1067 - the Battle of Hastings has been lost and the iron gauntlet of William the Bastard slowly throttles the life out of England. The length and breadth of the country, villages are burned and men, women and children put to the sword as the brutal new King attempts to impose his cruel will upon the unruly nation. One man stands in the way of the Norman duke's savage campaign: Hereward, warrior, master tactician, and the last hope of the English. As adept at slaughter as the imposter who sits on the throne, he has vowed to meet blood with blood and fire with fire. In a Fenlands fortress of water and wild wood, his resistance is simmering. His army of outcasts grows by the day - a devil's army that comes with the mists and the night and leaves only bones in its wake. But William is not one to be cowed. Under the command of his ruthless deputy, Ivo Taillebois - known and feared as the Butcher - the invaders will do whatever it takes to crush these rebels, even if it means burning all England to the ground. Here then is the tale of the bloodiest rebellion England has ever known -- the beginning of an epic battle that will echo down the years.
