The Outlaw

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

"The Normans called them wild men..."

1070 AD: The English rebels in the north have sacked Jorvik and defied William the Conqueror. Now they must face the wrath of the brutal Norman king, bent on avenging the slaughter of his army. Meanwhile fresh revolts erupt all over England, from distant Northumbria to the borderlands of Wales. The war of the silvatici, outlaws and broken men of the forest, has begun.

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...
