Publisher Description

From phenomenally successful fantasy author Robert Jordan (The Wheel of Time), writing as Reagan O'Neal, comes The Fallon Blood, a splendid story of the American Revolution, now for the first time in audiobook format. In 1765, Michael Fallon, an Irishman on the run from brutal English overlords, makes his way to Charleston, South Carolina, as an indentured servant. Bound over to Thomas Carver, a successful merchant, he quickly shows a knack for trade -- and a disturbing attraction to Carver's beautiful, sensual daughter, Elizabeth. With luck and intelligence -- and not without bloodshed -- he rises into the rice-planting aristocracy of the Carolina Lowcountry, where a frontier spirit pulses beneath the superficial trappings of an agrarian society that is heading rapidly toward revolution. Michael Fallon hopes for peace. But the winds of war are rising, and the planter must become a privateer.... And the early dalliance with Elizabeth leaves a bitter aftertaste.... This audiobook follows the less familiar Southern course of the war, including the battles of Cowpens, King's Mountain, and Eutaw Springs (the bloodiest battle on the continent until Shiloh); and brings onto center stage such notables as Ben Franklin, Cornwallis, the Swamp Fox Francis Marion, the British Colonel "Butcher" tarleton, Colonel William Moultrie, the Marquis de Lafayette -- and a true cast of thousands!

Quotes

  • “Successfully blends action, adventure and sex with historical background. Like John Jakes, O'Neal knows how to keep his story moving.

    - Savannah News-Press
  • O'Neal not only writes with great virility, but he has done his historical research well. His ability to make characters come to life is admirable and The Fallon Blood is a wonderful way to escape from it all.

    - The Charleston News and Courier
  • This pulsing new novel…conveys the flavor of history without dullness, and the Palmetto State backdrop adds enormous interest. Entertaining.

    - The Columbia, S.C. State
  • Jordan's pulsing characters and exceptional historical and maritime research successfully evoke the excitement of the birth of a new nation without neglecting the romance, sex, and adventure of the private lives involved. While this Fallon series is a departure for Jordan in terms of setting and place, all of his fans will enjoy this exposition of valor, bravery, and love in American Revolution wars.
