PALE HORSEMAN

BERNARD CORNWELL    Book Number: 89244    Product format: Paperback

Book two in The Last Kingdom series as seen on Netflix and BBC. When peace is torn apart by bloody Danish steel, Uhtred must fight to save a king who distrusts him. Sceptical of a treaty between the Vikings and Wessex, Uhtred takes his talent for mayhem to Cornwall, gaining treasure and a mysterious woman on the way, but when he is accused of massacring Christians, he finds lies can be as deadly as steel. It is the lowest time for the Saxons. Defeated comprehensively by the Vikings who now occupy most of England, Alfred and his very small group of surviving followers retreat to the trackless marshlands of Somerset. There, forced to move restlessly to escape betrayal or detection, using the marsh mists for cover, they travel by small boats from one island refuge to another hoping for more support and strength. Only Uhtred remains resolute, determined to discover the enemy's strategies. He once again draws on his Viking upbringing and attempts to enter the Viking camp. His plan is to become accepted by their leaders, and to sit on their councils and uncover their plans. His anger at Alfred's criticism of his own conduct draws him back again to his allegiance to the Vikings - Uhtred must fight a battle that will shape history, and confront the Viking with the banner of the white horse. Uhtred of Bebbanburg's mind is as sharp as his sword, a thorn in the side of the priests and nobles who shape his fate. 409pp, paperback.
