Product description

Review

"A rousing retelling of a singular event, as seen through the eyes of three leaders on a momentous trek, this latest historical novel by Iggulden will be of interest to both young and old readers of military and ancient history."-- "Historical Novel Review"

Praise for Conn Iggulden:

"A well-researched tale of heroism and hardship, honor and betrayal in which anyone's life can disappear with a filth-tipped arrow or the slash of a kopis. Exciting fare, a yarn well-spun."-- "Kirkus Reviews"

"Conn Iggulden is a grand storyteller."-- "USA Today"

"Devotees of the ancient world will relish this exciting historical novel."-- "Booklist"

"Having already taken on Julius Caesar, Genghis Khan, and the War of the Roses, Iggulden successfully dramatizes the life of Dunstan, Abbot of Glastonbury and confidant of King Aethelstan, the grandson of Alfred the Great. Immerses the reader."-- "Publishers Weekly"

"Superbly plotted and paced. An absolutely cracking story. The pace is nail-biting and the set dressing magnificent. Iggulden has created an intriguingly complex saint--flawed, spiteful, and unreliable as the teller of his own tale. Through his eyes we watch the story of the making of England."-- "The Times (London)"

About the Author

Conn Iggulden is one of the most successful authors of historical fiction writing today. Among many other bestselling novels, he is the author of The Abbot's Tale, The Falcon of Sparta, The Gates of Athens, and Protector, all available from Pegasus Books. Conn lives in London.

Despite finding time to write historical novels and The Dangerous Book for Boys, Conn Iggulden is in some ways better known as a trainer of Tollins. His Tollin troupe, "Small and Mighty," are famous in Tasmania, where they often play to packed houses. "It used to be just a hobby," he says, "but when you've seen a display of Tollin synchronized flying, you realize it's your life's work. Also, they can be transported in shoe boxes, so it's pretty cheap to get around."
