Book Description
The next installment of Bernard Cornwell's best-selling series chronicling the
epic saga of the making of England, "like Game of Thrones, but real" (Observer,
London) - the basis for The Last Kingdom, the hit television series coming to
Netflix in fall 2016.

From the day it was stolen from me, I dreamed of recapturing Bebbanburg. The
great fort had been built on a rock that was almost an island. It was massive;
it could be approached only on land by a single narrow track; and it was mine.

Britain is in a state of uneasy peace. Northumbria's Viking ruler, Sigtryggr,
and Mercia's Saxon queen, Aethelflaed, have agreed to a truce. And so England's
greatest warrior, Uhtred of Bebbanburg, at last has the chance to take back the
home his traitorous uncle stole from him so many years ago - and which his
scheming cousin still occupies.

But fate is inexorable, and the enemies Uhtred has made and the oaths he has
sworn combine to distract him from his dream of recapturing Bebbanburg. New
enemies enter into the fight for England's kingdoms: the redoubtable Constantin
of Scotland seizes an opportunity for conquest and leads his armies south.
Britain's precarious peace threatens to turn into a war of annihilation.

But Uhtred is determined that nothing, neither the new enemies nor the old foes
who combine against him, will keep him from his birthright. He is the Lord of
Bebbanburg, but he will need all the skills he has learned in a lifetime of war
to make his dream come true. The latest chapter in Bernard Cornwell's "violent,
absorbing historical saga", The Flame Bearer confirms Bernard Cornwell's title
as "perhaps the greatest writer of historical adventure novels today"
(Washington Post).
