Is it foolish to think that one boy and a blood red horse can save a fair maiden and the throne of England?
Will and Gavin de Granville have come back from the crusade older, braver, and definitely wiser.

The king is missing. The country is in turmoil. And some men would do anything for power. What will two brothers risk for the woman they both love and the king they have both sworn to protect and serve? In the second book of the de Granville trilogy, Will and Gavin find their family – and all of England – in serious peril.

About the Author
K. M. Grant was the third of seven children, and she grew up in the wild countryside of Scotland. When she was younger, she learned that her ancestor, Frances Townley, was executed in 1746 for his faith and his severed head was shipped around the country as an example to others. Her family kept a lock of his hair framed in the sitting room to remember him by. That family lore fueled Grant's imagination, and later, a wild red horse named Muffet inspired her to write about Hosanna. She lives in Glascow, Scotland, with her husband and children where she works as a journalist and a broadcaster.
Blood Red Horse was K. M. Grant's first novel. The thrilling conclusion to the de Granville trilogy, Blaze of Silver, will be published next spring.
