A gripping, action-packed historical thriller and third installment in The Bernicia Chronicles

AD 635, Anglo-Saxon Britain: Oswald is now King of Northumbria. However, his plans for further alliances and conquests are quickly thrown into disarray when his wedding to a princess of Wessex is interrupted by news of a Pictish uprising. Rushing north, Oswald leaves Beobrand to escort the young queen to her new home. Their path is fraught with danger and uncertainty, and Beobrand must try to unravel secrets and lies if they are to survive. Meanwhile, old enemies are closing in, seeking brutal revenge. Beobrand will give his blood and blade in service to his king, but will that be enough to avert disaster and save his kith and kin from the evil forces that surround them?


"Murder, betrayal and vengeance fuel tribal warfare and personal combat. Beobrand is the warrior to follow." —David Gilman, author,Master of War series
