Hammerstone 1149 A.D.
Til Death Us Do Part
About the Book
England once again staggers toward open warfare as Prince Henry grows ever stronger. King Stephen looks to local loyal Earls, but the Earl of Malton,a staunch supporter of the crown, has disappeared. Badly wounded, Robert found refuge with the nuns of St. Hilds, but when Maken sent soldiers to guard him, they found only his bloody rags in the bed. Maken de Courtelaine, without the natural protection of her husband's powerful connections & military fame, is exposed to the avarice and hatred of Norman ruling class. A rich Earldom, a large treasury, and an absent Earl soon brings enemies from every quarter to plunder Hammerstone Castle. Even the King thinks of great wealth within its strong walls.
About the Author
Mark Anthony "Tony" Parks has written 5 novels in the Hammerstone series. He is retired and lives with his wife in Ontario, Canada, where he writes articles for a local newspaper. He has always been an avid reader and usually has 4-5 books on the go at once, and is a great lover of history. He has a son and daughter who also love writing. In his spare time he enjoys fishing, museums, and is active in community service. Writing The Hammerstone Series has been immensely gratifying, as he started thinking about it in highschool (although he didn't put pen to paper for this series until a dozen years later). Once he started though, the series took on a life of itself.... and the rest is "history".
