Product description

About the Author

Author of the best selling Du Lac Chronicles series.

Born in Bath, England, Mary Anne Yarde grew up in the southwest of England, surrounded and influenced by centuries of history and mythology. Glastonbury--the fabled Isle of Avalon--was a mere fifteen-minute drive from her home, and tales of King Arthur and his knights were part of her childhood.

At nineteen, Yarde married her childhood sweetheart and began a bachelor of arts in history at Cardiff University, only to have her studies interrupted by the arrival of her first child. She would later return to higher education, studying equine science at Warwickshire College. Horses and history remain two of her major passions.

Yarde keeps busy raising four children and helping run a successful family business. She has many skills but has never mastered cooking--so if you ever drop by, she (and her family) would appreciate some tasty treats or a meal out!

The novel is a wonderful mix of political intrigue, warring kingdoms, a love triangle as two women vie for the attention of one of the Du Lac brothers and larger than life, yet vulnerable, characters.
Although I’m not a keen fan of tales of the Arthurian era, this story gripped me from the beginning and I didn’t find it difficult to keep reading. As the author develops the intricate plot, she also gives the reader glimpses into the thoughts and motivations of several key players. It was fascinating to see how they danced around each other, plotting and scheming. The character I found most memorable was Merton, one of the Du Lac brothers. Considered the black sheep of the family, the author reveals him as a complex character with a multi-layered personality, a fearsome warrior and vulnerable man. I could easily believe he was a real man and immediately empathised with him.
The author’s skilled descriptions arouse all the reader’s senses, bringing to life the place, the people and the plot. I highly recommend this novel to readers who enjoy historical fiction, as well as anyone who enjoys a good read.

The feisty Du Lac brothers are reunited at the old family home in Brittany - what could possibly go wrong? Well, quite a lot actually. For a start, author Mary Anne Yarde has a liking for deeply flawed characters. Secondly, you need to be thinking George R.R. Martin rather than Sir Thomas Malory. Chivalry is hanging in by its fingernails and treachery is in the air.

Book two of the Du Lac Chronicles would work perfectly well as a stand-alone novel but to really understand the complex web of relationships I recommend starting with the first book. You also need to keep your wits about you, as a fast pace is achieved with short chapters and plenty of action.

I don’t want to include any ‘spoilers’ but at one point I was reminded of those TV programmes that begin with a warning viewers might find some scenes disturbing. There are also tantalising glimpses of the Arthurian back-story, which I’d really like to hear more of – perhaps a ‘prequel’ to the chronicles?

The Du Lac Devil is Mary Anne Yarde at her best – and I’m really looking forward to the next one. Five out of five stars.

Recommend to fans of historical fiction but suggest reading the first book in the series beforehand (which I highly recommend).
Phew Yarde really puts the Du Lac brothers through the wringer! Betrayal by people they once trusted, false assumptions revealed, love complications and a ghost from the past. This book puts Merton, the youngest brother at the centre of the story along with ever changing allignments between powerful men along with changes of army loyalties. Merton's close friends remain close, although they are not always who they appear to be. All this makes for an intriguing if sometimes complicated story.
I really appreciated the short note at the end clarifying which characters were real or fictional and giving details of the main books used when researching the story. The book certainly brings the era of history to life in a lively and vivid way.

This was a riveting read from the start and I quickly became immersed in the story which concentrates on Merton, the mercenary brother, dubbed the ‘Du Lac devil’ which in Saxon Briton would have instilled fear in the hearts of friends and enemies alike.
The characters and settings were realistic, beautifully drawn, and I could picture everything as events took place. Action packed and full of intrigue, the story progressed at a fast face with a few shockers along the way. I was swept along in the roller coaster of events that culminated in a nail-biting finale.
I cycled through a huge range of emotions, mainly whilst willing Merton to be ‘saved’ – in a variety of ways – and for justice to triumph with many of the characters.
Even without the cliffhanger ending, I wouldn’t dare miss further instalments in the Du Lac saga.

I have read and really enjoyed the previous two novels in The Du Lac Chronicles which are about the sons of Lancelot and so got ‘The Du Lac Devil’ on pre-order, when I knew it was being published. This novel centres on the youngest of the Du Lac brothers, Merton, who has become a mercenary trying to earn enough money to keep Alden’s enemy Cerdic of Wessex from invading Cerniw. I won’t spoil this excellent book for readers, which is a fast-paced historical adventure as well as a tale of jealousies and revenge. The book illustrates very clearly the dark consequences of when revenge becomes achievable, for a spurned lover and a bitter enemy. A great book and the best yet I think of the Du Lac Chronicles. Well done Mary Anne Yarde, I look forward to the next in the series.

I loved the first book in this series and was eagerly looking forward to reading this second book. I wasn't disappointed! This is a fantastic read if like me you enjoy Arthurian legends with a sprinkle of realism. There is war, intrigue, love, treachery and revenge mixed up in a story of the Du Lac brothers and their families. The author transports you back in time and has you turning the pages desperate to find out what happens next! There is plenty of action and violence but there is just as much romance and scheming to provide a balanced read that should appeal to a wide audience. This would make an excellent TV series!
