The Bernicia Chronicles Boxset: I-VI by Matthew Harffy
 The Bernicia Chronicles

'Historical fiction doesn't get much better than this.' Angus Donald

We first encounter doughty warrior Beobrand in The Serpent Sword as he fights for King Edwin in Northumbria, while seeking vengeance for his brother's death. In The Cross and the Curse, Beobrand returns home a hero after a stunning victory against the Waelisc, but despite riches and fame for his skill in battle, he is soon surrounded by enemies and treachery on all sides. Blood and Blade sees Beobrand escorting a princess of Wessex to her new home in Northumbria, as bride of King Oswald. With Oswald away fighting the Picts, and old enemies closing in, it is up to Beobrand to overcome the plots and perils in their path and get his new queen safely home.

In Killer of Kings, Beobrand finds himself caught up in bloody conflict as Penda of Mercia marches on the southern kingdoms just as Beobrand is sent on an important mission by his king. Warrior of Woden sees Beobrand, now a renowned warlord, fight for his king, Oswald of Northumbria, as Penda invades the kingdom in a clash of pagans and Christians and a battle for the soul of Albion. Storm of Steel sees Beobrand sail to lands he once knew on a perilous quest to avenge a girl kidnapped by slavers.
