Book Description
================
The fifth novel in Bernard CornwellΓÇÖs epic and best-selling series on the
making of England and the fate of his great hero, Uhtred of Bebbanburg.

BBC2ΓÇÖs major Autumn 2015 TV show The Last Kingdom is based on the first two
books in the series.

In the last years of the ninth century, King Alfred of Wessex is in failing
health, and his heir is an untested youth. The Danes, who have failed so many
times to conquer Wessex, smell opportunity....

First comes Harald Bloodhair, a savage warrior leading a Viking horde, who is
encouraged to cruelty by his woman, Skade. But Alfred still has the services of
Uhtred, his unwilling warlord, who leads Harald into a trap and, at Farnham in
Surrey, inflicts one of the greatest defeats the Vikings were ever to suffer.

This novel, the fifth in the magnificent series of England's history tells of
the final assaults on Alfred's Wessex, that Wessex survived to become England
is because men like Uhtred defeated an enemy feared throughout Christendom.
