9780062107145: Death of Kings (Saxon Tales)

The master of historical fiction presents the iconic story of King Alfred and the making of a nation.

Alfred, the great king, is said to be dying. Rivals for his succession are poised to tear the kingdom apart. The country Alfred has worked thirty years to build is about to disintegrate.

Uhtred, the King’s warrior, Viking born but Saxon bred, wants more than anything else to go and fight to reclaim his stolen Northumbrian inheritance. But he knows that if he deserts the King’s cause, Alfred’s dream – and indeed the very future of the English nation – will very likely vanish.

Death of Kings is an outstanding novel by a master storyteller of how England was made – and very nearly lost.

This is typical Cornwell, meticulously researched, massive in scope, brilliant in execution’ News of the World

‘He’s called a master story-teller. Really he’s cleverer than that’ Telegraph
