England in the twelfth century: torn by a long and bloody civil war between King Stephen and Henry Plantagenet.

The wise and principled Fulk, Earl of Stafford, along with his son Rannulf and their allies bravely fight with their knights for honor and peace as Thierry, Fulk's uncle, grows increasingly obsessed by his own dark desire for success.

New battles are fought throughout the kingdom and sieges grip the nation as war and fever threaten to take Fulk's loved ones from him.

Filled with regret and uneasy about the naïve and stubborn Rannulf's welfare, the Earl of Stafford fiercely defends himself and all he holds dear.

Yet all is not well as grief and weariness threaten to overtake him, but as he prays for guidance he relentlessly seeks victory and peace amongst the volatile treachery that surrounds him.

A loyal fighter, father and friend, Fulk contends with dangerous heraldic politics and powerful but potentially deadly noble women, to fight for what he knows is rightfully his...

'Hammer for Princes' is a drama of jealousy and ambition, betrayal and murder, played out in a bitter medieval family feud.

Praise for Cecelia Holland:

'Brilliant evocation of medieval England... Miss Holland is expert at using... details that bring home the feel, the colour and the scent of the period.' Rosemary Hawley Jarman.
