America was born in blood . . .
1607. With King James on the throne, thousands of miles away, in Virginia, the English have established Jamestown, a tiny foothold on a vast, untamed continent and a powerful symbol of their colonial ambition. But trouble is stirring. The settlement has the support of Prince Henry, but is despised by his jealous father, the King, who seeks to destroy it.
When the spy Christian Hardy arrives at Jamestown on the young prince's orders, he soon realises it's not only the barbaric native attacks and threat of starvation the settlers need to be fearful of. Within the boundaries of the palisade plotters, who answer to their own masters, compile dark and murderous plans.
Meanwhile, a ship arrives, harbouring Hardy's arch-enemy: the deadly renegade Realm.
The battle for America has begun . . .
