    Description

    The fifth novel in Bernard Cornwell’s epic and best-selling series on the making of England and the fate of his great hero, Uhtred of Bebbanburg.

    BBC2’s major Autumn 2015 TV show The Last Kingdom is based on the first two books in the series.

    In the last years of the ninth century, King Alfred of Wessex is in failing health, and his heir is an untested youth. The Danes, who have failed so many times to conquer Wessex, smell opportunity....

    First comes Harald Bloodhair, a savage warrior leading a Viking horde, who is encouraged to cruelty by his woman, Skade. But Alfred still has the services of Uhtred, his unwilling warlord, who leads Harald into a trap and, at Farnham in Surrey, inflicts one of the greatest defeats the Vikings were ever to suffer.

    This novel, the fifth in the magnificent series of England's history tells of the final assaults on Alfred's Wessex, that Wessex survived to become England is because men like Uhtred defeated an enemy feared throughout Christendom.

    where is Keeble?

    I was deeply disappointed by the change of narrator for the last kingdom series. Mr. Keeble was absolutely perfect. He made you feel as you were in the shield wall with Uthred. The new narrator changed all the names, which is quite annoying, and he does not have the same energy. But the greatest gap is in the fighting scenes, where it sounds too flat and bored when compared to keeble.
    I loved the content of the book, but i wished the author would take more care of who narrates his books!

    They were so good but I stop here

    I wont be finishing the series because of the narrator. After listening to the first four books Jonathon, then switching to Matt Battes isn't doable.

    The first 4 books were read with such compassion that in itself made them worth listening too but unfortunately Matt Battes did not live up to that. I hope he can use this going forward.

    What has happened to the narration ?!

    I have screeched to a shuddering halt with this series .. brought to a stop by the shield wall that is the flat monotone of Matt Bates narration and voice acting.

    What a shame - very disappointed as I was so enjoying the series with the passion of Jonathan Keebles storytelling of the first four books.
