Token of Betrayal is the first book in the Roses & Rebels series by C.V. Lee. In the year 1461, the French forces captured Mont Orgueil, leaving Sir Philippe de Carteret of the Isle of Jersey with little choice but to acquiesce to the French to protect his family and the common folk. However, de Carteret still remains loyal to King Edward of England, hoping to turn the tide against the French one day. But as the atrocities by the invaders increase with the years, rebellion brews strongly amongst the Jersey residents. The arrival of the English pirate John Hareford complicates matters further as de Carteret refuses to put his trust in the heinous man. As his friends and allies fall victim to the French, will de Carteret be able to save his family and legacy?
Set during the War of the Roses, Token of Betrayal is an enthralling historical fiction novel you shouldn't miss out on. Author C.V. Lee incorporates actual historical events and personages into this fascinating tale of war, betrayal, and rebellion that keeps you hooked from the first page to the last. The narrative is filled with political intrigue, suspense, and medieval warfare. Imagine A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin without the fantastical elements, and you will get something like this. Every character has an agency that drives their motives and actions, and it makes for some compelling character drama that is delicious to consume. Overall, a genuine treat for history buffs and medieval warfare aficionados.
