Philip Photiou was invited to a Medieval Fair for His Book
Philip Photiou was invited to the medieval fair at the tomb of Sir Guy de Brien (originally the book cover illustration with Henry VI), where he took snaps while holding copies of his book, The Lamb of God.
The Lamb of God is an epic tome based on the 1460s era in England. The main character Philip Neville has been tasked with finding and ushering the recently dethroned Henry-VI back to London. Sir Henry VI is portrayed as a humble and pious character. In fact, the book is named after him since his kindness was equated with a lamb of God by his adoring public. The new ruler King Edward IV is quite successful at reigning the England of that day. During this relatively peaceful time, Philip, initially losing his object of affection, is forced to get married to another via court, but his rebellious nature doesn’t gel with it. Nevertheless, King Edward IV and Richard Neville become at odds with each other, leaving the whole nation in perplexed ambiguity. The book is smeared with intense realism and accurate descriptions of the respective period.
Philip Photiou was born and raised in Plymouth. His first book was Plymouth at War, his second published book was Wrath of the Kings, and this is his third published book. Currently, he is researching the turbulent 15th century of England. The lamb of God is the second book from his trilogy of Wars of the Roses.
