‘A fast paced, action packed medieval adventure; a boy becomes a man during one of the most tumultuous pivot points of English history.’ J.A. Ironside, author of The King's Knight series
Aelfric, Earl of Huntendune lies dead, butchered for refusing to forfeit his lands to his Norman overlords.
And now, for taking vengeance against his lord’s killers, Thurkill, former huscarl of King Harold and loyal Saxon warrior, must leave everything behind before King William’s soldiers return to claim the blood price.
Landless, lordless and now homeless, Thurkill journeys west with his pregnant wife, Hild, and his five hearth-warriors to search for peace and security far away from the hated enemy.
To his horror, however, the warrior finds himself at the centre of a bitter struggle between Saxon and Norman, on the border between England and Wales - between the forces of Eadric the Wild and the Norman Earl of Hereford.
But when word reaches him of a rebellion against the Norman king, Thurkill realises his duty lies elsewhere. Perhaps now he can finally assuage the guilt for having failed King Harold at Senlac by helping his son to take the throne.
Thurkill must cross swords with the Normans once again. And in doing so, he must face his nemesis, Robert FitzGilbert, across the field of battle.
This time, however, there can be only one survivor
Paul Bernardi is the author of The Huscarl Chronicles and To the Devil His Due.
Praise for Paul Bernardi:
‘Thurkill’s Revenge, a bravura tale set against the backdrop of the Norman Conquest, presents the exploits of a Saxon bodyguard in cinematic detail. The narrative weaves a rich weft and warp of fact and fiction - the protagonist Thurkill’s father, Scalpi is one of the few Saxon fighting men known to have faced the Normans at Senlac Ridge, Hastings – and the author displays an historian’s eye for authentic detail in a galloping read.’ Paul Bannister, author of Storm of Arrows
‘Thurkill is a warrior with a heart and soul, a man of honour and mettle that Beobrand would be proud to have alongside him in the shieldwall.’ Matthew Harffy, author of the Bernicia Chronicles
‘The cataclysmic events of 1066 seen through the eyes of a strapping youth — a gripping tale of courage and revenge.’ Alistair Forrest, author of Libertas

Apart from that the baddy was unbelievable even though ubiquitous.
Read Bernard Cornwell if you like mediaeval battles.
