'You are a prophet and seer with the brightest mind in an age. Your blood is that of the man who should have been king ...That's what the king and his lords see. And they will kill you, one day' Britain in the seventh century - and the world is changing. Small kingdoms are merging, frequently and violently. Edwin, King of Northumbria, plots his rise to overking of all the Angles.
This is a brilliant book. Full of action and great characters and full of detail about the times, without ever seeming like a lecture on Anglo Saxon England. Can't recommend it highly enough
