Description

THE SHADOW OF THE RAVEN SERIES - BOOK 4 'KNOW THAT YOUR BLOODLINE FLOWS NOT FROM YOUR HEART BUT FROM THE VERY CORE OF YOUR EXISTENCE' Wessex 893 as King Alfred readies his defences against another Viking invasion. Among his many concerns his the plight of Edward, his stable boy, who he believes to be the bastard son of Matthew, a renowned warrior who died fighting for the Saxon cause. If Edward's heritage could be proved, he would stand to inherit a vast fortune which Alfred fears would then attract every fraudster in the realm. Worse still, given his noble lineage, the boy could well be used to usurp him as King. Alfred therefore sends Edward to the fortified burh at Wareham on the pretext of having him train Fleet, a magnificent black stallion so spirited it's thought to be unrideable. The boy soon proves his skill with horses but is considered too puny to be a warrior. However, when the fyrd find themselves outnumbered whilst confronting a Viking warband, Edward's quick thinking and extraordinary courage leave no doubt about his bloodline.
