A Quest For Truth In An Age Of Darkness
The Mab’s Cross Trilogy is an epic love story set in the 14th Century. Society was in upheaval. Magna Carta had awakened the promise of human rights, the Roman Church was crumbling from within, famine ravaged the land, the French king hijacked the Holy See to Avignon and annihilated the Knights Templar, a band of starving Scots humiliated the English at Bannockburn, and Edward II died in a Welsh dungeon. In the lawless marchlands of Lancashire, Sir William Bradshaw and his Lady Mab refused to surrender their dreams to the chaos, and their love for each other created a legend that will not die. The ruins of the cross that bears Mab’s name can still be seen on the Standishgate in Wigan, Lancashire. After 700 years, it remains as a humble tribute to a noble dream. The story of that cross reveals a world torn by tyranny and rebellion, faith and betrayal, hot-blooded chivalry and cold-blooded murder; and yet it also celebrates the rebirth of Reason after a thousand years of darkness.
Deftly constructed at 336 pages, Mab's Cross Trilogy: Volume I: The Lost Rebellion is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Fiction/ Historical category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Mab's Cross Trilogy meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $15.95.
