Book Description
================
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
more. 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 Britain to renewed
warfare. Alfred wants his son, Edward, to succeed him but there are other Saxon
claimants to the throne as well as ambitious pagan Vikings to the north.

UhtredΓÇÿs loyalty - and his vows - were to Alfred, not to his son, and despite
his long years of service to Alfred, he is still not committed to the Saxon
cause. His own desire is to reclaim his long lost lands and castle to the
north. But the challenge to him, as the kingΓÇÖs warrior, is that he knows that
he will either be the means of making AlfredΓÇÖs 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 life by the master of
historical fiction.
