The Coffee Pot Book Club Presents "The Last King" by M J Porter

Please welcome back to the Tavern the lovely M J Porter! We're celebrating her blog tour with her historical novel, The Last King. I love a good Viking story, so I'm eager to find out more. Grab a cup of ale and let's take a peek into M J's intriguing story...

From author MJ Porter comes a thrilling new hero. They sent three hundred warriors to kill one man. It wasn’t enough. Mercia lies broken but not beaten, her alliance with Wessex in tatters. Coelwulf, a fierce and bloody warrior, hears whispers that Mercia has been betrayed from his home in the west. He fears no man, especially not the Vikings sent to hunt him down. To discover the truth of the rumours he hears, Coelwulf must travel to the heart of Mercia, and what he finds there will determine the fate of Mercia, as well as his own.
