In Devil’s Charge, Michael Arnold offers readers a smattering of villains and hate objects, among them the dislikable rodent-like Colonel Crowe and tough, elusive, blonde-haired love interest Lisette Gaillard. It is early 1643 and England is riven by Civil War. Stryker, Crow and Gaillard are all in their different ways the King’s men.

England stands divided: king against Parliament, town against country, brother against brother. For Captain Stryker, scarred hero of a dozen wars, the rights and wrongs of the cause mean little. His loyalties are to his own small band of comrades - and to Queen Henrietta Maria's beautiful and most deadly agent, Lisette Gaillard. So when Prince Rupert entrusts him with a secret mission to discover what has happened to Lisette and the man she was protecting - a man who could hold the key to Royalist victory - nothing, not false imprisonment for murder, ambush, a doomed siege or a lethal religious fanatic will stand in his way. From the bloody rout of Cirencester, to the siege of Lichfield and finally to the killing fields of Hopton Heath, Michael Arnold brings vividly to life all the drama and the passion that lay behind the English Civil War.

great fun. Pretty historically accurate. Ready to delve into the next one.

The author is a very good story teller. I enjoy the descriptive action. It is a part of history that I was completely unaware of. The reasons I give only four stars are the same as I gave for the first book in the series. There is often no clear delineation when switching to a different character. And the main reason is the main character, Stryker, is supposed to be this battle hardened, infamous soldier that has battled all across Europe since he was a teenager, and yet he is constantly caught off guard and wounded in simple stupid ways. I can't picture anyone having survived years of conflict being caught unaware as often as Stryker.
