Beneath the warhorses' hooves, a nation will fall; a tale of war set in medieval Ireland and Wales.
"Superbly researched and thrillingly told, Swordland is a vivid portrait of the ferocious but godly Normans as they rampage through Wales and Ireland. Writing in a lucid, descriptive style that brings to life landscapes, characters and battles, Butler delights in a narrative that blazes with intrigue and spine-chilling bloody action, while still managing to weave themes of religious affiliation, kinship, and questions over birthright like golden threads in a medieval tapestry." - Anthony Quinn, critically acclaimed author of Disappeared
