A fascinating attempt to adopt an alternative history model of the Gunpowder Plot. Starts in present times, a little awkwardly. Began to have doubts about this novel, but once the tale began to regress to 1605, the novel really began to pick up and started to appreciate it.
The author has a skill at scene setting, the portrayal of London and the surrounding countryside is superb. James IV and 1, Anne of Denmark , Robert Cecil, the Gunpowder plotters , are all featured along with some fictional c

A quote from the Discovering Diamonds Review Blog : 'Well written and engaging, the only character who threatens to become a caricature is King James himself, but he is the least sympathetic character in the novel and the almost cartoonish treatment suits him. Robert Cecil undergoes a transformation that is almost – almost – not credible, but I believe the author wished to redeem him and I think he does this fairly successfully. The novel feels right, the detail of the setting is believable, and ...more
Tony Morgan's debut novel retells the events that took place 412 years ago, at the beginning of November 1605, when English Catholics, Robert Catesby, Guy Fawkes and their co-conspirators planned to blow up England's Houses of Parliament along with the King, James I, who was also James VI of Scotland.

I don't read novels with alternate endings to what actually ha

History Brought to Life

A great historical novel about the Gunpowder Plot, which brings history alive and makes it relevant to the world today.

This riveting book takes the reader right into the world of 1605 London, portraying through interesting characters what it was like to live there at that time. The background to James I becoming king is woven into the story, along with how and why the plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament, with the king inside, was planned. All told from the various vie

Although set in 1605 the parallels in this book with the modern day are uncanny. Many of the real-life figures in the gunpowder plot, such as Guy Fawkes, are familiar but the use of fictional characters and the counter-factual ending, as the title sugests, creates an exciting thriller with many twists and turns involving religious intolerance, terrorism and espionage. A surprising number of events in the book actually happened so the section at the end that separates fact from fiction is really ...more
