Angus Donald is a proper story-teller and Blood's Game is a full-throated adventure following a flesh and blood cast of engaging characters as they cross and double-cross each other around a convincingly-depicted Restoration London * S. G. MacLean * He [Angus Donald] brings the story to a very satisfying and tense conclusion, in a book with action and humour aplenty, setting the scene for what i feel will be a truly excellent series in the future . . . book two cannot come soon enough for me. Bravo Angus . . . loved this book * Parmenion Books * A stand-out historical adventure . . . Marvellous characters and a thrilling plot as the interests of father and son collide * The Times, review in Best Historical Fiction of the Year * This entertaining adventure is populated by some of the most celebrated personalities of the day * Daily Express * Donald relates the adventures of the two Bloods with relish. Both characters are instantly engaging - the reprobate Blood and the bemused Holcroft. This tale is ideal for fans of historical adventure * Sunday Times * Blood's Game is a thoroughly entertaining historical romp, packed full of some brilliantly colourful characters. Holcroft Blood is such a strong character and his future is an exciting one and I can't wait to follow it as he takes us away from the court of Charles II and onto the battlefield * For Winter Nights * Angus Donald kicked off a new series with the utterly delicious Blood's Game - the adventures of a young and peculiar hero in the court of Charles II. * The History Girls, included in the books of the year roundup * A hugely entertaining historical adventure that simply thrums with life. * Blood's Game *
