Unwillingly thrust into marriage to England's King Æthelred, Emma has given the king a son and heir, but theirs has never been a happy marriage. In The Price of Blood, Bracewell returns to 1006 when a beleaguered Æthelred, still haunted by his brother's ghost, governs with an iron fist and a royal policy that embraces murder.
As tensions escalate and enmities solidify, Emma forges alliances to protect her young son from ambitious men-even from the man she loves. In the north there is treachery brewing, and when Viking armies ravage England, loyalties are shattered and no one is safe from the sword.

Stick with the other narrator
Patricia Bracewell's books are definitely awesome. The fault with this particular recording is the narrator. She inflects incorrectly and has an annoying voice.
The first book in this series, A Shadow on the Crown, was narrated by Katie Firth. She did an incredible job with the narration. The story was already wonderful and Firth's narration made it even better.
Voice, inflection, method of reading, speed at which she reads. All of it. Not a good narrator.
Annoyance that the narration was different than the first book and a poor substitute.

Good story, bad narration
