The year is 878, and the Saxons of Wessex, under King Alfred, have defeated the Danes to keep their kingdom free. Uhtred, the dispossessed son of a Northumbrian lord, helped Alfred win that victory, but now he is disgusted by Alfred's lack of generosity.

Being a descendant of a few Great Vikings, I really enjoyed this book. The story was very believable and I really belt bad for the main character when he was sold into slavery.

It is only weeks after the Second Manassas in September 1862, and Robert E. Lee takes the war north, where he will be met by "Little Mac", General George McClellan, whose northern army far outnumbers and outguns the invading Confederates. In Richmond, Virginia, Starbuck is given command of a punishment battalion, a motley collection of cowards, thieves, deserters, and murderers, officered by men who do not welcome Starbuck's arrival.

I own the soft back copy of this book, I only wish Mr Cornwall would finish the Starbuck Chronicles. I found the Lucifer character very interesting.
