England, 1009 AD: The Danes under Sweyn Forkbeard and his son Cnut prepare their fleet for an attack on London. Æthelred, King of England, thus faces a threat he does not have enough to counter. The fall of London and the conquest of England by the Danes seem certain. But when the need is greatest, the English king receives unexpected help from the far north. Dragon ships appear on the horizon of the Atlantic. It is the arrival of 800 Norwegian Vikings.
This is the eighth book in the eight-volume series „IN DARK AGES“ by Charles W. Whistler.
IN DARK AGES
The stories of the „IN DARK AGES“ series by Charles Watts Whistler take place in medieval England and span a period of over 400 years. The series consists of a total of eight volumes.
The Prince of Cornwall
War of the Saxon Kings
Wulfric the Weapon Thane
Viking of the King
The individual volumes are complete, self-contained books that can be read independently of the other volumes of the series. The overall connection of the series results from the chronological order and embedding of the events in the historical context.
Whistler places great emphasis in his books on a realistic portrayal of life in the early and high Middle Ages. The archaic style of language he uses creates an atmosphere of harshness and gloom.
Experience individual destinies, love, betrayal and struggle. Get an authentic and vivid impression of England in the dark times of the Middle Ages. And see how the Norsemen shook the world of that time.
Eight battles to the death. Eight journeys back in time, with a look at real people in a bygone era. Eight independent Viking stories that will really captivate you.
