Description de l’éditeur
Beowulf is back, and in deep trouble. Not only are his usual enemies still seeking revenge for the unpleasantness surrounding the destruction of the Biggest Beer Hall Ever Built; now the Pope wants him dead as well. This entangles Beowulf in the complexities and dangers of Holy Gambling and the French Succession crisis (A clear case of too many Louis spoiling the plot!). Without even trying, Beowulf finds himself working for (and against) the French Army, The Church, The Pope, The Britons and the Evil Duke of Jutland (who may just be his Father.) Someone is going to end up King, but which of the Louis, will it be, and how will our hero without a moral compass decide?
Throw in a deadly assassin, a mysterious messenger, high stakes poker, spit roasted chicken, a perilous chase in ‘fast’ donkey carts, true love and a philosophical approach to imminent dismemberment and you are ready for the next instalment!
