The chronicles continue. What volume VI will reveal is beginning to take shape.
If you’ve found your way here, you must be a reader. And it’s pretty likely you appreciate good story-telling in a historical setting. You may also have a fondness for a well-crafted costume drama. The Second Son Chronicles offer all that and more.
It is the dawn of the Renaissance in a land ruled by an enlightened monarch. Alfred — the eponymous second son — is convinced that his life will be unremarkable, spent in diligent but mundane service to his king. His grandfather, however, foresees for him a special destiny, though that destiny is shrouded in mystery. These novels tell Alfred’s story.
Each book is a complete story unto itself. As a reader, you may begin wherever you like. But you may find it most rewarding to meet Alfred at the beginning, when he is growing up and coming of age at his grandfather’s court.
