InvasioneBook - 2015
Note that this is the sixth novel in The Pistoleer series. INVASIONIn the winter of 1642/43, while King Charles was hiding in Oxford, his wife Henrietta was in The Hague pawning the English crown jewels, buying an army, and chartering ships to invade England. Two of the leading Reformers, Admiral Rich and Colonel Waller, moved quickly to secure all of the ports along the south coast. Denied the south coast, the invasion convoy sailed up the North Sea coast. They were first spotted off the coast of Lowestoft by the crew of a small patrol ship. The crew included Daniel Vanderus, his clansmen, and a dragoon captain named Robert Blake. About The Author Skye Smith is my pen name. In 1630 some of my Manchester Puritan ancestors sailed away to Massachusetts on one of Robert Rich's ships. The Pistoleer is a series of historical adventure novels set in Britain in the 1640's. I was encouraged to write them by fans of my Hoodsman series. This is the sixth of the series, and you should read at least the first novel 'Hell Burner' before you read 'Invasion' because it sets the characters and scene for the entire series. The sequence of the books follows the timeline of the Republic of Great Britain. The chapter headings identify the dates and places.--Provided by publisher.
