Then when that is finished self publish it or send to a more Aspiring writer should write the book they want to write not what they think the market wants. Then when that is finished self publish it or send to agents/publishers and immediately begin writing the next book/5(4).   This is the seventh book in the Earls of Mercia series (main series), charting the history of the House of Leofwine, the only noble family to hold power for over a century in the turbulent final years of Anglo-Saxon England, a feat not even accomplished by the ruling English House of Wessex or the ruling Danish/English House of Swein Forkbeard.

      The story of the Ealdorman of the Hwicce, Leofwine, continues in book 5 of the Earls of Mercia series. Ealdorman Leofwine, bereaved and betrayed by the new Danish King of England, hides away from the politics of the Witan, desperate to forget his past links with Cnut and his father Swein only Cnut won’t let his most trusted ealdorman go quite so easily. Cearl (or Ceorl) was an early king of Mercia who ruled during the early part of the 7th century, until about He is the first Mercian king mentioned by Bede in his Historia ecclesiastica gentis was a Northumbrian who was hostile to Mercia, and historian Robin Fleming speculates that as "ceorl" means "rustic" in Old English, his name may have been a joke.

    Mercia was one of the great seven Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of England, alongside East Anglia, Essex, Kent, Northumbria Sussex and Wessex. Based around its capital of Tamworth, Mercia went through rapid expansion throughout the 6th and 7th centuries to be one of the ‘big three’ kingdoms of England along with Northumbria and Wessex.

An all together good book but could benefit from a bit of colour. All books on this subject are of course now dated as the finding and evaluation of the hoard will change the perspective on Mercia, about which little was written in its own lifetime.

The Lost Tales of Mercia gives back stories on many of the characters you will encounter in the other books. On it's own it was a bit hard to follow, jumping around in time and from character to character, it read like a collection of independent short stories that all I unfortunately read this book before starting the Sons of Mercia series, so /5.
