GODS AND KINGS: PAGAN WARRIOR
From bestselling author, MJ Porter comes the tale of the mighty pagan king, Penda of Mercia.
Penda, a warrior of immense renown, has much to prove if he is to rule the Mercian kingdom of his dead father and prevent the neighbouring king of Northumbria from claiming it.
Unexpectedly allying with the British kings, Penda races to battle the alliance of the Northumbrian king, unsure if his brother stands with him or against him as they seek battle glory for themselves, and the right to rule gained through bloody conquest.
There will be a victor and a bloody loser, and a king will rise from the ashes of the great and terrible battle of Hædfeld
PRAISE FOR MJ PORTER
"M. J. Porter has written a story of one battle – Haedfeld – which will change the face of England. And written it very well indeed, for the dialogue is sharp and whilst the day-to-day descriptions are fairly sparse, the telling of the battle is gripping." HISTORICAL NOVELS REVIEW
"M J Porter brings the period to life that you feel you are really part of the story." Amazon Reviewer
"First class story combining historical facts and fiction well in a wonderful novel." Amazon Reviewer
