In Wessex, Mercia, and East Anglia, a precarious peace reigns. The kingdoms are ruled by King Alfred’s son, Edward, and his powerful daughter, Aethelflaed. However, the restless Northmen are mounting raids all over the place, eyeing the rich farms and affluent churches.
Northern Mercia is ruled by Uhtred of Bebbanburg, the kingdom’s strongest warrior, from the walled city of Chester. However, forces are forming against him. The Irish-allied Northmen, led by the ferocious warrior Ragnall Ivarson, are soon joined by the Northumbrians, and their combined strength could be overwhelming. Despite the growing threat, Edward and Aethelflaed are hesitant to leave the security of their walls. But who can be trusted when Uhtred’s own daughter is married to Ivarson’s brother?
There will be no easy road in the conflict between family and loyalty, between personal ambition and political devotion. But a man with the courage of a warrior might be able to find it. Uhtred is such a man, and this could be his finest hour.
