1062, a time many fear is the End of Days. With the English King Edward heirless and ailing, across the grey seas in Normandy the brutal William the Bastard waits for the moment when he can drown England in a tide of blood. The ravens of war are gathering. But as the king's closest advisors scheme and squabble amongst themselves, hopes of resisting the ambition of the Norman duke come to rest with just one man: Hereward.But in his country's hour of greatest need, his enemies at court have made him outlaw. To stay alive--and a free man--he must carve a bloody swathe from the frozen lands outside the court.The tale of a man whose deeds will become the stuff of legend, this is also the story of two mismatched allies: Hereward the man of war, and Alric, a man of peace, a monk. One will risk everything to save the land he loves, the other to save his friend's soul . . .

Picked up this book because of the cover. I am a fan of pre-modern European historical fiction. Never heard of Hereward but I enjoyed the book immensely. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series

Enjoyed it immensely. Picked it up simply because of the cover. Then I found out it was about Hereward, a figure I'd heard of but knew virtually nothing about. I related to the warrior because like him I'd come up from some pretty bloody beginnings [emotionally] and fought my way up to mastering myself and taking the honorable path of knighthood. Enjoyed it? Read it four times; I'd say I enjoyed it!

Probably THE first historical fiction novel I have ever seen. Besides the Magic Treehouse. But those don't count as novels.
