The Tsar’s Dragons series follows the epic tale of nineteenth-century industrialist John Hughes, who founded a city on the Russian steppe. For people like Hughes’ right-hand man, Glyn Edwards, who has found love in a new country, and Anna Parry, a Welsh orphan who has found fulfilment working in Hughesovka’s hospital, the city is a chance to build a new life, but fresh arrivals from their hometown threaten the peace and stability of that new existence. Meanwhile, for ambitious Russians like Alexei Beletsky, the city offers a chance to change their homeland for the better.

THE SECRET DIARY OF HENDRIK GROEN 83 1⁄4 YEARS OLD
Hendrik Groen
‘Another year and I still don’t like old people. Me? I am 83 years old.’
Hendrik Groen may be old, but he is far from dead and isn’t planning to be buried any time soon. Technically speaking he is . . . elderly. But surely there is more to life at his age than weak tea and potted geraniums? Hendrik sets out to write an exposé: a year in the life of his care home in Amsterdam and his Old-But-Not Dead Club. When Eefji – the woman Hendrik has always longed for – moves in, he attempts to make something of the life he has left, with hilarious and devastating consequences.
