Description


Bernard Cornwell’s epic story of the making of England continues in this eleventh installment in the bestselling Saxon Tales series—"like Game of Thrones, but real" (The Observer)—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 family’s fortress, it seems that a peaceful life is not to be – 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 Sköll, 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 series—a rousing adventure of courage, treachery, duty, devotion, majesty, love and battle, as seen through the eyes of a warrior straddling two worlds—Uhtred returns to fight once again for the destiny of England.

Praise For…


“Once again, Cornwell has placed his irascible and cunning hero in the midst of personal and political conflict and provided another exciting story.   VERDICT For those who enjoy their historical fiction told with verve and imagination.”
Library Journal

“A series that never seems to run out of blood, gore, and glory.”
Booklist

“The most prolific and successful historical novelist in the world today.... Mr. Cornwell writes as if he has been to ninth-century Wessex and back.... Much has changed since the ninth century, but some things, and some feelings, are timeless.”
Wall Street Journal

“A rousing, bloodthirsty tale of tumult in early-days Britain.... Great entertainment for fans of historical epics.”
Kirkus

A page-turning thriller of ancient historical times.... Like the Netflix series “The Last Kingdom,” which is based on this series, the books are definitely binge-worthy.
The Oklahoman

“Uhtred is back where he belongs, in the shield-wall, and telling the story of fame and heartbreak, blood and tears, sword against sword. Whether you believe it all or not is up to you; the good news is that Cornwell, once again, makes it easy to do so.”
— Curtis Edmonds, Bookreporter

“Our hero is Uhtred, a good-hearted lout with a pleasantly sour disposition; he’s like a 9th century Han Solo.”
