Bernard Cornwell – The Flame Bearer

The Flame Bearer by Bernard Cornwell is the 10th book in the Last Kingdom series set in 10th-century Britain. It is very much centred on Uhtred finally winning back his fortress at Bebbanburg from his despicable cousin.

Bernard Cornwell – Death of Kings

Bernard Cornwell – Sword Song

Sword Song by Bernard Cornwell catches up with Uhtred a few years after the events of The Lords of the North. The book is mostly based in the London area and by Cornwell’s own admission is the least historically accurate of The Last Kingdom series so far. But that doesn’t mean it’s any the less enjoyable.

Bernard Corwell – The Pale Horseman

The Pale Horseman, sequel to The Last Kingdom, sees Uhtred, who we are constantly reminded was born as a Saxon in Northumbria but was raised as a Dane, defying the peace that was negotiated between pious King Alfred and the Danish chieftain Guthrum.
