This vibrant series by David Churchill, coauthor of War Cry, the upcoming Courtney novel by Wilbur Smith, is a must-listen for fans of Bernard Cornwell and Conn Iggulden.
It began with a promise. It will end at Hastings.
William of Normandy, sworn heir to the English throne, is no longer the boy duke but a loyal and proven warrior. Few dare challenge him, but England is an irresistible prize. The handsome, ambitious Harold Godwinson and the Viking Hardrada are both determined to stake a claim. William faces his greatest ever battle: deny his own destiny or conquer the land he was born to rule. History will be written in the blood of those who fall.

Keep your eye on this one, Harold
Who needs fiction? The drama of reality can often be more interesting than the imaginary. Not strictly fact and with plenty of poetic license it does contain enough knowledge and understanding of the period to make a fine faction novel.
A very good no intrusive performance by the narrator that adds flesh to the characters.
It would be a full five star from me but for the unnecessary intrusion of . . . . sex. Descriptive sex should be both well done and serve a purpose. Here it is neither. It's omission would detract nothing from the book and one has the feeling that it has been added in a misguided attempt at 'popular ' fiction. Perhaps a. 'Game of Thrones' syndrome.
