Harold Godwineson, the Last Anglo-Saxon King, owed everything to his father. Who was this Godwine, first Earl of Wessex and known as the Kingmaker? Was he an unscrupulous schemer, using King and Witan to gain power? Or was he the greatest of all Saxon Earls, protector of the English against the hated Normans? The answer depends on who you ask. He was befriended by the Danes, raised up by Canute the Great, given an Earldom and a wife from the highest Danish ranks. He sired nine children, among them four Earls, a Queen and a future King. Along with his power came a struggle to keep his enemies at bay, and Godwine's best efforts were brought down by the misdeeds of his eldest son Swegn. Although he became father-in-law to a reluctant Edward the Confessor, his fortunes dwindled as the Normans gained prominence at court. Driven into exile, Godwine regathered his forces and came back even stronger, only to discover that his second son Harold was destined to surpass him in renown and glory.

The world is broken... Corban wants nothing more than to be a warrior under King Brenin's rule - to protect and serve. But that day will come all too soon. And the price he pays will be in blood. Evnis has sacrificed - too much it seems. But what he wants - the power to rule -- will soon be in his grasp. And nothing will stop him once he has started on his path. Veradis is the newest member of the warband for the High Prince, Nathair. He is one of the most skilled swordsman to come out of his homeland, yet he is always under the shadow of his older brother. Nathair has ideas - and a lot of plans. Many of them don't involve his father, the High King Aquilus. Nor does he agree with his father's idea to summon his fellow kings to council. The Banished Lands has a violent past where armies of men and giants clashed in battle, but now giants are seen, the stones weep blood and giant wyrms are stirring. Those who can still read the signs see a threat far greater than the ancient wars. For if the Black Sun gains ascendancy, mankind's hopes and dreams will fall to dust... ...and it can never be made whole again. MALICE is a dark epic fantasy tale of blind greed, ambition, and betrayal.

The Banished Lands are engulfed in war and chaos. The cunning Queen Rhin has conquered the west and High King Nathair has the cauldron, most powerful of the seven treasures. At his back stands the scheming Calidus and a warband of the Kadoshim, dread demons of the Otherworld. They plan to bring Asroth and his host of the Fallen into the world of flesh, but to do so they need the seven treasures. Nathair has been deceived but now he knows the truth. He has choices to make, choices that will determine the fate of the Banished Lands. Elsewhere the flame of resistance is growing - Queen Edana finds allies in the swamps of Ardan. Maquin is loose in Tenebral, hunted by Lykos and his corsairs. Here he will witness the birth of a rebellion in Nathair's own realm. Corban has been swept along by the tide of war. He has suffered, lost loved ones, sought only safety from the darkness. But he will run no more. He has seen the face of evil and he has set his will to fight it. The question is, how? With a disparate band gathered about him - his family, friends, giants, fanatical warriors, an angel and a talking crow he begins the journey to Drassil, the fabled fortress hidden deep in the heart of Forn Forest. For in Drassil lies the spear of Skald, one of the seven treasures, and here it is prophesied that the Bright Star will stand against the Black Sun.

But can a 17 year old boy with an ill-equipped army challenge the Conqueror for his birthright, the throne of England?

From the New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Lost Stars and Bloodline comes a thrilling sci-fi adventure that Kass Morgan, bestselling author of The 100 series, calls "startlingly original and achingly romantic...nothing short of masterful." She's a soldier -- Noemi Vidal is willing to risk anything to protect her planet, Genesis, including her own life. To their enemies on Earth, she's a rebel. He's a machine -- Abandoned in space for years, utterly alone, Abel's advanced programming has begun to evolve. He wants only to protect his creator, and to be free. To the people of Genesis, he's an abomination. Noemi and Abel are enemies in an interstellar war, forced by chance to work together as they embark on a daring journey through the stars. Their efforts would end the fighting for good, but they're not without sacrifice. The stakes are even higher than either of them first realized, and the more time they spend together, the more they're forced to question everything they'd been taught was true. An epic and romantic adventure, perfect for fans of The Lunar Chronicles and Illuminae.

Edgar Atheling has been betrayed by his allies and defeated in his attempt to win back the throne of England from William the Conqueror. The Normans hunted for him across the north of England, devastating the land in the process. He only just escaped to the sanctuary of the King of the Scots. Once there he is tempted to give up the fight. But there are still some in England who resist the Normans. Edgar decides to return home to lead the battle. He allies himself with the King of the Danes and Hereward the Wake and stakes all on a gamble to win back his birthright. William invades Scotland and Edgar is forced to flee to Europe. Once there he discovers new friends and new enemies. But William decides to put an end to Edgar's resistance once and for all. "Once more into the fray as Edgar continues his struggle to reclaim his throne from William the Bastard." "Disowned by his brother-in-law, betrayed by the vikings, Edgar lurches and stumbles from one crisis to the next." Praise for the earlier books in the series: Resistance. Martin Lake is a terrific writer and deserves to be better-known. I've read plenty of historical fiction and much of it is heavy-going. I couldn't put this one down! This book is a good read, a fast paced historical adventure utilizing colourful and complex characters to tell a truly dramatic story. I really enjoyed the character development in this book, especially the complex and occasionally subtle interplay between Edgar and William the Conqueror. One of the better novels on the English resistance after 1066. Edgar Atheling is a complex, elusive and frustrating historical character but that allows for some scope in trying to portray him within a novel such as this. Martin Lake is convincing in his characterization of the key figures including Edgar. Did not know what I was getting into - but wow- how did I miss this one - what a great read, face paced, plenty of action and the right amount of detail to be convincing. Went straight on to the second book which was equally brilliant and can't wait for the next one. Wasteland. Every bit as good as its prequel, The Lost King: Resistance. Don't be put off if you don't like history. This story will appeal to anyone, whether interested in history or not. I wanted Edgar to win, even though I knew he wouldn't. Writing style, characterisation, storyline all first rate. Martin Lake has written an extremely tense historical thriller as we follow the devastation of England and the despair of Edgar as he sees his country suffering and his own life in danger. Now I am waiting to read the next volume in this excellent trilogy. A great sequel in the story of the real king of England when William the Conqueror took over. Believable characters, gripping story, from a history I didn't know. Makes me root for King Edgar even though history tells us he doesn't win. Can't wait for the third book!

From #1 Bestselling author Morgan Rice comes a sweeping new epic fantasy series: RISE OF THE DRAGONS (KINGS AND SORCERERS—Book 1).

As she struggles to understand her special skills, her mysterious inner power, she realizes she is different than the others. But a secret is being kept from her about her birth and the prophecy surrounding her, leaving her to wonder who she really is. When Kyra comes of age and the local lord comes to take her away, her father wants to wed her off to save her.

On the far side of the kingdom, Merk, a mercenary striving to leave behind his dark past, quests through the wood to become a Watcher of the Towers and help guard the Sword of Fire, the magical source of the kingdom’s power. But the Trolls want the Sword, too—and they prepare for a massive invasion that could destroy the kingdoms forever.
