England is now a defeated archipelago, but somewhere in the higher ground to the far west, insurrection is brewing. Can Ludo and Levello, the self-styled kings of Wales, free the British Isles without the help of Pakistan, the only other country left in the free world?
Award-winning author Horatio Clare refracts politics, faith and the contemporary world order through some of the earliest British myth to question our ideas about outsiders, infidels and the enemy within.
