9780007331925: The Pagan Lord (The Warrior Chronicles, Book 7)

The new novel in Bernard Cornwell’s number one bestselling series The Warrior Chronicles, on the making of England and the fate of his great hero, Uhtred of Bebbanburg.

At the dawn of the tenth century Britain stands as a divided realm. The Danes rule the north, the Saxons, led by King Edward of Wessex, hold the south. But the uneasy peace cannot hold.

Uhtred, the late King Alfred’s celebrated warrior, must journey across Britain to recapture his ancestral home and the greatest fortress of the north, Bebbanburg. But the Viking lord Cnut Longsword is raising an army and, as his battle-leaders unite, loyalties will be divided and men will fall, as every Saxon kingdom is drawn into a bloody clash with the Danes. And it is Uhtred, lord of the outcasts, who will decide the fate of the nation.

The seventh novel in Bernard Cornwell s number one bestselling series on the making of England and the fate of his great hero, Uhtred of Bebbanburg. BBC2 s major Autumn 2015 TV show THE LAST KINGDOM is based on the first two books in the series. Uhtred - sword of the Saxons, bane of the Vikings - has been declared outcast. Peace in Britain has given Uhtred time to cause trouble - for himself. Branded a pagan abomination by the church, he sails north. For, despite suspecting that Viking leader Cnut Longsword will attack the Saxons again, Uhtred is heading for Bebbanburg, fearing that if he does not act now he will never reclaim his stolen birthright. Yet Uhtred s fate is bound to the Saxons. To Aethelflaed, bright lady of Mercia and to a dead king s dream of England. For great battles must still be fought - and no man is better at that than Uhtred. Uhtred of Bebbanburg s mind is as sharp as his sword. A thorn in the side of the priests and nobles who shape his fate, this Saxon raised by Vikings is torn between the life he loves and those he has sworn to serve.
