Edwin is a king. Yet he is about to be betrayed and butchered. Edwin, the long-exiled king of Northumbria, thought he had found sanctuary at the court of King Raedwald - his friend, and now protector. But Raedwald faces the lure of riches and the threat of bloodshed, and Edwin fears that he will be abandoned to his enemies. As Edwin contemplates his fate, a mysterious messenger prophesies that he will ascend to greater heights than any of his forefathers. Can Edwin escape the fearsome warrior king who is calling for his blood? Do the Anglo-Saxon Gods of old, or the new God from across the sea, really have the power to raise Edwin above all other kings? This is the epic first book in The Northumbrian Thrones trilogy by Time Out journalist and historian Edoardo Albert.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Edwin: High King of Britain, brings to life the heroic age of our distant past, a splendid novel that leaves the reader wanting more.' -- Bernard Cornwell
"A fast-paced and gripping tale, reclaiming one of our great national figures from the shadows of history." -- Justin Hill
"Albert's offering is a highly entertaining and refreshing work of historical fiction thanks to his emphasis on the precarious intersection of religion and identity." * Publishers Weekly *

“Perfect medieval story”

If, like me, you’ve ever wished you could travel back in time and observe society in another era, then this is certainly a book for you. Especially if you have ever wondered what life was like in Anglo-Saxon Britain.... More
