Cornwell. 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.

DisadvantagesYou may prefer to have read the previous books in the series

"...a monastery some time in the past. He’s forgotten where except it was in a land, once known as Mercia. Sheltering with his men he discovers a young monk writing the “Annals of Mercia”. Challenged to read aloud, the monk recites the story of the victorious defeat of the pagans at Fearnhemme in 892, led by the Lord Aethelred of Mercia. Disgusted, Uhtred snatches the pages and hurls them into the fire. Forty years work is destroyed as Uhtred’s rage turns ..." Read review
