Two kings, Three young soldiers. One battle to end all battles.

Eager to prove his courage and defend his family honour, young Irish noble Gerald O'Connor rides his warhorse Troy north in King James’s cavalry.

Brothers Robert and Daniel Sherrard march south from the once-besieged city of Derry with King William’s army.

The chosen field of battle – the Boyne – lies waiting, where victory will decide who rules the lands of England, and of Ireland.

And the fighting will decide who survives the deadly game of war.

    We know the outcome of the Battle of the Boyne in 1690, but who were the people fighting this battle? And why were they fighting on the side of James or William?In 2015 Nicola Pierce published the excellent "Behind the Walls" about the Siege of Derry, that started in the Winter of 1688. In that book we first meet Daniel and Robert Sherrard, two Protestant teenage boys from Derry. They helped to close the city gates when the Jacobite army approached. In "Kings of the Boyne" the Sherrard brothers have joined King William's army. In this new book we are also introduced to Gerald O'Connor from County Offaly and his French friend Jacques who are in King James's army. We read about their respective journeys to the river Boyne with the two Kings. Why did the join? What was on their minds? What were their hopes and expectations? And then the battle starts and we read about these young men fighting, hoping to survive. And there are the two Kings; William and James. James was not only William's father in law, he was also William's uncle. How did they end up fighting each other in Ireland? "Kings of the Boyne" is a children's novel but, like Nicola's other books, is never dumbed-down. Some of the fighting is gruesome and written in a visual way. This is a book that adults will enjoy just as much a children will. An awesome read!

    Great read, learned loads about the battle and the motivations of the main players .....the kings....all three of them....and really got sucked in to the fighting with the men and boys who fought on both sides. I didn't realise how involved I got with the characters until.....well, read it and you will see what I mean
