MJ Porter has written a great little prelude to her series of The Last King & Coelwulf and his warriors.
Such a great little read it was nice to hear how Coelwulf was brought back to Kingsholm to take up the Ealdorman status with his brother dying. The background into a few of the other leading characters in the book is wonderful. The challenge Coelwulf had to come back and take control over his brothers sworn warriors & the anxiety they had . Brilliant 🤩
