The Lions of Trafalgar

by

New Companions. New Fun. An Awesome New Adventure It’s summer; Jack, convinced that the Kingdom of Sudana is safe at last, is only thinking about football and his forthcoming holiday to France. That is until people with the name Jack Burnside are attacked and murdered.

When Jack’s home is also destroyed, there can be little doubt who is behind it – Mendorun. Yet, how can that be … Mendorun is dead, isn’t he?

Jack must warn Jacob but how? The Kingdom of Sudana lies a whole starlit night away and Bud, the camel, has been reduced to slivers at wood. His only chance is to find Adolphus, one of Nelson’s guardian lions, and bring him to life

The Lions of Trafalgar is the 3rd book in the Jack Burnside trilogy: the other two are, A Dangerous Game and The Bird Children

'Sunset on Golden Wings' which will be published at the end of April, although it can be read as a stand alone, is actually the sequel to 'The Year the Swans Came' and also brings the five book sereies to a close.

The idea for the series happened in 2010 when I was visiting Holland to celebrate the publication of Running but it was three years before I completed the first draft of 'The Year the Swans Came'. Based on the legend, Leda and the Swan, following a suggestion made by the agent, Felicity Bryan, I also began writing The Click of a Pebble, Book 1 of the trilogy, Children of Zeus, which is about many of the same characters but at a differerent point in their lives. And whereas 'The Year the Swans Came' and 'Sunset on Golden Wings' are narrated by Maidy Bader, the trilogy is written in the 3rd person and details the lives of Yost, Zande and Tatania as they struggle to survive in a world that wants them dead.

Barbara Spencer

In 1967, considering herself to be destined for a life of mediocrity, Barbara Spencer hi-tailed it to the West Indies to watch cricket, the precursor to a highly colourful career spanning three continents in which she was caught up in riots, wars, and choosing Miss World. An award-winning children's author, over the past decade Barbara has been lucky enough to be invited to Booksignings at Waterstones throughout the Midlands and the south and west, and has visited dozens of primary and secondary schools. In 2017 Barbara decided to change horses in mid-stream and is now writing magical realism for adults and top teens.
