MJ Porter

Audiobook narrated by Matt Coles


From bestselling author, MJ Porter comes the tale of the mighty pagan king, Penda of Mercia.

The year is AD641, and the great Oswald of Northumbria, bretwalda over England, must battle against an alliance of the old Britons and the Saxons led by Penda of the Hwicce, the victor of Hæ∂feld nine years before, the only Saxon leader seemingly immune to Oswald's beguiling talk of the new Christianity spreading through England from both the north and the south. Alliances will be made and broken, and the victory will go to the man most skilled in warcraft and statecraft. The ebb and flow of battle will once more redraw the lines of the petty kingdoms stretching across the British Isles. There will be another victor and another bloody loser.
