Description

The seventh novel in Bernard Cornwell's number one bestselling series on the making of England and the fate of his great hero, Uhtred of Bebbanburg. Alfred the Great is dead and Edward his son reigns as king. Wessex survives but peace cannot hold. The Danes in the north, led by Viking Cnut Longsword, stand ready to invade and will never rest until the emerald crown is theirs. Uhtred, once Alfred's great warrior but now out of favour with the new king, must lead a band of outcasts north to recapture his old family home, that great Northumbrian fortress, Bebbanburg. Loyalties will be divided and men will fall, as every Saxon kingdom is drawn into the bloodiest battle yet with the Danes; a war which will decide the fate of every king, and the entire English nation.show more

Review quote

Praise for THE PAGAN LORD: 'Bernard Cornwell is always in full command of his material and The Pagan Lord demonstrates his unobtrusive skills as a novelist... Cornwell provides his usual pleasures of a strong narrative, vigorous action and striking characterisation. Like some of his characters he remains king of the territory he has staked out as his own' SUNDAY TIMES Praise for Bernard Cornwell: 'The best battle scenes of any writer I've ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive' George R.R. Martin 'Cornwell draws a fascinating picture of England as it might have been before anything like England existed' THE TIMES 'He's called a master storyteller. Really he's cleverer than that' TELEGRAPH 'A reminder of just how good a writer he is' SUNDAY TIMES 'Nobody in the world does this better than Cornwell' Lee Child This is a magnificent and gory work' Daily Mail 'The historical blockbuster of the year' EVENING STANDARD 'A runaway success' OBSERVER 'A master of storytelling' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH This is typical Cornwell, meticulously researched, massive in scope, brilliant in execution' NEWS OF THE WORLDshow more
