the North is a historical fiction high-water mark and the first chronicle of Sir Robert Carey’s adventures, collecting the novels A Famine of Horses, A Season of Knives and A Surfeit of Guns under one volume.
