Description

<h2><b>Beobrand finds himself caught between the perilous intrigues of royalty and the Church in this latest thrilling Bernicia Chronicles adventure.</b> </h2><p>AD 652. Beobrand has been ordered to lead a group of pilgrims to the holy city of Rome. Chief among them is Wilfrid, a novice of the Church with some surprisingly important connections. Taking only Cynan and some of his best men, Beobrand hopes to make the journey through Frankia quickly and return to Northumbria without delay, though the road is long and perilous.</p><p>But where Beobrand treads, menace is never far behind. The lands of the Merovingian kings are rife with intrigue. The queen of Frankia is unpopular and her ambitious schemes, though benevolent, have made her powerful enemies. Soon Wilfrid, and Beobrand, are caught up in sinister plots against the royal house.</p><p>After interrupting a brutal ambush in a forest, Beobrand and his trusted gesithas find their lives on the line. Dark forces will stop at nothing to seize control of the Frankish throne, and Beobrand is thrown into a deadly race for survival through foreign lands where he cannot be sure who is friend and who is foe.</p><p>The only certainty is that if he is to save his men, thwart the plots, and unmask his enemies, blood will flow.</p><h2><b>Praise for Matthew Harffy:</b> </h2><p>'A brilliant characterization of a difficult hero in a dangerous time. Excellent!' <b>Christian Cameron</b> <br />'He is really proving himself the rightful heir to Gemmell's crown' <b>Jemahl Evans</b> <br />'Harffy has a real winner on his hands... A genuinely superb novel' <b>Steven McKay</b></p>
