Praise for The Last King

"I really loved this book, great strong central characters that grow on you. Fantastic read, the book had me gripped. Excellent storyline , fast-paced, full of action, bloody action and violence you feel like your stood in the shield walk or charging on a horse with the blood & sweat of man & beast around you as you help battle the impossible odds. The stories main character Coelwulf is a true warrior of royal blood & the only man with the skills & presence to pull the lords of Mercia together. He stands tall with his band of warriors & draws men to him to do battle. A true hero of old." Stacy T, Netgalley Reviewer

"To say this book is excellent would be an understatement. it’s a blood and gore fest for any fan of the period." Amazon Reviewer
