Character Feature – ‘Cromwell’

Welcome to the fourth in my series of character features. This time, I'd like to introduce you to the main protagonist in the story, Cromwell, leader of the 'Ironsides'. The Ironsides are a post-apocalyptic military force, who model themselves on the old New Model Army of the English Civil War. Cromwell is not his real name (that is unknown) and he disguises his appearance. His background is steeped in mystery as well, and rumours abound as to his true identity.

Modelling himself on the renowned former Lord High Protector, his aims, in relation to the anarchy of post-catastrophe Britain, become more and more apparent as the book progresses. Feared and respected, he is known to be brutal, as well as having a talent for commanding loyalty amongst all those who rally to his cause. However, he does have an Achilles' heel – and this all relates to his concerns and ultimate conflict with the main character Patrick. Again, all this will be revealed in due course when the book is finally available. Again, I wouldn't want to say too much as that would ruin things, I believe!

See you next time – Owen Law.
