A New Novel in the Rainey Chronicles Series by B.G. Cousins
Muscovy 1460. After years of combat, veteran mercenary Connor Rainey heads into the Land of the Rus in search of a peaceful new home. What he finds is anything but peaceful.
In the dark world of early Russia, Ivan III sets in motion a plan for uniting the fractured lands into a powerful new nation. But he is surrounded by enemies, both outside his lands and in his own court. When Connor Rainey arrives with knowledge of new weapons and the politics of Muscovy’s enemies to the west, he is rewarded with the lands of a boyar whose attempt to assassinate Ivan was foiled by Rainey. And with the lands comes the boyar’s fiery daughter, Ludmilla, who is unwilling to surrender her birthright to anyone.
Spanning 25 years, The Great Celt weaves a story of love, intrigue and power leading to the formation of Russia as a nation and the transformation of the Grand Prince of Muscovy to Tsar of All the Russias.
