Description

ENGLAND IS BORN.


BBC2's major TV series THE LAST KINGDOM is based on Bernard Cornwell's bestselling novels on the making of England and the fate of his great hero, Uhtred of Bebbanburg. Sword Song is the fourth book in the series.


Season 2 of the epic TV series premiers this March.


It is 885. England is at peace; the Danes rule the north and King Alfred holds the south. But trouble stirs when a band of Vikings invade London. Uhtred of Bebbanburg, Alfred's greatest warrior, must lead his men to attack the Viking raiders in the south. But his allegiance to the King will be tested in perhaps the most threatening way yet.

Review quote

Praise for The Lords of the North:


`Beautifully crafted story-telling, complete with splendid set-piece battles and relentless derring-do, so gripping that it rarely stops to catch a breath. It demonstrates once again Cornwell's enormous skill as a historical narrator. He would have graced Alfred's court entertaining the guests with his stories' Daily Mail


`Cornwell takes the spectres of ninth century history and puts flesh back on their bones. Here is Alfred's world restored - impeccably researched and illuminated with the colour and passion of a master storyteller'
Justin Pollard, author of `Alfred the Great'


Praise for Bernard Cornwell:


'Bernard Cornwell is a literary miracle. Year after year, hail, rain, snow, war and political upheavals fail to prevent him from producing the most entertaining and readable historical novels of his generation' Daily Mail


'Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched' Observer
