When your brother is your enemy, would you save him or watch him die?
AD 552 - Luca, seventeen, stands on the shore of the Sabrina River watching his brother struggle in the mud plains, knowing Kennan will drown when the tide comes in. He looks back on the events that have led to their mortal enmity. As war with the Saxons and Jutes is threatening, he must decide who is his real enemy; Kennan, the brother he knows better than anyone else? Or a Saxon prince he has never yet met?

The Last Tribes of Britannia: 6th Century Britain is lawless and unstable. Old tribal identities are reinvigorated after the withdrawal of Rome but Germanic culture is dominating from the east. Wessex is yet to be born and a new Anglo-Saxon era is yet to begin, but by the end of the century new kingdoms will be created and old ones lost forever.

This is a story of brotherhood and growing up in an old world of warriors, kings, monks and spies. It's about overcoming prejudice and seeing the other side of the story. As ordinary folk struggle to survive from the land, inevitably, some are caught up in the tides of change and the whims of Kings.

The gripping narrative is accompanied by intricate and charming illustrations by the author.

"It's a truly original work, and one that stands out in such a popular genre. The illustrations in particular add a sense of personality and character to the book, and the prose is engaging and imaginative.
