SHADOW on the CROWN
England, A.D. 1002
In a world lit by fire and ruled by the sword, a fifteen-year-old girl kneels to receive an English crown – an act that will echo down the ages.
Within that circlet of gold the ambitions of four powerful men are about to collide, for this young queen is the key to all that they desire.
To a calculating Norman duke she is a blood tie to the wealthiest monarchy in Europe. To a haunted English king she is a guarantee of allies against a fierce and brutal enemy. To Denmark’s Viking ruler she is a prize worth ten times her weight in silver. To a young ætheling of England she is a temptation to forbidden passion.
Her name is Emma…and she will change the course of history.
