Your skill with the writing craft is spot-on and the stories interesting and intriguing.
You have obviously done a lot of research to ensure your characters and settings are honest and true. As a native of Worcestershire (UK) its not very often there are stories based around the area I live and this was a nice distraction. As you point out, and even for those of us who study English history, the Dark Ages have always been shrouded in as much mystery as fact and while I appreciate these are

Before speaking to the king, his father, he speaks with his sister Aydith and his brother Aethelstan, but all three fail to convince the king of the dangers.

The last Lost Tale of Mercia is a well-written glimpse into the turmoil of a young prince struggling to deal with conspiracies against his father, an unpopular king. It brings back several characters we've already met in previous Lost Tales, with a compelling plot and continually strong characterization, but it is quite blatantly a preview story for Jayden Wood's book, Eadric the Grasper. There is not even a hint of resolution.
