Read full description of the books:
1066. King Harold and most of England's warriors lie dead on the battle-field. William of Normandy is marching on London with a victorious and exultant army.
Fearful and desperate, the great council of the kingdom elects a new king to unite the country against the invader.
Their choice falls on Edgar, the thirteen year old descendent of Alfred the Great.
The hopes of a nation are placed on a youngster with little experience of life. All he has to help him are a fierce intelligence, courage and the loyalty of a handful of friends.
Burdened with impossible hopes and expectations, mired in fear and treachery, Edgar begins a life-time of resistance to the Norman conquerors.
The Battle of Hastings is over. The Battle for England is about to begin.

Read information about the authorHello, I'm Martin Lake. I've been writing fiction since the age of eleven when our inventive English teacher Mr Johnson asked us to imagine that we were a Guy on a Guy Fawkes bonfire. I discovered the thrill of words and character.
My favourite authors when I was young were historical novelists like Rosemary Sutcliff and Henry Treece and a galaxy of science fiction writers. Later on I discovered the Flashman novels by George McDonald Fraser which I still consider the best of historical fiction.
I studied English Literature and History at UEA.
I have written all my life and had my first success with another story about 5th November, 'The Guy Fawkes Contest.' This was broadcast on radio and I spent more than my fee on celebrating my success.
Then one morning; revelation. I love writing and I love history. I decided to combine the two and wrote a novel about the Elizabethan spy network. There was some interest in this from publishers but not enough and it languishes still in a drawer.
I had a bad accident and could no longer drive nor turn over a paper-back book without dropping it and having to ask my wife to pick it up. My wife bought me an e-reader and shortly afterwards I discovered that I could self-publish my novels.
That was it. My life-long ambition was about to take off.
I have a series of novels set in the years following the Norman Invasion of England. Three novels are currently available:The Lost King: Resistance, Wasteland and Blood of Ironside. I am currently writing the fourth book in the series.
I have also published 'Artful' the further adventures of the young rogue in Australia and London. 'Outcasts' is about the fall of the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem and the Third Crusade.
My novel 'A Love Most Dangerous' will be reprinted by Lake Union Publishing on 27 January 2015. It tells the tale of Alice Petherton, a mistress of King Henry VIII. It is available as an e-book, paperback and audio.
I also have some collections of short stories on ebooks: For King and Country, The Big School, Nuggets and Mr Toad's Wedding.
I won first prize in the Kenneth Grahame Society competition to write a story based on 'The Wind in the Willows.' You can get the collection, 'The Wind in the Willows Short Stories' from Amazon or Lulu.
