Even with the reappearance of an unwelcome enemy on england’s shores, the young king, and specifically, who attack and threaten the safety and security of England, Viking warriors, the two noblemen are far from resigned to Lady Elfrida’s power.

As her son takes the final steps to become king in actions as well as name, she’s increasingly isolated by the deaths of allies and the scheming ways of others, including the king. She’s ensured her twelve-year-old son has become king, despite the gruesome murder of his predecessor and half-brother.
