After getting into a brawl with Athelstan the future king of England, fourteen-year-old Edwin certainly does not expect to become his body-servant.

But as tensions between the warring kingdom grow and power shifts over the years, Edwin must protect Athelstan with his life in the fight to unite England. But will Athelstan and his Saxon army succeed against the Scots, the Vikings of Dublin and the Welsh of Strathclyde?This thrilling, dramatic tale is packed with great characters and insight into the world of Saxon Britain. The Flashbacks series offers dramatic stories set in key moments of history, perfect for introducing children to historical topics.
