Synopsis

Before Arthur, before Alfred, England was born in blood and fire.

Britain, 447 A.D. The war in the north is drawing to a close. King Talorc has been placed on the throne of the Pictish tribes and for Hengest and Horsa it is time to return home. But much has changed since they set out to earn their kingdom. Lord Vertigernus has been deposed by his two sons and forces conspire to sunder the alliance between Briton and Saxon. 

Hengest’s daughter, Hronwena, embarks on a perilous quest to save the life of a young boy and thwart her odious husband while her sons-in-law invite the famed Bishop Germanus to the shores of Britain, beginning the great battle that will define the age. Soon the whole land is thrown into bloody strife. With loyalties divided, Hengest and Horsa embark on their final battle and history hangs in the balance. 

So begins the last chapter in the saga of Hengest and Horsa in which treachery rears its ugly head and loyalties are overturned. Love and honour are lost on the battlefield and only through suffering and heartbreak can the ultimate triumph be achieved; the foundation of England.
