Description

The Powder of Death opens with a returned envoy to China meeting an English scholar in Oxford, in the mid-13th century; their purpose is to share a deadly secret. They vow that the knowledge of gunpowder must die with them. The novel tells the story of its re‐discovery, one man’s obsession with the powder of death, and Edward III’s determination to use it to his advantage. The nature of warfare is changed forever, and the world hears the death-knell of Knightly chivalry.

Professional reviews

"Julian Stockwin is back with a fantastic standalone novel, a historical epic not to be missed. Praise for the author: “Historical fiction is a tricky beast. As a writer you have to keep your history in proper shape while combining it with a narrative that someone actually wants to read. Score two out of two for Julian Stockwin.” DAILY MAIL “Stockwin's page-turning prose, vividly drawn characters and ability to draw the reader right into these ancient times create a grand and compelling historical epic.” QUARTERDECK MAGAZINE on The Silk Tree."
