Shadow on the Crown

shadow-on-the-crownLife in Dark Age Britain 1002 A.D. – Viking raids every summer and cold and hunger every winter. Not exactly a Disney movie!

15-year old Emma is thrust into the center of this violent world with her marriage to 35-year old English king, Æthelred II. Emma is the sister to Duke Richard of Normandy and a pawn to ensure that Richard not provide shelter to Viking raiders from Denmark.

Completely unsuited to one another, Emma finds solace in winning the love and support of the English people.

Shadow on the Crown is the first in a trilogy on Queen Emma and the English throne. It is an engaging tale of romance, intrigue and Viking adventure!
