Reviews

This impressive debut fuses fantasy with alternate history, reversing the British Empire's conquest of India. Wilson's version of 19th-century England has been invaded and conquered by the Indian empire of Rajthana, which rules all of Europe with vast armies and a magical source known as sattva . . . The mix of Arthurian legend and Hindu mysticism make this breakneck-paced adventure a rich and engaging read. - Publishers Weekly on Land of Hope and GlorySometimes you stumble upon a book that really draws you in. Time becomes meaningless and you put aside the real world just to finish the story. Land of Hope and Glory by Geoffrey Wilson was one of those books for me. - Alternate History Weekly Update on LAND OF HOPE AND GLORYThis impressive debut fuses fantasy with alternate history, reversing the British Empire's conquest of India.
