Product Description

Product Description

The second and concluding part of G begins as Richard of Gloucester prepares for his coronation.

But what has befallen the two Princes in the Tower? And how secure is this new King Richard upon his throne, as powerful forces conspire against him?

Francis is now closer than ever to the centre of power, as the king's Lord Chamberlain, and still treading a dangerous path between loyalty and intrigue. But the time of peace may be short - across the Channel the pretender to the throne Henry Tudor bides his time, waiting for the moment to strike, and bloody insurrection is only a whisper away. Conspiracy, rebellion, disaster, and the final reckoning at Bosworth await.

Readers will find the true genesis of the Tudor regime exposed to the light of day, and the nature of their understanding of "truth" in the historical account challenged in this exciting and thought-provoking fictionalised version of the brief reign of Richard of Gloucester - the most reviled of English kings.

More About the Author

News : The concluding part of "G" is now available from Amazon Kindle.

News : the short story "The Defence of Wallachia" was shortlisted for the 2011 Bridport Prize. Included in the "California" collection, available from Amazon.

Christopher Rae was born in Glasgow, but having arrived in Yorkshire at the age of 5, after a detour via London, feels justified in claiming to be a native. A first degree in History from the University of Sussex was forgotten for a number of years while he pursued a career at the bleeding edge of information technology, but now provides the experience and knowledge behind the exhaustive research which underpins his writing.

Whether it is the 15th century, or the 17th, Christopher's writing seeks to evoke a sense of period which is both fascinating and compelling for the reader.

'To some people the attempt to "fill in the gaps in the sparsely chronicled past", as Schama described it, is folly. But for others it is an essential component of the civilised mind's struggle to understand the world, for if we cannot understand the past we can never hope to understand the present. These people understand very well the difference between a work of history and a work of historical fiction, but also understand the light that can be shed on the dry bones of the historical account by the judicious use of an imaginative hypothesis.'

Like the first book..G - Loyalty Binds Me, I was spellbound. In my imagination I was at the court of King Richard III and wished that his premature death could have been different. The thought of the York line continuing their rule rather than the Tudors is quite fascinating. G - God and My Right : a novel of King Richard III

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT 7 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I sipped this book, like a fine wine. Just enjoying the complexities and subtleties of the writing and I was rewarded with one the the most brilliant books in my collection. Christopher Rae is an excellent story teller. Infusing historical fact and modern day fiction into a corking read. He does not shy away from the more gruesome elements of that age where life was cheap, but instead faces you with it in such a manner that is acceptable to our genteel 21st Century stomachs. Would I recommend this book? Hell yes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterly 17 Dec 2012
By MH
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Chris Rae once again immerses the reader in the heady, chilling, visceral world of the Yorkist court with aplomb. At times brutal, touching, Machiavellian, and almost visionary, it also incorporates a marvellous twist and denouement. He perhaps chances with history - or at least our perceived history - here and there, but in the presented world of light and shade of the politics of the time, who is to know the truth? And more importantly, how much have things actually changed in the political world of today?

The use of Lovell as our 'eyes' on RIII is comparable with Nick Carraway observing the Great Gatsby - is RIII (the G or Gloucester of the title) the Sunne in Splendour or a clever schemer? And can we trust Lovell - or even our own reading of such? A little like the movie The Sting, infamous for its twists and turns, Mr Rae, a masterly writer, keeps us all guessing with immense style. A must buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars a novel of Richard III 25 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
this is written in the first person present tense, which I find difficult at times. The story went quite well until the end where the writer seemed unsure as to how to end it, first putting himself at the final battle with his King then in a monastery and finally arriving too late for the battle itself and then riding off and escaping. It became very confusing and a bit annoying.

I had hoped for more of the thoughts of this much maligned King.
It was an interesting read.
