An adventure worthy of legend, for fans of Game of Thrones and Rangers Apprentice
When fifteen-year-old AEthelflaed is suddenly and reluctantly betrothed to an ally of her father, the king, her world will never be the same. For as a noblewoman in the late 800s, she will be expected to be meek and unlearned-and Flaed is anything but meek and unlearned. Her marriage will bring peace to her land, but while her royal blood makes her a valuable asset, she is also a vulnerable target. And when enemies attack, Flaed must draw upon her skills and fight to lead her people to safety and prove her worth as a princess-and as a warrior."

About Rebecca Tingle

Rebecca Tingle was born in Utah as the oldest child in a large family—three boys and five girls. After earning an M.A. in English with a medieval specialization at Brigham Young University, she went to Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar to study Old English literature. Tingle returned home to Utah having written the first few chapters of a novel about Æthelflæd of Mercia. She worked for a year as a member of the Brigham Young University Admissions Committee before marrying Bryce Tingle, a Canadian lawyer, and moving to Calgary, Alberta. There she finished her novel, The Edge on the Sword, and began a second book, Far Traveler. Rebecca and Bryce are the parents of two daughters.
