Tyranny's Bloody Standard

The next book in J. D. Davies Philippe Kermorvant Thrillers, Tyranny's Bloody Standard is now available for pre-order in paperback and on Kindle. It will be released in the UK on 26 October 2023. This series is rare in that it is written from the French perspective.

After a daring escape from a British prison, Philippe Kermorvant returns to France and gains command of a frigate in the Mediterranean, where France is trying to rebuild its decimated fleet.

Facing overwhelming odds, the fleet is forced to flee for refuge to a fortified bay. The prospect of an interminable blockade looms, but Philippe is given leave from his command to meet an enigmatic young general, who has a mission for him.

What follows is a shocking murder, a siege, a whirlwind romance and a duel to the death on the high seas, as Philippe contends with threats from every side. And amidst all this chaos, a terrible face from his past threatens to uproot everything that he has built for himself.
