Review Text

Following the triumphant conclusion of the "Grail Quest" series, Cornwall has embarked on a new medieval series. Set in England in the ninth and tenth centuries, at the time when the Danish Vikings had invaded. The story is seen through the eyes of a dispossessed English nobleman who was raised by the Danes, but now wants to recover his father's land. "Cornwall is a virtuoso of historical fiction" "Sunday Telegraph"
