The Elder family returns in Scars From The Past, book one of a new Wars of the Roses series. What can the next generation of the Elders do when trouble strikes very close to home?

"Derek Birks has taken his usual high standard of storytelling to a whole new level. Scars From the Past is impossible to put down... I defy you to enjoy this book and not want to go back to Feud, where it all started." ​The Review

The Blood of Princes



THE BLOOD OF PRINCES: Book 2 of The Craft of Kings series - out later in 2017!

Another great cover design by Katie Birks!

When twelve-year-old Edward V inherits the throne, the kingdom is plunged into crisis,

so his uncle Richard, Duke of Gloucester, seizes power.

But is Gloucester the king’s saviour, or his enemy?

Determined to ensure Edward’s safety, young lord John Elder vows to uncover the truth

– even if it means becoming an outlaw.

Even if it sets him on a path to treason.
