The dying King Edward begins to lose influence over his successors and their supporters, causing political chaos once more. There are two probable heirs (perhaps more) and doubts about the former separate states of Wessex and Mercia remaining united. Despite attempts to drag him into the political conflict, Uhtred of Bebbanburg is only concerned with his beloved Northumbria’s continued independence from southern rule.
But an oath is a serious, almost sacred commitment, and Uhtred and Aethelstan, his former comrade in war and now a possible king, had exchanged one. Uhtred considered ignoring the oath’s demands and remaining in his northern fastness, leaving the quarrelling Anglo-Saxons to their own devices. However, an attack on Uhtred by a key supporter of one of the contenders, as well as an unexpected call for assistance from another, pulls Uhtred and a small band of warriors south, into the battle for kingship – and the fate of England.
