The Exile

(The third book in the Bloody Hand series)
A novel by

“They called their new land England...”

1076 AD. William the Conqueror reigns supreme in England. After many years of bitter warfare, all his enemies are dead or defeated. The Norman king has imposed an iron grip on the land. His dreaded castles, filled with brutal foreign soldiers, cover the kingdom from sea to sea.

Yet some of the English refuse to accept defeat. A band of nobles decide to leave England forever and go into exile. These men collect a fleet of three hundred ships and take an army of picked men, to find a new homeland where they can live in freedom. An epic voyage lies ahead...

The tale of this bloody and brutal time is written by Thorkell Skaldsson, once a bard in the service of Waltheof, the last English earl. In old age, thousands of miles from England, he still mourns the conquest of his homeland. Before he dies, Thorkell has vowed to write the truth...of Duke William, Harold Hardrada and Sweyn of Denmark, of the Emperor Alexios and the mighty city of Micklegarth...of the fall and rise of the English.

The Northman has one last saga to tell...
