Edgar knows he must defeat William the Conqueror, a ruthless leader and formidable foe. But can a 17 year old boy with an ill-equipped army challenge the Conqueror for his birthright, the throne of England? Edgar's one hope of victory is to forge an alliance with England's ancient Viking enemies and pray that the rest of his people rise up in support.
