The eighth 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.Britain is in a state of uneasy peace. Northumbria’s Viking ruler, Sigtryggr, and Mercia’s Saxon Queen Aethelflaed have agreed a truce. And so England’s greatest warrior, Uhtred of Bebbanburg, at last has the chance to take back the home his traitorous uncle stole from him so many years ago—and which his scheming cousin still occupies.But fate is inexorable, and the enemies Uhtred has made and the oaths he has sworn conspire to distract him from his dream of recapturing his home. New enemies enter into the fight for England’s kingdoms: the redoubtable Constantin of Scotland seizes an opportunity for conquest and leads his armies south. Britain’s precarious peace threatens to turn into a war of annihilation. Yet Uhtred is determined that nothing—neither the new adversaries nor the old foes who combine against him—will keep him from his birthright.  “Historical novels stand or fall on detail, and Mr. Cornwell writes as if he has been to ninth-century Wessex and back.”—Wall Street Journal

    Review: The Flame Bearer The next installment of Bernard Cornwell’s bestselling series chronicling the epic saga of the making of England, “like “Game of Thrones,” but real” (Observer, London)—the basis for “The Last Kingdom,” the hit television series coming to Netflix in Fall 2016. From the day it was stolen from me I had dreamed of recapturing Bebbanburg. The great fort was built on a rock that was almost an island

    Bernard Cornwell is a great author if you like the Saxon tales then you should read the Sharpe’s tales really anything he writes would do you well
  • jongi07jongi07
    By far one of the best authors of historical fiction. I have read all his series and collect his hard copies. Bernard Cornwell, Conn Iggulden, Patrick O’Brian, and Mark Twain are my top picks but I still have more books to conquer and more authors to praise.

    Happy Accident Uhtred rules. I don’t usually read series type books. I picked up the first in this series and look forward to every new book.

    Great series! I’ve read all the books of Uhtred. Can’t wait for the next story of how England came to be.
