Summary

The Wulfriths. It all began with a woman.

A battle. A crown. The conqueror. The conquered. Medieval England - forever changed by the Battle of Hastings. And the rise of the formidable Wulfriths.

An honorable Norman

Chevalier Cyr D’Argent convinced himself he joined Duke William’s invasion of England to reform its church and place its rightful king on the throne. But after a decisive Norman victory, the truth of his quest is revealed when his search for fallen kin leads to a Saxon grieving a boy slain by one of his own. Certain the defiant young woman will become the pick of the plunder, he forces her off the battlefield. Following a pilgrimage of penance, Cyr returns to England to seek his missing brother and claim the barony awarded by King William who stipulates he end the rebellion on his lands. He agrees, only to discover the woman he cannot forget is among those he must vanquish - and may even be their leader.

A rebellious Saxon

On a fateful autumn day in 1066, Aelfled of Wulfen’s mistake leads to the death of her lady’s son. Unforgivable - as is the silver-haired warrior who tempts her to put a blade in his back then does the unthinkable in protecting her from his fellow Normans. Now under the usurper’s rule, faith crippled by her people’s suffering, she finds her sanctuary threatened when she becomes a pawn of the rebel leader - and destroyed when betrayal delivers her into the hands of the man who haunts her dreams. As the fires of unrest scorch lives and lands, Aelfled struggles to shield her heart as well as her people. But perhaps love can unite Normans and Saxons. Perhaps she is meant to be here...with him...for such a time as this.

Thus begins the Age of Conquest series revealing the origins of the Wulfriths of the best-selling Age of Faith series. Look out for Fearless: Book 2 in 2019.

Strange and lack of character development

I usually love tamera Leigh books but this story was hard for me to listen to. It started out interesting on the battlefield but if you are expecting the degree of depth of story and character development the Age of Faith stories had this is not it. I was extremely disappointed.

interesting characters<br /><br />

I struggled with the first few chapters, learning all of the complicated french names of family members and other characters. But as usual, with Tamara's books, the story was worth working through all of that! can't wait for the next book in this series.

Confused

I have collected many of Tamara Leigh’s books and I love these tales. And I love the connection between many of her books even though each one stands alone well. This is one of the few I have not liked. It has some good and sweet parts, but for some reason I had difficulty keeping the characters and details straight. It somehow had too many details of the times and the skirmishes between various groups of people. But I went on and chose another of her books Lady Betrayed and loved it.
