Riding into the mountainous region of Rheged, Cynan faces implacable enemies who would do anything to further their own ends.</p><p>Forced to confront their pasts, and with death and betrayal at every turn, both Beobrand and Cynan have their loyalties tested to breaking point.</p><p>Who will survive the battle for a united Northumbria, and who will pay the ultimate price for lord and land?</p><p><b>Praise for Matthew Harffy:</b></p><p>'Terrific white-knuckle action, absolutely gripping storytelling ... This is the first novel in what promises to be a fantastic new Viking series. Can't wait for the next one. Highly recommended!' Angus Donald</p>

Quotes

'Matthew Harffy's tale of England in the Dark Ages is nothing less than superb ... The tale is fast paced and violence lurks on every page' <i>Historical Novel Society</i>. <br />

'Historical fiction doesn't get much better than this' Angus Donald, author of <i>The Outlaw Chronicles</i>. <br />
