THE WOLF OF MIDNIGHT is the thrilling final instalment in M. K. Hume's Tintagel trilogy, not to be missed by fans of George R R Martin and Bernard Cornwell. This gripping conclusion takes readers on a journey of bravery and brutality within tribal Britain and throughout the Roman Empire: a world of bloody battlefields, evil machinations, honour, ambition and greed.
When Flavius Constantine, the High King of Britannia, is killed and his eldest son and heir Constans, is murdered, the path lies clear for Vortigern to seize the throne.
Only Queen Severa's young sons, Ambrosius and Uther, stand in the way of Vortigern's evil plan. Sensing the boys are in mortal danger, Constantine's loyal Decurion, Paulus, and Severa's beloved brother, Pridenow, smuggle the infants into exile.
Meanwhile, Queen Severa is forced to endure Vortigern's relentless brutality in her desperate bid to hold together the fractured throne. But she is no match for the Wolf of Midnight and it is only in the fullness of time that her sons will return to Britannia to claim the throne and fulfil their destiny...
