Summary

From author MJ Porter, comes a thrilling new hero.

They sent 300 warriors to kill one man. It wasn’t enough.

Mercia lies broken but not beaten, her alliance with Wessex in tatters.

Coelwulf, a fierce and bloody warrior, hears whispers that Mercia has been betrayed from his home in the west. He fears no man, especially not the Vikings sent to hunt him down.

To discover the truth of the rumours he hears, Coelwulf must travel to the heart of Mercia, and what he finds there will determine the fate of Mercia, as well as his own.

“They better still live. If they don’t, I’ll kill them myself.”

I really enjoyed the story overall and will definitely seek out the rest of the series even if I did get a little tired of hearing the word “seax” and hope in future books it can be used with less frequency.
The narration was great and paced really well. My only critique would be that it felt a little ‘Southend’ at times, there wasn’t a massive distinction between character voices and battle intensity wasn’t really told differently to the rest of the story.
Even with its very minor criticisms, it’s still a great story and I enjoyed it.
This is my honest opinion on a free review copy.

Coelwulf's Battle For Mercica

I received a free copy of this audiobook from AudiobookBoom in exchange for an honest review.
I loved this audiobook. I was distracted by the profanity, but I didn't let it ruin the experience for me. I figure it was an uncensored view in the trenches with Coelwulf and his men. Despite the language and murderous ways, the characters were likable and believable. The humanity the would be king of Mercia showed his men was evident. The narration was well done and the story was a flashback of the previous month leading up to the incident depicted in the prologue. It was very cleverly done by the author because what the reader assumes isn't necessarily the outcome.
