    Description

    A Saxon raised by Vikings. A pagan fighting for a Christian King. The conflict at the heart of a hero will be played out in the fight for England.

    It is 877. Across the kingdoms of Britain the Danes are gaining strength. Uhtred of Bebbanburg, a pagan warrior, must decide who he will align with: the Vikings who raised him or Alfred, King of the West Saxons.

    As the Danes make for Wessex and threaten to destroy the kingdom, Uhtred will forge an uneasy alliance with the king, to lead the last remaining Saxon army in a battle that will be a fight for the very existence of England.

    Commentaires

    Praise for The Pale Horseman:

    "Bernard Cornwell is a literary miracle. Year after year, hail, rain, snow, war and political upheavals fail to prevent him from producing the most entertaining and readable historical novels of his generation." (Daily Mail)
    "Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched." (Observer)
    "It is stirring stuff, and few writers are better qualified than Cornwell to do justice to the excitement of the times…Ninth-century Britain and a master of storytelling - it is a marriage made in heaven." (Sunday Telegraph)
    "Cornwell's mastery of historical sources and his aptitude for battle scenes is well established…the language, and particularly the dialogue, is raw and unarchaic, rich in insults and Anglo-Saxon expletives." (Times Literary Supplement)

    One of the best books in many year

    Nuanced characters, excellent performance, deep look into historical times. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy, history, and good story telling.

    Another Master Class by Jonathan Keeble

    Jonathan Keeble does it again. As with the first book Keeble breathes live into the book and gives every character a distinct voice. It's really amazing and well worth listening too. He sounds like what the TV Uthred should have been like and I always dread having to go without him after book 5 as to me, he is the real Uthred. If you are listening to this than you already know you like the story, so no point in discussing it.

    Lohnenswertes Nachfolger

    Sprecher überzeugt wie im ersten Teil. Die Story ist leider nicht so vielschichtig wie die von Teil 1. Aber dennoch sehr gut

    Spannung und Drama

    steht dem ersten Teil der Saga in nichts nach. Ein echtes Vergnügen, das historisch gut recherchiert ist, auch wenn es die Hauptfigur so nicht gegeben hat.
