The Pagan Lord

Bernard Cornwell

Uhtred of Bebbanburg rides into battle once again in the seventh installment of Cornwell's epic Saxon Tales series (after Death of Kings, 2011). Once English King Alfred the Great’s best warrior but now out of favor with the new king, Uhtred is determined to reclaim his birthright, the Northumbrian fortress of Bebbanburg, once and for all. But the Danes to the north, led by Viking Cnut Longsword, stand ready to invade and capture the crown, drawing Uhtred into his bloodiest battle yet.
