Kings of the North
Forge, Hardbound, July 2010
In the final book of the Corban Loosestrife series, Raef Corbansson returns to England and fulfills his destiny. In a kind of historical slipstream the novel weaves fantastic elements through the bloody reign of Ethelred the Unready and the coming of Canute the Great, who isn't so great, yet. The fantasy captures the broad ideas of neoplatonism, and there's a wicked alien based on the conceit of Boltzmann's Brain.
