At the fortress of the eagles, three kings will fight …
Uhtred of Bebbanburg has won back his ancestral home but, threatened from all sides byenemies both old and new, he doesn’t have long to enjoy the victory.
In Mercia, rebellion is in the air as King Edward tries to seize control. In Wessex, rivalparties scramble to settle on the identity of the next king. And across the country invadingNorsemen continue their relentless incursion, ever hungry for land.
Uhtred – a legendary warrior, admired and sought as an ally, feared as an adversary –finds himself once again torn between his two heritages: fighting on what he considers the
wrong side, cursed by misfortune and tragedy and facing one of his most formidable
enemies. Only the most astute cunning, the greatest loyalty and the most spectacularcourage can save him.
For decades, Uhtred has stood at the intersection between Pagan and Christian, betweenSaxon and Viking, between the old world he was born into and the new world being forged
around him. But as the winds of change gather pace, the pressure on Uhtred as father, as
politician and as warrior grows as never before.

“Once again, Cornwell has placed his irascible and cunning hero in the midst of personal and political conflict and provided another exciting story. VERDICT For those who enjoy their historical fiction told with verve and imagination.”
“A series that never seems to run out of blood, gore, and glory.”
A page-turning thriller of ancient historical times.... Like the Netflix series “The Last Kingdom,” which is based on this series, the books are definitely binge-worthy.
“Uhtred is back where he belongs, in the shield-wall, and telling the story of fame and heartbreak, blood and tears, sword against sword. Whether you believe it all or not is up to you; the good news is that Cornwell, once again, makes it easy to do so.”
“The most prolific and successful historical novelist in the world today.... Mr. Cornwell writes as if he has been to ninth-century Wessex and back.... Much has changed since the ninth century, but some things, and some feelings, are timeless.”
“Our hero is Uhtred, a good-hearted lout with a pleasantly sour disposition; he’s like a 9th century Han Solo.”
