Publisher's Summary

New York Times Best Seller

"I gulped it right down. Excellent, as always.... Cornwell brings battles to life like no one else.” (George R.R. Martin, author of Game of Thrones)

The final installment in Bernard Cornwell’s best-selling Saxon Tales series, chronicling the epic story of the making of England - the basis for The Last Kingdom, the hit Netflix series.

The final battle awaits....

The epic conclusion to the globally best-selling historical series.

England is under attack. Chaos reigns. Northumbria, the last kingdom, is threatened by armies from all sides, by land and sea - and only one man stands in their way. Torn between loyalty and sworn oaths, the warrior king Lord Uhtred of Bebbanburg faces his greatest ever battle - and prepares for his ultimate fate....

“Perhaps the greatest writer of historical adventure novels today” (Washington Post), Bernard Cornwell has dazzled and entertained listeners and critics with his prolific string of pause-resisting best sellers. Of all his protagonists, however, none is as beloved as Uhtred of Bebbanburg, and this thrilling historical novel continues the saga of his adventures and the turbulent early years of England.

epic conclusion that starts a little too campy

The book starts a bit too light, more like a made for TV book, but slowly becomes a typical Uhtred story. slaughter, strategy, reflection, bravery, fear and friendship.
