Publisher's summary

Bernard Cornwell’s epic story of the making of England continues in this 11th installment in the best-selling Saxon Tales series - "[L]ike Game of Thrones, but real" (The Observer) - the basis of the hit Netflix television series The Last Kingdom.

His blood is Saxon. His heart is Viking. His battleground is England.

"Perhaps the greatest writer of historical adventure novels today" (Washington Post), Bernard Cornwell has dazzled and entertained fans and critics with his best-sellers. Of all his protagonists, however, none is as beloved as Uhtred of Bebbanburg.

And while Uhtred might have regained his family’s fortress, it seems a peaceful life is not to be - as he is under threat from both an old enemy and a new foe. The old enemy comes from Wessex, where a dynastic struggle will determine who will be the next king. And the new foe is Sköll, a Norseman, whose ambition is to be king of Northumbria and who leads a frightening army of wolf-warriors, men who fight half-crazed in the belief they are indeed wolves.

Uhtred, believing he is cursed, must fend off one enemy while he tries to destroy the other.

In this new chapter of the Saxon Tales series - a rousing adventure of courage, treachery, duty, devotion, majesty, love, and battle, as seen through the eyes of a warrior straddling two worlds - Uhtred returns to fight once again for the destiny of England.
