Conqueror

{4.5.5} Conqueror by Stephen Baxter, published in 2007

Another tour of the history of England with stops in 607, 793, 872, and 1066. This one shows how invaders become locals within a few generations and then are threatened by other invaders. There’s a different prophecy than in the first book and various people are trying to make sure that it comes true. It’s perhaps a bit more challenging than a book with one set of characters all the way through, but I found it fascinating.

I also reviewed the previous book, Emperor.
