HAND OF VENGEANCE, new Anglo-Saxon era fiction soon-to-release

"This really is a magnificent book. It was written with the mind of a lawyer and the pen of a poet.”
                           17-year-old advance-manuscript reader

I had an absolutely wonderful time writing this book. Set in 8th-century Anglo-Saxon Northumbria, HAND OF VENGEANCE takes its place as the second in my HEROES & HISTORY SERIES, Hostage Lands being the landmark book for the new series. There are several more books stewing in their juices for this series that will include historical fiction from ancient to modern times. Click on the title and read a sample chapter. Or click here to listen to me read an audio excerpt.

"What could be better than an intriguing mystery, a little romance, and a short sojourn in a place and time that’s little known and less understood?  Douglas Bond shines a light on the past in a way that’s as entertaining as it is informative."
Janie B. Cheaney, Senior Writer, WORLD magazine
