Giveaway: Three copies of The Brethren by Robert Merle to be won!

16 Jun

Today, lovely publisher Pushkin Press has given me three copies of Robert Merle’s The Brethren to give away to lucky readers. The Brethren is first book in the thirteen-book Fortunes of France series of which more than 5 million copies have sold worldwide to date.



Consisting of 13 books written across 26 years, the adventure-filled epic Fortunes of France is one of France’s best-loved historical fiction series. The Brethren is the first installment.

Two veteran soldiers retire to a castle in the wildly beautiful Périgord of sixteenth century France. But the country is descending into chaos, plagued by religious strife, famine, pestilence, bands of robbers… and, of course, the English.

A sprawling, earthy tale of violence and lust, love and death, political intrigue and dazzling philosophical debate, The Brethren is the first step in an engrossing saga to rival Dumas, Flashman and Game of Thrones.

The second book in the Fortunes of France series, City of Wisdom and Blood, will be published in September 2015.

This would make a great gift for Fathers Day! To enter this giveaway just leave a comment in the box below and I’ll draw three winners using after the closing date.

This giveaway is open to UK residents only and will close at midnight on Saturday 20th June.

Good luck!

    Wow, this sounds great – I’m a huge fan of modern takes on the Dumas era. That cover is so nice too. (Most of Pushkin’s are enviably beautiful!)
