9780061155789: The Lords of the North (The Saxon Chronicles, Book 3)

Abridged version

The third installment of Bernard Cornwell’s 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 BBC America television series.

After achieving victory at King Alfred’s side, Uhtred of Bebbanburg is returning to his home in the North, finally free of his allegiance to the King—or so he believes. An encounter with a vicious slave trader introduces Uhtred to Guthred, the self-proclaimed King of Northumbria. Curious about Guthred’s astounding claim, Uhtred follows him north. But he soon discovers fate has another incredible surprise in store, and begins an unexpected journey that climaxes in the midnight siege of a city thought impregnable—a dangerous seige that results in the forging of England.

Lords of the North is Bernard Cornwell’s finest work yet—a breathtaking adventure, but it also tells the story of the creation of English identity, as the English and Danes begin to become one people, appropriating each other’s languages and, thrillingly, fighting side-by-side.

About the Author:

BERNARD CORNWELL is the author of the acclaimed New York Times bestselling Saxon Tales series, which includes The Last Kingdom, The Pale Horseman, Lords of the North, Sword Song, The Burning Land, Death of Kings, The Pagan Lord, and, most recently, The Empty Throne and Warriors of the Storm, and which serves as the basis for the hit television series The Last Kingdom. He lives with his wife on Cape Cod and in Charleston, South Carolina.

From AudioFile:

Jamie Glover authentically captures the atmosphere of the era of the Saxon Chronicles with seemingly effortless narration in this historical fiction. Uhtred, a warrior whose faith is in his sword, joins forces with the Saxons of Wessex, fighting under the flag of King Alfred against the Danes even though he himself is Danish. Glover portrays Uhtred's divided loyalties with genuine conflict, which soon turns to disgust at King Alfred's lack of generosity when the battles are over. Glover's tight pacing and full attention to nuance and tone portray Uhtred's sense of betrayal. Sounds of battles and clashing swords set the stage for the sequel in this breathtaking adventure series as Uhtred heads north in search of his sister.

Book Description HarperAudio. No binding. Book Condition: New. Audio CD. From Bernard Cornwell, the undisputed master of historical fiction, comes the third volume in the exhilarating Saxon Chronicles. The year is 878, and the Saxons of Wessex, under King Alfred, have defeated the Danes to keep their kingdom free. Uhtred, the dispossessed son of a Northumbrian lord, helped Alfred win that victory, but now he is disgusted by Alfreds lack of generosity. Uhtred flees Wessex, going north to search for his stepsister in the formidable stronghold of Dunholm. Uhtred arrives in the north to discover rebellion, chaos, and fear. His only ally is Hild, a West Saxon nun fleeing her calling, and his best hope is his sword. Needing other allies he chooses Guthred, a seemingly deluded slave who believes he is a king. Together they cross the Pennines to where a desperate alliance of fanatical Christians and beleaguered Danes form a new army to confront the terrible Viking lords who rule Northumbria. Instead of victory Uhtred finds betrayal. But he also discovers love and redemption as he is forced to turn once again to his reluctant ally, Alfred the Great. A breathtaking adventure, Lords of the North is also the story of the creation of modern England, as the English and Danes gradually become one people, adopting each others languages and fighting side by side. Performed by Jamie Glover This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Audio CD. Bookseller Inventory # 9780061155789
