Publisher Comments:

1062, a time many fear is the End of Days. With the English King Edward heirless and ailing, across the grey seas in Normandy the brutal William the Bastard waits for the moment when he can drown England in a tide of blood. The ravens of war are gathering. But as the king's closest advisors scheme and squabble amongst themselves, hopes of resisting the naked ambition of the Norman duke come to rest with just one man: Hereward.

To some a ruthless warrior and master tactician, to others a devil in human form, Hereward is as adept in the art of warfare as the foes that gather to claim England's throne. But in his country's hour of greatest need, his enemies at court have made him an outlaw. To stay alive—and a free man—he must carve a bloody swathe from the frozen lands outside the court, in this evocative tale of a man whose deeds will become the stuff of legend.

Review:

"British fantasy writer Wilde's historical covers the chaotic years of 1062 to 1067 as England convulses in civil strife, murders, and royal treachery while struggling to repel savage Viking raids and the feared Norman invasion. Saxon warrior Hereward (from Wilde's Hereward: The Devil's Army) and Christian monk Alric are on the run from Viking mercenaries and assassins because of the secrets they hold, secrets that threaten the throne of England. These unlikely allies face relentless pursuit and stunning betrayal from family, friends, and hired killers and are unwittingly involved in a dangerous conspiracy to seize the English crown. Wilde vividly describes those turbulent, dismal years known then as the End of Days, culminating in the bloody battle against the Vikings at Stamford Bridge, the butchery at Hastings days later between the exhausted English and the invading Normans, and the merciless cruelty of Norman occupation. Setting up an obvious sequel, Hereward and Alric are left outlaws and traitors, unable to trust anyone but each other, and even that is tenuous. This is a masterful tale, graphic and gory, and loaded with medieval history. Agent: Sheil Land Associates, U.K." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
