Product description

Review

From acclaimed historical writer Conn Iggulden comes a novel set in the red-blooded days of Anglo-Saxon England. This is the original game for the English throne.

In the year 937, King Æthelstan, grandson of Alfred the Great, readies himself to throw a great spear into the north. His dream of a kingdom of all England will stand or fall on one field and the passage of a single day.

(from the publisher's description)

Iggulden's Dunstan is a vivid, convincing character (BBC History Magazine)

This engrossing novel is rich in intrigue, with Iggulden breathing life into this remarkable and complex figure who played a vital role in safeguarding a newly united England (Daily Express)

Iggulden... tells an absolutely cracking story... the pace is nail-biting and the set dressing magnificent (The Times)

Iggulden takes what you thought was a ho-hum era and peopled it with characters so finely honed it becomes a gripping and glorious legend. Can't fault the man. Brilliant! (Weekend Sport)

Breathes new life into the darkest and most dramatic of times (Star)

Iggulden is in a class of his own when it comes to epic, historical fiction (The Daily Mirror)

Compelling reading (Woman and Home)

Superbly plotted and paced (The Times)

From the Inside Flap

In the year 937, King Æthelstan, grandson of Alfred the Great, readies himself to throw a great spear into the north. His dream of a kingdom of all England will stand or fall on one field and the passage of a single day.

At his side is Dunstan of Glastonbury, full of ambition and wit, perhaps enough to damn his soul. His talents will take him from the villages of Wessex to the royal court, to the hills of Rome - from exile to exaltation.

Through Dunstan's vision, by his guiding hand, England may come together as one great country - or fall back into anarchy and misrule . . .

From Conn Iggulden, one of our finest historical writers, Dunstan is an intimate portrait of a priest and performer, a visionary, a traitor and confessor to kings - the man who changed the fate of England.

As a fan of historical novels and of Conn Iggulden's previous three series I was keen to read this new work. It introduced me to a character and period that I knew little about, although I have read the Utred series by Bernard Cornwell that precedes this period historically. The first few chapters were a bit of a slow burn for me, but the characters were engaging enough for me to persist and I'm glad I did. Well researched & written the story brought to life a tale of one of the great men of Anglo Saxon England for me. Plenty of intrigue & drama with a few twists and turns thrown in. Dunstan's achievements with the royal mines and mints brought to mind the similar dogged exploits of Sir Issac Newton who rooted out counterfeiters several centuries later. All in all a whorthwhile read.

As always Conn Iggulden a real page turner of a novel where he is able to make historical legends come to life. This is all based on a real life character St Dunstan who restored Monastic life in England & later become the Archbishop of Canterbury. A very interesting character, who achieved greatness but not in a straight forward way, a most cunning survivor as he worked his way into more power and wealth.

Once again Conn Iggulden has weaved an excellent tale. I had never heard of the main character but new a little about the English Kings who followed Alfred. This has widened my knowledge of English history.

Somewhat disappointed. I love Iggulden novels, but i have struggled with this one. The central character does not develop into one you want to shout for, in fact he annoys at times!!! Have a few chapters left and i am determined to finish. Says it all!

Intriguing story from a master storyteller, enjoyed it, but not the blood and guts we have come to expect from Conn

Well structured and as with all his previous books he colours the tapestry of his tale perfectly. Without giving anything away the ending seemed hurried by comparison with the rest of the book but nonetheless a fine historical drama lovingly carved out of true events

A very personal take on the events of a little-known period of English history. Conn Iggulden's stories are always unusual in their approach, and quite gripping.
