Wheel of the Fates
IT IS 742. The throne is empty; the pagan states are in rebellion; Charles Martel’s widow and youngest son have been imprisoned, and trust between Carloman and Pippin—the two brothers who remain in power—has been shattered. Making matters worse, the Church is secretly conspiring to place a Merovingian on the throne and Charles’s daughter Hiltrude has wed the leader of the rebellion—giving him the legitimacy of Charles’s legacy.
BASED ON A TRUE STORY, Wheel of the Fates picks up where the award-winning Anvil of God leaves off—chronicling the lives of Charles Martel’s children as they vie for power in what’s left of the kingdom…and their family.
