Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Uhtred of Bebbanburg is a man of his word. An oath bound him to King Alfred. An oath bound him to Æthelflæd. And now an oath will wrench him away from the ancestral home he fought so hard to regain. For Uhtred has sworn that on King Edward's death, he will kill two men. And now Edward is dying. A violent attack drives Uhtred south with a small band of warriors, and headlong into the battle for kingship. Plunged into a world of shifting alliances and uncertain loyalties, he will need all his strength and guile to overcome the fiercest warrior of them all. As two opposing Kings gather their armies, fate drags Uhtred to London, and a struggle for control that must leave one King victorious, and one dead. But fate - as Uhtred has learned to his cost - is inexorable. Wyrd bid ful ãræd. And Uhtred's destiny is to stand at the heart of the shield wall once again..."-- Provided by publisher.

    The seemingly invincible, yet physically aging Uhtred of Bebbanburg rides again in the twelfth installment in Cornwell's Saxon Tales series. Initially reluctant to leave an independent North Umbria to take up arms again as factions coveting the throne of a united Wessex, East Anglia, and Mercia jockey for position, Uhtred joins the fray when an old friend and a sacred oath taken long ago compel him to do so. As King Edward's health fails, his tenuous grip on power and upon his possible successors slips. When Aethelstan, King Edward's eldest illegitimate son, seeks his assistance in his quest to succeed his father, Uhtred loyally, though certainly not eagerly, forgoes the well-earned comforts of retirement to plunge once more into battle and political intrigue. Nobody does the Saxon period better than Cornwell, and readers will find themselves happily immersed in the muck, mire, and machinations of the Early Middle Ages. Prepare for plenty of demand from both Cornwell devotees and fans of The Last Kingdom, the popular Netflix series based on his books. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
