Peter Ransley

Reviews of The King’s List

  • Praise for Plague Child:

    ‘Tom’s search for his own identity is intimately connected with the seismic events tearing England apart in the 1640s. Ransley has a talent for melding dramatic historical detail with a strong story that could well give C. J. Sansom a run for his money.’ Spectator

    ‘A gripping coming-of-age story…an enthralling mystery adventure.’ Radio Times

    ‘There are some cracking [historical] writers out there. And Peter Ransley is certainly worthy of a place at the top…a great tale that would sit well on the screen… Ransley conveys not only the action, but also the self-doubt and blundering of a poorly-trained army daring to challenge its king… If [the] second book] is as good as this one, then we are in for a real treat.’ Eastern Daily Press

    Praise for Cromwell’s Blessing:

    ‘An intelligent and imaginative tale of a pivotal year in English history.’ Sunday Times
