"Gripping final Rowankind installment... a strong and satisfying wrap-up of the series" - Publisher's Weekly
"I found Rowankind to be a fun read that I will happily recommend to anyone looking to read some good urban fantasyesque alternate history. You definitely won’t regret digging into this series!" - Arched Doorway
"I love the world-building in the Rowankind trilogy, drawing so strongly on real history and actual historical figures, especially since that’s backed up by excellent characterisation, believable character relationships, and strong plotting." Stevie Carroll (via The Good, the Bad and the Unread.)
What they said about Silverwolf
"A sexy , thrilling , enchanting, magical story. After reading this book I cannot wait to get my hand on the next Rowankind book." - JoDean Anderson
"LOTS of great badass women of various kinds." - Wordnerdy
As in the previous book, we see that all actions have consequences and can cause far-reaching repercussions, and, once again, I’m keen to find out what will befall our heroes next. A worthy second instalment in the series that will particularly appeal to fans of the first book, but won’t be completely impenetrable to those readers who are new to Ross and Corwen’s version of Regency England. - The Good, the bad and the Unread.
SILVERWOLF: "fascinating detail, overflowing with action, brimming with emotion (it even wrung a tear from me: that's very unusual for a book).
What they said about Winterwood
"Winterwood is a perfect blend of magic, historical fiction, and romance—it truly has something for every reader." Barnes & Noble:
"A finely crafted and well-researched plunge into swashbuckling, sorcery, shape-shifting and the Fae!
Highly entertaining." - Elizabeth Ann Scarborough

“Bedford takes a leisurely, semiepisodic approach to tying off her outstanding plot threads; despite the sensation of a ticking clock in the background, her heroes still find time for romance, side quests, and proper manners. Series fans will be glad to see old friends and antagonists, and will find this a strong and satisfying wrap-up of the series.” - Publisher's Weekly
It's 1802. The Mysterium is trying to control magic, but wild magical creatures are on the loose and the government is panicking. They don't know what to do about the rowankind, for so many years completely ignored and underestimated. Now they are free and their magic could change the shape of the industrial revolution.
The war with Napoleon's France is costly. Both sides need a breather and so a peace is brokered. What's an honest privateer to do when his livelihood is snatched away? How about a bit of honest smuggling?
Ross and Corwen have a wild wolf to babysit in the shape of Corwen's wayward brother, Freddie, but they are also still under an obligation to the Fae to approach Mad King George and get an equitable deal to protect the rowankind. That's going to take a bit of ingenuity...
Added to that an old enemy is about to come back into the picture, and an old friend who's a little the worse for wear. It's time to settle accounts with both of them.
"Swashbuckling action, folklore and characters to care about: this is an authentic English take on historical fantasy, magic and class." - Karri Sperring, author of The Grass King's Concubine.
What do you do with a feral wolf shapechanger who won't face up to his responsibilities? How do you contain magical creatures accidentally loosed into Britain's countryside? How do you convince a crew of barely-reformed pirates to go straight when there's smuggling to be done? How do you find a lost notebook full of deadly spells while keeping out of the clutches of its former owner? How do you mediate between a mad king and the seven lords of the Fae?
Ross and Corwen, she a witch and he a shapechanger, have several problems to solve but they all add up to the same thing. How do you make Britain safe for magic users?
It's 1802. A tenuous peace with France is making everyone jumpy. The Fae, and therefore Ross and Corwen at their behest, have unfinished business with Mad King George, who may not be as mad as everyone thinks--or if he is, he's mad in a magical way. The Fae have left mankind alone up to now because they don't care to get involved with mortals, but don't be fooled into thinking they're harmless.
"It's like an irresistible smorgasbord of all my favourite themes and fantasy elements all in one place, and a strong, compelling female protagonist was the cherry on the top." - Bibliosanctum
Full Publisher's Weekly Review - December 2018
In the gripping final Rowankind installment (following 2017’s Silverwolf), set in an alternate 1802 England beset by magic, witch Rossalinde and her new husband, wolf shape-shifter Corwen, are tasked by the Fae to convince King George III to end the persecution of magical beings and abolish the tyrannical Mysterium. While Ross and Corwen attempt to meet with the king, they must also deal with other supernatural issues, including imprisoned witches, murderous pirates, rogue trolls, and Corwen’s own brother, who risks going feral in his wolf form. Moreover, their old enemy Walsingham is at large and out for vengeance. With the Fae deadline for action swiftly approaching, Ross and Corwen must do everything in their power to sway Parliament’s minds regarding magic, or else ruin will fall upon the land. Bedford takes a leisurely, semiepisodic approach to tying off her outstanding plot threads; despite the sensation of a ticking clock in the background, her heroes still find time for romance, side quests, and proper manners. Series fans will be glad to see old friends and antagonists, and will find this a strong and satisfying wrap-up of the series.
