Nationen er delt, hvilket i højere grad skyldes interne magtkampe end truslen fra vikingerne. Mercias konge ligger for døden uden en arving, og selv om hans kone er en formidabel kriger og leder, har en kvinde aldrig hersket over et engelsk kongedømme. Og hun mangler sin stærkeste soldat, Uthred af Bebbanburg. Så scenen er sat for en eksplosiv kamp over en tom trone.

Englands fremtid hænger i en tynd tråd. Man mangler en helt. En helt, der i sidste ende kan afgøre nationens skæbne ...

Ottende bog i serien om Uthred og sakserne og kampen for at forene England.

The first installment of Bernard Cornwell’s New York Times bestselling series chronicling the epic saga of the making of England, “like Game of Thrones, but real” (The Observer, London)—the basis for The Last Kingdom, the hit  television series.

This is the exciting—yet little known—story of the making of England in the 9th and 10th centuries, the years in which King Alfred the Great, his son and grandson defeated the Danish Vikings who had invaded and occupied three of England’s four kingdoms.

The story is seen through the eyes of Uhtred, a dispossessed nobleman, who is captured as a child by the Danes and then raised by them so that, by the time the Northmen begin their assault on Wessex (Alfred’s kingdom and the last territory in English hands) Uhtred almost thinks of himself as a Dane. He certainly has no love for Alfred, whom he considers a pious weakling and no match for Viking savagery, yet when Alfred unexpectedly defeats the Danes and the Danes themselves turn on Uhtred, he is finally forced to choose sides. By now he is a young man, in love, trained to fight and ready to take his place in the dreaded shield wall. Above all, though, he wishes to recover his father’s land, the enchanting fort of Bebbanburg by the wild northern sea.

This thrilling adventure—based on existing records of Bernard Cornwell’s ancestors—depicts a time when law and order were ripped violently apart by a pagan assault on Christian England, an assault that came very close to destroying England.
