AD 636, Anglo-Saxon Britain: Beobrand has land, men, and riches. He should be content. And yet he cannot find peace until his enemies are food for the ravens. But before Beobrand can embark on his bloodfeud, King Oswald orders him southward, to escort holy men bearing sacred relics. When Penda of Mercia marches a warhost into the southern kingdoms, Beobrand and his men are thrown into the midst of the conflict. Beobrand soon finds himself fighting for his life and his honor. In the chaos that grips the south, dark secrets are exposed, bringing into question much that Beobrand had believed true. Can he unearth the answers and exact the vengeance he craves? Or will the blood-price prove too high, even for a warrior of his battle-fame and skill?

Mr. Harffy has another hit. In this fourth installment of The Bernicia Chronicles, Beobrand finds himself and his men involved in a war against the ruthless Penda of Mercia. He had not planned to fight in this battle but got caught up in events and politics beyond his control while accompanying a group of holy men to a monastery. Meanwhile, he must leave his land and family in the care of trusted friends knowing there is always a chance that enemies could sweep in from other kingdoms and wreak havoc. Matthew Harffy knows how to write Medieval battle scenes. The violence and gore fairly leap off the pages. Some of the descriptions were, quite honestly, hard to read, but as I have said before, this is how things were during this period. It was not often pretty. I am thoroughly enjoying this series. I am starting Book V and there will be a Book VI next year. Way too long to wait, IMO, but that's how it is. This is historical fiction at its finest.
