Rebecca Hazell’s Trilogy is Sweeping Historical Epic + Enter to Win

If you are a fan, or know someone who is, of historical fiction featuring amazing female characters, I invite you to keep in mind Rebecca Hazell and her The Tiger and the Dove Trilogy for your Christmas gift buying list! Rebecca is hosting a Book Blast, from December 1 – 14, to announce her series, and you can enter to win all three books in the trilogy! That’s right, enter the tour wide giveaway for yourself, but maybe buy as a gift for a family member and friend.

Rebecca’s trilogy is a sweeping epic series that you’ll get lost in. Meticulously researched and with stunning details, the series follow Rus Princess Sophia, stolen by the Mongols, across her many adventures and changes in her life. What you’ll read is a fictional living legacy of her life, told for her daughter, as well as a beautiful account of various religions and cultures. I’ve reviewed all three books, and you can find the reviews by clicking on each book title below, then the purchase links further below. Finally, you’ll see the giveaway links and the other places along the tour where you can enter to win.

 The Grip of God (Book One)

Tiger and the Dove

The Grip of God is the first novel in an epic historical trilogy, The Tiger and the Dove. Set in the thirteenth century, its heroine, Sofia, is a young princess of Kievan Rus. She begins her story by recounting her capture in battle and life of slavery to a young army captain in the Mongol armies that are flooding Europe. Not only is her life shattered, it is threatened by the bitter rivalries in her new master’s powerful family, and shadowed by the leader of the Mongol invasion, Batu Khan, Genghis Khan’s grandson. How will she learn to survive in a world of total war, much less rediscover the love she once took for granted? Always seeking to escape and menaced by outer enemies and inner turmoil, where can she find safe haven even if she can break free?

Clear eyed and intelligent, Sofia could be a character from The Game of Thrones, but she refuses to believe that life is solely about the strong dominating the weak or about taking endless revenge. Her story is based on actual historical events, which haunt her destiny. Like an intelligent Forrest Gump, she reflects her times. But as she matures, she learns to reflect on them as well, and to transcend their fetters. In doing so, she recreates a lost era for us, her readers.

Solomon’s Bride (Book Two)

Solomon’s Bride is the dramatic sequel to The Grip of God. Sofia, the heroine, a former princess from Kievan Rus’ was enslaved by a Mongol nobleman and then taken as a concubine by the leader of the Mongol invasions, Batu Khan, grandson of Genghis Khan. Now, having fled the Mongols with a price on her head, Sofia escapes into Persia and what she believes will be safety, only to fall into the clutches of the Assassins, who seek to disrupt the Mongol empire. In a world at war, both outer and inner, the second phase of her adventures unfolds. Can she ever find safe haven, much less the lost love and family that was almost destroyed by the Mongols?

Consolamentum (Book Three)

Consolamentum edited

In the finale of Sofia’s memoir, Consolamentum, both dramatic and poignant, her dreams of home are shattered when her own family betrays her. Raising her child on her own, mourning the loss of her beloved knight, and building a trading empire, she seeks safe haven for her child and herself. Her quest takes her from Antioch to Constantinople to Venice. A surprise reunion in Venice leads her to France where she runs afoul of the newly established Holy Inquisition, possibly the greatest challenge she has yet faced. Can a woman so marked by oppression, betrayal, and danger ever find her safe haven, much less genuine happiness?
