Publisher's Summary

The year after defeating the Spanish Armada, England retaliates. The expedition to Portugal sets out to destroy what remains of Spain's Atlantic fleet, drive the Spanish out of Portugal, put the claimant Dom Antonio of Aviz on the throne, and seize the Azores. But from the time the English fleet, led by Drake and Norreys, reaches Plymouth, things start to go wrong. Christoval Alvarez, sent to carry out two missions by Walsingham, has a more important private plan in mind. Are any members of the family still alive? And what will become of the disaster-ridden expedition?

    "A bleak and disturbing tale, very dark"

    While I am a fan of Ann Swinfen and have enjoyed other books in this series and in her other series about medieval England, I found the raw and disturbing descriptions of warfare and suffering too much to bear and had to skip large sections. I do not doubt the historical accuracy of the events described but I did not enjoy the book and cannot recommend it.

    "A Let Down"

    Not as interetsting as other books in series. Hard to follow and depressing. Not as believable as others.
