Bernard Cornwellâ€™s epic story of the making of England
continues in this eleventh installment in the bestselling
Saxon Tales seriesâ€”"like Game of Thrones, but real"
(The Observer)â€”the basis of the hit Netflix
television series The Last Kingdom.
His blood is Saxon
His heart is Viking
His battleground is England
"Perhaps the greatest writer of historical adventure novels
today" (Washington Post), Bernard Cornwell has
dazzled and entertained readers and critics with his
page-turning bestsellers. Of all his protagonists, however,
none is as beloved as Uhtred of Bebbanburg.
And while Uhtred might have regained his familyâ€™s fortress,
it seems that a peaceful life is not to be â€“ as he is under
threat from both an old enemy and a new foe. The old enemy
comes from Wessex where a dynastic struggle will determine
who will be the next king. And the new foe is SkĂ¶ll, a
Norseman, whose ambition is to be King of Northumbria and
who leads a frightening army of wolf-warriors, men who fight
half-crazed in the belief that they are indeed wolves.
Uhtred, believing he is cursed, must fend off one enemy
while he tries to destroy the other. In this new chapter of
the Saxon Tales seriesâ€”a rousing adventure of courage,
treachery, duty, devotion, majesty, love and battle, as seen
through the eyes of a warrior straddling two worldsâ€”Uhtred
returns to fight once again for the destiny of England.
