Beobrand has land, men, and riches. He should be content.
When Penda of Mercia marches a war host into the southern kingdoms, Beobrand and his men are thrown into the midst of the conflict. Beobrand soon finds himself fighting for his life and his honour.
In the chaos that grips the south, dark secrets are exposed, bringing into question much that Beobrand had believed true. Can he unearth the answers and exact the vengeance he craves? Or will the blood-price prove too high, even for a warrior of his battle-fame and skill?
Killer of Kings is the fourth in Matthew Harffy’s Bernicia Chronicles series.
