War of the Wolf is the eleventh book in the Last Kingdom series by Bernard Cornwell and follows straight on from 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.
