Besieged Fortress

Besieged Fortress cover

Besieged Fortress is a sequel to Mary Renault’s The Charioteer set seven years after the original. If you have not read the source text it is strongly recommended that you do so first.

Seven years on, Ralph and Laurie have found a precarious refuge together in Gibraltar. But in the post-War world attitudes are hardening and positions becoming polarised, and they find themselves engaged in a new conflict, one in which they may not necessarily be on the same side. And then an unexpected visitor arrives…

The language used is era-specific and follows that used in the original source.
