    In a clash of heroes,the kingdom is born.A t the end of the ninth century, King Alfred of Wessex is in ill health; his heir, an untested youth. His enemy, the Danes, having failed to conquer Wessex, now see their chance for victory. Led by the sword of savage warrior Harald Bloodhair, the Viking hordes attack. But Uhtred, Alfred’s reluctant warlord, proves his worth, outwitting Harald and handing the Vikings one of their greatest defeats. For Uhtred, the sweetness of victory is soon overshadowed by tragedy.

    Lana says: "Wonderful Story! Wonderful Narrator!"
    "An improvement"
    Overall

    The Burning Land is another episode in the life of Uhtred from the Saxon Chronicles, in my personal opinion I much prefer the narration by John Lee than that of Jamie Glover who narrated the 4 books of the Saxon Chronicle. His accents are very good and he manages to convey the right sense of occasion in his delivery. As always Bernard Cornwell's descriptive writing style makes it so easy to imagine the scene as it is described, all in all a compelling read with good pace and a reasonable plot.
