Book Description

James Wilde's retelling of the story of England's forgotten hero - Hereward the Wake - continues in this new brutal and bloodily exciting novel - a must-read for historical fiction fans!

From the Inside Flap

1071. Five years have passed since the Norman’s crushing victory at Hastings. England reels under the savage rule of its new king, the one they call ‘the Bastard’. The North has been left a wasteland – villages torched, innocents put to the sword, land stolen. Rats feed upon fields of the dead.

It seems no atrocity is too great to ensure William’s iron grip upon the crown. Now his cold gaze is turning towards the last stronghold of the English resistance. After these years of struggle, he will brook no further challenge to his power. His vast army is massing; his machines of war are being made ready.

In their fortress on the Isle of Ely, the English rebels have put their faith in one man – a warrior, a leader and a master of the art of waging war. His name is Hereward, and he has planned an uprising that will sweep the hated king from the throne once and for all.

But Hereward has disappeared - and with him, it seems. England’s hopes of victory. Can this great hero really have abandoned his people? Time is running out, for King William is about to begin his final, devastating assault that will surely mark the end of days . . .

Here is a heart-pounding tale of heroism, treachery and sacrifice – and the bloodiest rebellion England has ever known . . .

An enjoyable romp which I was looking forward to having read the previous two.
Sadly I think the third in the trilogy, which so often is the case, lacks substance, that's not to say there's not plenty of action, but built around a repetitive storyline.
Nevertheless a good holiday read.

Format: Hardcover
James Wilde once again brings to the fore his brilliant portrayal of Hereward. One of the darkest characters i have read in years, and yet a hero, a beacon for his people and a knife in the side of William the bastards army.
This book had me on the edge of my seat for every page, so many ups and downs. Even knowing the history you hope that somehow something will change, that Hereward will win the day and the Norman King William will be driven back across the wale road.
This can only be achieved with some excellent writing, with the skill and prose James Wilde has honed to an edge as fine as the one on Herewards axe.
Of all the books in the series this one has for me felt like the darkest of the series. A story full of intrigue, battles, skirmishes, battle skill and yet more, personal impacts, the cost of the loss of a family member and what it will drive an individual too. The tragedy of family, those people tied to you so deeply, so intimately and yet people we don't choose and as such don't have to like.
In End of days James Wilde plays the styles and character of Hereward and William off against each other, it's this back and forth that helps give this book its darkness, but also its powerful narrative. The brooding intelligence and malevolence of William and the Cunning intelligence of Hereward, who is ultimately stronger because he fights his darkest desires, he uses the land that he knows so intimately and the people who love him so much to defeat the monster who uses money and destruction.
This book is a huge huge triumph for James Wilde, 2 parts of the English character, two parts that have not yet blended to become the empire building British, a personality at war with itself.

Highly recommended

This man James wilde is a great writer I truly enjoyed this England, 1071 five years have passed since the crushing Norman victory at the Battle of Hastings. The country reels under the savage rule of the new king, the one they call 'the Bastard'. The North has been left a wasteland - villages razed, innocents put to the sword, land stolen. It seems no atrocity is too great to ensure William's grip upon the crown. Rats feed upon fields of the dead And now he turns his cold gaze east, towards the last stronghold of the English resistance. After years of struggle, he will brook no further challenge to his power: his vast army masses and his siege machines are readied. In their fortress on the Isle of Ely, the English have put their faith in the only man who might defeat the murderous invaders. He is called Hereward. He is a warrior and a master tactician - as adept at slaughter as his enemy and plans have been been set in motion for a bloody uprising that will sweep the Norman king off the throne once and for all. But Hereward is missing. With their hopes of victory dwindling, can the English rebels find the leader who seems to have abandoned them before William the Bastard begins his final, devastating assault that will truly be the end of days...Here is a tale of heroism and treachery - and the bloodiest rebellion England has ever known.

This is the third volume of James Wilde's trilogy on Hereward and his insurrection against William of Normandy - the Conqueror. I had mixed feelings regarding the two previous volumes, but I liked this one much more.

Part of this has to do with the characters, which I found more believable, starting with Hereward himself. I also felt that many of the characters had more depth and more complexity than what had been shown before. While most of the characters previously only seemed to be driven by vengeance or ambition and interested in slaughter or fighting, in this volume, they also appear to be motivated by honour and duty. In addition to Hereward and Harald Redteeth, whose personal feud continues and reaches its climax in this volume, a new character - the Norman knight Deda (a strange name for a Norman, although it might have been "Dieudat"), a young but broken veteran - appears in this volume.

One example that I particularly liked was the character of William of Normandy himself. While clearly unsympathetic, ruthless and cruel, but always with a purpose, he is also shown as human, and not some kind of monster. The end of the book gives a hint explaining his behaviours: ruthlessness, brutality and treachery had been so rift in Normandy that the only way for him to dominate his knights and lords was to feared by them, and be tougher and "worse" than them. The book, however, also shows him as a great and relentless military leader capable of doing "whatever it takes" to get the job done. This includes putting himself in danger or destroying part of his newly conquered kingdom to subdue it and make his point -the infamous "Harroying of the North".
