Product Description

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 ambition of the Norman duke come to rest with just one man: Hereward. But in his country's hour of greatest need, his enemies at court have made him outlaw. To stay alive--and a free man--he must carve a bloody swathe from the frozen lands outside the court. The tale of a man whose deeds will become the stuff of legend, this is also the story of two mismatched allies: Hereward the man of war, and Alric, a man of peace, a monk. One will risk everything to save the land he loves, the other to save his friend's soul . . .

Only buy this book if you want to a) read Hereward and have not bought the uk edition. Or b) want a complete collection of covers and titles for this author.

The author and publisher are not in control of amazon selling this with no notification of its link to the title Hereward.
The 1 star reviews are unfounded, this is a fantastic read, go read the reviews for Hereward if you don't believe me. Don't punish the author or publisher for amazons omission of facts to sell more books.

I was fortunate to receive a review copy of this, and enjoyed it tremendously. It tells of a turning point in England's history, the Norman invasion by William the Bastard, and Hereward's revolt against brutal Norman rule.
Well written, fast-paced and very informative, this was hard to put down.

Regarding the other comments here, I wasn't aware of this book being published under a different title - and although I understand that a buyer would be disappointed to find they had already purchased this, it seems a pity to give the author bad reviews for this. I for one will certainly be reading the next two books in this trilogy.
