9780099558323: The Splintered Kingdom: 1066: The Bloody Aftermath (The Conquest)

This brilliant second novel, featuring the hero of Sworn Sword, begins in June 1069 on the war-torn Welsh Marches and ends with William the Conqueror's brutal campaign known as the Harrying of the North.
 
The story begins on the Welsh Marches, where Tancred has been given land by his new lord, Robert Malet, in return for his services in the battle for York. Now a lord in his own right, he has knights of his own to command and a manor to call home. But all is far from peaceful. The Welsh are joining forces with the English against the Normans and when skirmishes turn into a full scale battle at Shrewsbury, Tancred is betrayed by a rival border lord and taken prisoner by the Welsh. Meanwhile the woman he loves is taken hostage by enemy English forces and the Vikings invade the east coast. Never has Tancred faced a more impossible situation.

About the Author:

JAMES AITCHESON was born in Wiltshire in 1985 and read History at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, where began his fascination with the medieval period and the Norman Conquest in particular. This is his second novel.

Review:

"There are enough swordplay and chases amid the historical detail to warrant returning to this series or even starting it. Aficionados of tales about England's historic warriors, in the tradition of Bernard Cornwell, will enjoy this muscular outing" - Library Journal

"An exciting and suspenseful post-Norman conquest saga filled with ambition, greed and betrayals.. history buffs and adventure fans will definitely want to read all the exciting tales in this saga." - Fresh Fiction

" The second terrific Tancred Conqueror era historical is a great thriller that brings to life the eleventh century bitter hostilities that remain heated several years after Hastings" - The Midwest Book Review

"A vigorously written, well researched tale of post-conquest England told through Norman eyes, with a rich, detailed setting, plenty of exciting battles, and a protagonist/narrator who is a real pleasure to read." - Historical Novels Review
