    1. Nicola Pierce's latest novel follows the story of the Battle of the Boyne in 1690 through the eyes of a variety of characters. The book can be read as a stand alone tale or as a sequel to her previous book Behind the Walls which dealt with the siege of Derry in 1689, as two characters from Behind the Walls also feature in the new book; brothers Robert and Daniel Sherrard. Also featured in the book are a young cavalry man Gerald O'Connor, his Parisien friend Jacques, their companions Michael and [...]


    2. REVIEW BY JACK - YEAR 11Kings of the Boyne is historical fiction but in a different style. It is about the battle of Boyne in Ireland at the end of the glorious revolution.

In "Kings of the Boyne" the Sherrard brothers [...]


    4. It's 1690, the year King James and King William of Orange began the Battle of the Boyne in Ireland. They, along with thousands of soldiers, fought for religion, power, money, honor, hope, and peace. Gerald O'Connor, Robert and Daniel Sherrard, and the two kings' points of view tell this story remarkably well. Having read many books about war, I thought this one did a good job of expressing the cruelty, misunderstanding, and emotions that happen on the battlefield. It was helpful to have some pri [...]
