Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
If you enjoy an action packed historical fiction book This is one at which you should take a look. Though I recommend you also check out the previous two So this would make more sense to you. It continues the story of Icel in the Dark ages again An era when there are changes in the Kings who reign. This turbulent times and the folks living then Are the focus for this continuing story again. Unfortunately this wasn't great for me But why not look for yourself to see We're all different, I'm sure you'll agree So a favourite for you it could well be! For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you, And, hopefully obviously, this is my honest review.
Icel is a lone wolf no more.
Oath sworn to Wiglaf, King of Mercia and acknowledged as a member of Ealdorman Ælfstan’s warrior band, Icel
continues to forge his own destiny on the path to becoming the Warrior of Mercia.
With King Ecgberht of Wessex defeated and Londonium back under Mercian control, the Wessex invasion of Mercia is over.
But the Wessex king was never Mercia’s only enemy. An unknown danger lurks in the form of merciless Viking raiders, who set their sights on infiltrating the waterways of the traitorous breakaway kingdom of the East Angles, within touching distance of Mercia’s eastern borders.
Icel must journey to the kingdom of the East Angles and unite against a common enemy to ensure Mercia’s hard-won freedom prevails.
