Today I am excited to welcome Edoardo Albert to my blog. He is the author of the Northumbrian Thrones series, which started off with a bang with Edwin: High King of Britain. He is here today to talk about the release of the second book in this series featuring Oswald.
As befits a young prince, Oswald learns to fight. However, Aidan’s example attracts him and he is on the point of deciding to become a monk when news reaches Iona that his half brother, Eanfrith, has been killed by Cadwallon, the king who defeated Edwin. Oswald sails back to Northumbria and meets Cadwallon in battle, defeating him and killing him.
Oswald, now undisputed king of Northumbria, gives Aidan the island of Lindisfarne as his base. But Penda, the last great pagan king in England, is raising troops against him…Oswald: Return of the King is currently available for preorder from Amazon US or is available at Amazon UK.
