Like ChristchurchLib Jun 23, When Danish raiders kill his family, ten-year-old Uhtred becomes the captive, and later the adopted son, of Viking warlord Ragnar, who has conquered three out of the four existing Anglo-Saxon kingdoms including Uhtred's home of Northumbria. Yet despite his admiration and affection for Ragnar, Uhtred longs to reclaim his rightful lands and title as the Earl of Bebbanburg.
His conflicting loyalties come to the fore when he encounters Alfred of Wessex, the future King Alfred the Great.
Like j jaybird May 31, This is a very entertaining historical fiction novel. I watched the BBC series on netflix which was really well done.
I'm looking forward to reading the next book! Like s SilvanafromChester May 16, I'm waiting to read The Last Kingdom and feel sure that it will be a superlative read as all of Cornwell's books have been for me so far.
His grittiness and reality are quite amazing. I put him and Jack Whyte Dream of Eagles saga on the same level.
Both writers of epic historical tales. I can picture the places that he describes Like c cguy64 Feb 15, I listened to the audiobook version over a decade ago, but want to say that it is far superior to the recent BBC TV adaption.
Uhtred's thoughts, missing in the BBC version, are priceless. I also highly recommend listening to the audio version of the series as the readers add texture and bring the lead character, accurately described below as a delightful curmudgeon, to life.
After reading the author's bio on his website, I realized there is a lot of Cornwell in Uhtred. Saxon tales is terrific series about a time that not many authors write about.
Like t tjdickey Jan 20, A reviewer for a later book in the series calls this good reading for those who "find contentment What I find of his books is the research he's put into each. It's not just crude, rude, foul for the sake or lack of better language. It was a brutal time according to all historical records.
