  • About

    Early May 1944. A British SOE agent lands in a remote part of occupied France. His cover: the identity of a local doctor.

    His mission: aiding the Resistance against a notorious SS Division. As he changes places with the real Dr Xavier Bonnet, the young Frenchman stares into the face of his British impersonator and utters one word: “Unbelievable.”

    Despite his father’s warning that, “When fate arrives, the physician becomes a fool,” Ed Hunston is determined to follow the family tradition and become a doctor. In 1936, a stroke of good fortune gains him entry into the hallowed cloisters of Oxford, where he befriends fellow medic, Tom Shaw. Six years later, with the country at war, and inspired by Tom’s injured fighter pilot brother, the newly qualified duo arrive in the town of East Grinstead to work under the famed plastic surgeon, Archibald McIndoe.

    Then, one rainy afternoon, the reality of war hits Ed for the first time, and he is catapulted down a path he could never have expected to follow, a path that will test his father’s prophecy to its limits.

    Blade Warriors tells of a close friendship and the acute pain of loss. It is an unflinching look at the extremes people will go to in order to quell their aching souls.

    Above all, it is a story of vengeance.

    Blade Warriors concludes the trilogy of novels by K K Poole, that includes The Sudden Metropolis and The Long White Cloud.

    ¡Estupendo!

    ¡Estupendo!

    Wow. This book just grabs hold of you, pulls you to the edge of your seat and doesn’t let go! Expect the unexpected- the suspense is red hot and the use of imagery is sublime- the characters come alive from the pages and you’re right there, living the story with Dr Ed Hunston in WWII.Its like Frederick Forsyth and Dan Brown rolled into one, but there is something else..a lot of the fiction in this book is based on true facts and this gives KK Poole’s novels that X factor and uniqueness that I have never seen before.
    As with the other 2 books in this trilogy, I just couldn’t put this book down and the raw emotion flowing from the pages can leave you exhausted! Incredibly researched , it continues future generations of the Hunston family in the storyline- What a privilege it’s been to know them.
    This author is a genius with a rare gift, so compelling and powerfully written, it’s hard to believe he hasn’t been writing for decades!
    This novel will knock you out.

    Powerful, touching, irresistible

    Powerful, touching, irresistible

    Powerfully constructed and impressively researched. This last book in the trilogy continues to enthrall the reader to the last page. I found the honesty utterly moving. I’m really sad to have reached the end of these three magnificently crafted novels, I shall miss the characters, who I care deeply about and who have become my friends. So readable, so enjoyable, so irresistible!

    Intriguing adventure which is hard to put down

    Intriguing adventure which is hard to put down

    Set in England and France during the Second World War, this is the third in K K Poole’s trilogy and tells the story of the decisions taken in life by the narrator Ed Hunston, as a result of the totally unexpected events on one particular day during his medical career. It is an intriguing adventure which can be thoroughly enjoyed even without having read the first two novels ‘The Sudden Metropolis’ and ‘The Long White Cloud’. The interweaving of the well drawn characters through a tense and exciting storyline against a historical backdrop filled with well researched detail which is often terrifying to read, creates a book which is hard to put down.
    The suspense begins with a prologue which only fully makes sense in the last few pages when, after unexpected plot twists, we discover what conclusions the narrator, Ed Hunston, reaches about the nature of vengeance.
