I’m so excited to join in on HFVBT‘s book tour of T.J. London’s The Tory and The Traitor, books #1 and #2 of The Rebels and Redcoats Saga. I’d planned to have a review of The Tory for you here today, but I unfortunately got the books a bit later than planned and have been sick most of the time since! As always, I will only provide an honest review, and, as I can’t provide that just yet, reviews of both books will come soon.
So, enjoy this spotlight post for The Tory and check back next week for coverage of its sequel, The Traitor. I’ll be adding reviews for both books, too, as soon as possible (reviews of The Tory and The Traitor have since been published!)!
I received copies of T.J. London’s The Tory and The Traitor through Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours for review purposes. As always, this post and future reviews reflect only my honest opinions of the books.
Be sure to check out the other lovely blog tour hosts at the end of this post, as well as a giveaway! Then make sure you visit our HFVBT tag for more fantastic historical fiction reads!

Publication Date: April 11, 2018
Paperback & eBook; 517 Pages
Series: The Rebels and Redcoats Saga, Book #1
Genre: Historical Fiction
It is the winter of 1776, and Captain John Carlisle, one of His Majesty’s not-so-finest, has gone back to the scene of the crime to right a wrong so dark it left a permanent stain on what was once an illustrious career and left a man broken, defeated, in search of justice…
In an effort to win back his commission, he must discover the true nature of the relationship between the Six Nations of the Iroquois and the Colonial Army. Undercover as a war profiteer, John travels to the treacherous Mohawk River Valley and infiltrates local society, making friends with those he’s come to betray.
But a chance meeting with a beautiful half Oneida innkeeper, whose tragic history is integrally linked to his own, will provide him with the intelligence he needs to complete his mission—and devastate her people.
Now, as the flames of war threaten to consume the Mohawk Valley, John has the chance to not only serve King and country but to clear his name. When the truth he uncovers ties his own secrets to those in the highest positions of the British military and threatens the very life of the woman he’s come to love, he will be forced to make a choice…

About the Author
T.J. London is a rebel, liberal, lover, fighter, diehard punk, and pharmacist-turned-author who loves history. As an author her goal is to fill in the gaps, writing stories about missing history, those little places that are so interesting yet sadly forgotten. Her favorite time periods to write in are first and foremost the American Revolutionary War, the French Revolution, the French and Indian War, the Russian Revolution and the Victorian Era. Her passions are traveling, writing, reading, barre, and sharing a glass of wine with her friends, while she collects experiences in this drama called life. She is a native of Metropolitan Detroit (but secretly dreams of being a Londoner) and resides there with her husband Fred and her beloved cat and writing partner Mickey.
