FOR JUDGEMENT DAY IS COME... England, 1071. Five years since the crushing Norman victory at the Battle of Hastings, the country is reeling under the savage rule of the new king - 'the Bastard'. The North has been left a wasteland - no atrocity is too great to ensure William's grip upon the crown. And now he turns his cold gaze east, towards the last stronghold of the English resistance. After years of struggle, he will brook no further challenge to his power: his vast army masses and his siege machines are readied. The English have put their faith in the only man who might defeat the murderous invaders: Hereward - warrior and a master tactician. But Hereward is missing. With their hopes of victory dwindling, can the English rebels find the leader who seems to have abandoned them before William the Bastard begins his final, devastating assault that will truly be the end of days... Hereward: End of Days is the third book in James Wilde's six book Hereward series. His story continues in Hereward: Wolves of New Rome. Have you read Hereward and Hereward: The Devil's Army - the first two books in the series?
