The master of historical fiction presents the iconic story of King Alfred and the making of a nation As the ninth century wanes England appears about to be plunged into chaos once For the Viking raised but Saxon born warrior Uhtred whose life seems to shadow the making of England this presents him with difficult choices King Alfred is dying and his passing threatens the island of Britai. Alfred looked dead already Indeed I might have thought him a corpse if he had not pulled his hand away from Osferth who was in tears The king s long face was pale as fleece with sunken eyes sunken cheeks and dark shadows His hair had thinned and gone white His gums had pulled back from his remaining teeth his unshaven chin was stained with spittle while the hand on the book was mere skin covered bones on which a great ruby shone the ring too big now for his skeletal finger His breath was shallow though his voice was remarkably strong Behold the sword of the Saxons he greeted me image error

Ut the challenge to him as the king's warrior is that he knows that he will either be the means of making Alfred's dream of a united and Christian England come to pass or be responsible for condemning it to oblivion This novel is a dramatic story of the power of tribal commitment and the terrible difficulties of divided loyalties This is the making of England magnificently brought to li. I thought I had run out of steam with Uthred and King Alfred and their wars against the Danes in 9th century England But the BBC America mini series production of The Last Kingdom was so tasty and fabulous I got hungry for Cornwell s writing again So glad I did This one was so satisfying up there with the thrills of the first one of the series Uhtred who was born into Saxon nobility in Northumberland but kidnapped and raised a Dane continues to serve the Christian king of Wessex He has a modest estate for his service but little income or honor because of his troublesome heathen ways and antagonism to the church hierarchy that Alfred lets influence his governance The site is on the borderland with ambitious Danish kings under an uneasy truce The unrest is being amplified by the impending death of Alfred as both Danes and Saxons are jockeying to take territory in the impending power vacuum Uhtred is eager to conuer enemies before they get too strong and wangles a way to reveal their intentionsOf course there are battles aplenty and Cornwell is masterly as usual in portraying them But the fun lies in Uhtred s mature ways of using craft in outwit the Danes and garnering intelligence to spot the Saxons who are about to betray Alfred by allying with them He is middle aged now and growing philosophical in many ways He keeps a wild young thing for his bed while sneaking time whenever possible with his forbidden love Athelflaed the king s daughter She is estranged from her treacherous Saxon husband and is now tucked away by Alfred in a nunnery neither of which stops Uhtred For a great in depth review of this book treat yourself to that of Algernon I don t think it necessary to read the books in order though I am doing so With three to go I have something to tide me over while waiting for another season of the BBC production We ll see how well he does under Alfred s son Edward as king His battle lieutenants Alfred s bastard son Osfert and the Irish ex priest Finan are wonderful new characters in this book that I would like to read about His perpetual goal of recovering his rightful throne at Bebbanburg in Northumbria still lies in the future
