Book Review: Edwin High King of Britian

book with medieval cover
Edwin High King of Britain
By Edoardo Albert

Edwin is a king. Yet he is about to be betrayed and butchered. Edwin the long exiled king of Northumbria thought he had found sanctuary at the court of King Raedwald - his friend and now protector. But Raedwakd faces the lure of riches and the threat of bloodshed, and Edwin fears that he will be abandoned to his enemies. As Edwin contemplates his fate a mysterious messenger prophesies that he will ascend to greater heights than any of his forefathers. Can Edwin escape the fearsome warrior king who is calling for his blood? Do the Anglo-Saxon Gods of old or the new God from the sea really have the power to raise Edwin about all other kings?

Just looking at the cover of this book, I knew I was in for a treat. It is just beautiful. I absolutely love the simple black background and the gold lettering which is raised slightly is so pretty. The animal a boar I believe is striking in red.

As for how Edwin High King  of Britain is to read, I love it. It has all the thrill and suspense of one of my murder mystery like The Advent of Murder, but some of the fun historical references and the setting are what I like about books like The Dawn of Christmas. Overall this book is very well written and I can't wait to see what happens in the next ones.
