The fourth installment of Bernard Cornwell’s New York Times bestselling series chronicling the epic saga of the making of England, “like Game of Thrones, but real” (The Observer, London)—the basis for The Last Kingdom, the hit television series. The year is 885, and England is at peace, divided between the Danish kingdom to the north and the Saxon kingdom of Wessex in the south. Warrior by instinct and Viking by nature, Uhtred, the dispossessed son of a Northumbrian lord, has land, a wife and children—and a duty to King Alfred to hold the frontier on the Thames. But a dead man has risen, and new Vikings have invaded the decayed Roman city of London with dreams of conquering Wessex... with Uhtred’s help. Suddenly forced to weigh his oath to the king against the dangerous turning tide of shifting allegiances and deadly power struggles, Uhtred—Alfred’s sharpest sword—must now make the choice that will determine England’s future.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A rousing romp…A deft mix of historical details and customs authenticates the saga.” Publishers Weekly
“With such an extensive pallet to work with, narrator Jamie Glover offers a memorable reading that will capture listeners' attention from the start and keep them intrigued throughout. Glover's deep, throaty British tone is the perfect complement to the story and gives it a stark reality.” AudioFile
“In typical Cornwellian fashion, the battle scenes are magnificent, but the author also deserves points for incorporating a healthy dose of romance and intrigue in to the rousing plot.” Booklist
“Vastly entertaining and slyly wise…Consistently fascinating.” Kirkus Reviews
