More About the Author

Tony Riches was born in Pembrokeshire, West Wales, and spent part of his childhood in Kenya. He gained a BA degree in Psychology and an MBA from Cardiff University and worked as a Management Consultant, followed by senior roles in the Welsh NHS and Local Government.

After writing several successful non-fiction books, Tony decided to turn to novel writing and wrote 'Queen Sacrifice', set in 10th century Wales, followed by 'The Shell', a thriller set in present day Kenya. His real interest is in the history of the fifteenth century, and now his focus is on writing historical fiction about the lives of key figures of the period.

His novels 'Warwick ~ The Man Behind the Wars of the Roses' and 'The Secret Diary of Eleanor Cobham' have both become Amazon best sellers. He is now working on The Tudor Trilogy, book one of which is about Owen Tudor, the Welsh servant who married Queen Catherine of Valois and founded the Tudor Dynasty.

Today Tony has returned to Pembrokeshire, an area full of inspiration for his writing, where he lives with his wife. In his spare time he enjoys sailing and sea kayaking. Visit Tony online at www.tonyriches.co.uk, Tony Riches Author on Facebook and follow him on Twitter @tonyriches.

What a brilliant idea! A very readable story giving insight into all of the main characters in the battle for survival of North and South Wales. I was enthralled from beginning to end.
Even though the story stands in its own right, I found an added dimension by following the events alongside the actual Fisher Game of 1956. I enjoyed alternating between the game and determining what action would take place next in the story.
You don't need to be able to understand Chess to follow the story, but it is interesting how one game can be envisaged as a human battle for supremacy.

A very good book with a different twist to usual medieval times and from the Welsh point of view of the war between 2 welsh kings and the English King. Also tells how much the Welsh admired the females and their Queens.

A lot of characters with traditional Welsh names, which was a challenge to my short term memmory. But an interesting, original, easy to follow plot.

So much more could have been made of this. I found myself skipping some of the over long and confusing descriptive sections. The author seemed more interested in the battles and less interested in personalities
