Overview

End of Days: A Novel of Medieval England by James Wilde

The forgotten saga of England's real-life Robin Hood—Hereward—continues in this new brutal and thrilling novel set during the latter days of the Norman Conquest.England, 1071.
Five years have passed since the crushing Norman victory at the Battle of Hastings. The country reels under the savage rule of the new king, the one they call 'the Bastard.' The North has been left a wasteland—villages razed, innocents put to the sword, land stolen. It seems 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.
In their fortress on the Isle of Ely, the English have put their faith in the only man who might defeat the murderous invaders. He is called Hereward. He is a warrior and a master tactician - as adept at slaughter as his enemy and plans have been been set in motion for a bloody uprising that will sweep the Norman king off the throne once and for all.
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?Here is a tale of heroism and treachery—and the bloodiest rebellion England has ever known.
