Product Description

Book Description

The story of Hereward, forgotten hero of English history, continues in James Wilde's second brutal and bloody novel - a must-read for action-packed historical fiction fans!

From the Inside Flap

1067. The battle of Hastings has been lost. Harold Godwinson is dead. The iron fist of William the Bastard has begun to squeeze the life out of England. Villages are torched and men, women and children put to the sword as the Norman king attempts to impose his cruel will upon the unruly nation.

But there is one who stands in the way of the invader's savagery. He is called Hereward. He is a warrior and master tactician and as adept at slaughter as the imposter who sits upon the throne. And he is England's last hope.

In a Fenlands fortress of water and wild wood, Hereward's resistance is simmering. His army of outcasts grows by the day - a devil's army that emerges out of the mists and the night, leaving death in its wake.

But William is not easily cowed. Under the command of his ruthless deputy, Ivo Taillebois - a man they call 'the Butcher' - the Norman forces will do whatever it takes to crush the rebels, even if it means razing the country to the ground.

Here then is the tale of the bloodiest rebellion England has ever known - the beginning of an epic struggle that will echo down the years...

From the Back Cover

1067. It seems all was lost at Hastings. Harold Godwinsson is dead and now the iron fist of William the Bastard has begun to squeeze the life out of this conquered land. Villages are torched and men, women and children put to the sword.

But there is one who yet stands in the way of the invader: Hereward. A warrior and master tactician as adept at slaughter as the imposter who sits upon the throne, he is England's last hope.

In his Fenland fortress of water and wild wood, Hereward's resistance simmers. His is a devil's army, one that steals out of the night mists and leaves death in its wake.

But William is not easily cowed. Under the command of Ivo Taillebois - nicknamed 'the Butcher' - the Normans will do whatever it takes to crush the English rebels, even if it means razing the country to the ground...

About the Author

James Wilde is a Man of Mercia. Raised in a world of books, the author studied economic history at university before travelling the world in search of adventure. Unable to forget a childhood encounter - in the pages of a comic - with the great English warrior, Hereward, Wilde returned to the haunted fenlands of Eastern England, Hereward's ancestral home, where he became convinced that this legendary hero should be the subject of his first novel. Wilde indulges his love of history and the high life in the home his family have owned for several generations in the heart of a Mercian forest.
