About the book

It begins with the death of the last Roman and ends with the crowning of a king, the birth of a new order.



As the centuries between these two events pass, as Britain emerges from the ruins of Roman rule to become a vibrant, rich power in its own right, as invasions ebb and flow and Kings rule and die, a single thread is spun and stretched.



A prophecy found in the shadow of Hadrian's crumbling wall, a prophecy preserved by the monks at Lindisfarne. A prophecy remembered, a prophecy handed down.



A prophecy that speaks of the cross, of dragons from the north. Of a new world and of a new empire.



A prophecy fulfilled in one remarkable year: 1066.



CONQUEROR is a fast moving historical thriller that casts a bright light onto a shadowy period of British history and brings it to vibrant life. Steeped in blood and violence this was also a time of artistic endeavour, a time of nation building and law-giving.



And it is a time of chance, where history can be shaped by the Weaver . . .
