Our hero Uhtred is a confused and reluctant Saxon saviour. Surrounded by men who do not appreciate him and in a world where he has more in common with his enemy than his fellow English, we follow him on his adventures. Being a Cornwell novel, you know the history will be as accurate as he can make it (with his usual twists of the truth) and full of love, enemies, friends and of course the battles. You feel really emersed in the historic period, and as always 'just one more chapter'.
