The Cock o' the North

by A.J. Hall

The Cock o' the North is the fifteenth in a series of Queen of Gondal ebooks by the author A.J. Hall. You might like to refer to their suggested reading order & more detailed series information. It is a quasi-historical AU of the BBC Sherlock series set (more-or-less) in three fantasy kingdoms devised by the Bronte children, with occasional excursions into other fandoms (Life on Mars, in this case).

The border between Gondal and Gaaldine is a turbulent land, ruled by blood and feud and whose mailed fist strikes hardest. The five short days of the Pentecost Truce offer the only interval of peace in the Border year. For the first time Charis sits in her mother's place as President of the Truce, and everyone is watching, waiting for her to make a mistake.

Forbidden love flourishes amid the licence of the truce fair, and no-one is who he -- or, for that matter, she -- seems.

Dedicated, with enormous gratitude, to my beta Caulkhead.
