The Lost Prince

By Dermot McCabe

Historical fiction | Paperback, eBook


Dredgemarsh is on the cusp of a glorious era of prosperity under the inspirational leadership of Cesare Greyfell. Cesare and his beloved Queen Lucretia await the birth of an heir, the culmination of all their dreams. Tragedy strikes and the dream is lost. The awful event is compounded by a vicious and traitorous menial, Shoveller Fairgame, with delusions of grandeurs, who finds himself in the extraordinary position of ending the reign of the Greyfells forever. He does not waste his opportunity. Fate presents another terrifying threat when Cawdrult the brutal King of neighbouring Brooderlund assembles an unstoppable army to raze Dredgemarsh to the ground and slaughter all its citizens. This mesmerising Gothic tale is a continuation of The Reluctant King and like it immerses the reader in the smells, tastes, tears and laughter of a medieval world of intrigue, love, hate and brutality.

Dermot McCabe was born in Bray, Co. Wicklow, Ireland. He straddles both science and the humanities with a degree in English Literature, Philosophy and Archaeology from University College Dublin and a Masters in Applied Electronics from Trinity College Dublin. Following a very successful career in the national radio and television station, RTE, he took early retirement from his position as Head of Broadcast Engineering to follow his love of books and writing. Since then he has published two novels in The Dredgemarsh series: The Reluctant King and The Lost Prince. The third novel in the series will be published in the autumn of 2015. Dermot is one of the founder members of Abraxas Writers. They meet every week in The Strand Hotel, an inspirational location because it was built, as a summer house, by Oscar Wilde's father. That same hotel is within sight of the Martello Tce. where James Joyce lived as a boy. His other keen interests are Music, Art , cycling and walking a family dog, Blake, in the surrounding countryside of Wicklow, The Garden of Ireland. Inspired by the writings of Mervyn Peake, Dickens, C. S. Lewis, and J. R. Tolkien; the paintings of Bruegel and Hieronymus Bosch; medieval music and plain chant going back to Gregorian Chant in the 6th century, Dermot has spent many years creating the medieval kingdom of Dredgemarsh in all its pomp and bawdiness.
