This series takes place in an interesting time in history and the author has devised a way to have one character tell about both the Saxons and the Danes (Vikings). Interesting, pretty well written, but too much battle.
I loved the reader of this book. I had never read or listened to Bernard Cornwell books before. I thought the story was great, but I have to admit to feeling let down at the end of this story. I kept thinking that I must have somehow missed a part at the end of this story....but I don't think so. The ending is too abrupt. It left me wanting more, but then maybe he plans to make this a series like his other books.
