Book 2 of the Clan Wars Book 1 of the Clan Wars

Now available at last in ebook format are Peter’s two prequels to his Horse Lords series. Now, of course the Horse Lords’ Book of Years purports to tell the true story behind the arrival of the Horse Lords in Alba. But as usual, when the victors write the histories, the truth has been known to suffer. Events that could prove embarrassing or even shameful to later generations get covered up, as do any suggestions that the heroic deeds of past generations might not have been so heroic after all…

Book 1, Greylady, begins to tell the real story of the arrival of the Horse Lords in the realm of Alba, and how they turned the Art Magic that they initially hated and feared into a terrible weapon that would first be used against the realms they conquered. It also tells of Bayrd al’Talvlyn, a young, landless and idealistic captain at the time of the Landing in Alba — and the distant ancestor of Aldric Talvalin — who suddenly finds himself catapulted into the murky political and magical maelstrom surrounding the subjugation of the native Albans. And in book 2, Widowmaker, the story continues into the time when the Art Magic begins to be turned to truly deadly purpose against the invaders from over sea. Bayrd al’Talvlyn struggles to preserve his new young clan from the enmity of the recently deposed sorcerer Kalarr cu Ruruc, while preserving his newly conquered land from those who want it, and those who want it back…

These books have been hard to find since they went out of print in the UK in the 1990s. They’ve never been in print in the US. But now they’re back. Greylady and Widowmaker are now available as ebooks in .mobi format (for the Kindle) and .ePub (for Sony Reader, Nook and the iPads and iPhones), joining the print editions of Widowmaker and Greylady presently available at

Yes, they’re my husband’s books. Know what? They’re hot. And I’m not just saying that because I married the guy. They’re worth reading. Please go buy some. 🙂 Thank you.

(BTW: for a limited time we’ll be offering a 20% discount on everything in the store to celebrate the prequels’ release! Use the discount code CLANWARS at checkout. Info on how to use our discount codes at the store is here.)
