(The second book in the Leopards of Normandy series)
A novel by

 
 
David Churchill's The Leopards of Normandy trilogy continues with Duke, as William of Normandy inherits his father's title and assumes command of his lands. Churchill's style brings to mind the vibrancy of Conn Iggulden and will enthrall fans of Bernard Cornwell and Ben Kane.

William the Bastard, boy Duke of Normandy, is alone in a world filled with enemies. His father, Robert, is dead, and the men chosen to protect William are falling prey, one by one, to a conspiracy controlled and manipulated by a man who has spent a lifetime being mocked and ridiculed but now burns with the need to be feared and obeyed.

In England two women, equally matched in their beauty, strength and limitless ambition, seek power through their sons. They wield no swords and command no armies, but their struggles for the crown are as bitter as any war. And between them stands Godwin, Earl of Wessex, seeking to build a dynasty that will outlast them all.

One day William will join the struggle for dominion over England. But for now he must fight just to survive, to reach manhood and then to impose his will on those who would oppose him. Including the young woman he wants for his wife.
