No land, no crown, no plan ...
Deira has fallen. Aethelfrith, aided by Cerdic’s half brother, Hussa is triumphant and Cerdic must lead princes Edwin and Hereric over the border into foreign lands. They number a mere fifty men, women and children. They have no land, no crown, little money and no plan. There are determined enemies in pursuit behind and precious few friends in front. Cerdic must dig deep to find a way to help the Princes in Exile.
