After achieving victory at King Alfred's side, Uhtred of Bebbanburg is returning to his home in the North, finally free of his allegiance to the King--or so he believes. An encounter with a vicious slave trader introduces Uhtred to Guthred, the self-proclaimed King of Northumbria. Curious about Guthred's astounding claim, Uhtred follows him north. But he soon discovers fate has another incredible surprise in store, and begins an unexpected journey that climaxes in a midnight siege of a city thought impregnable--a battle more dangerous and dramatic than anything that Cornwell has written yet.

This is the 3rd in the series of Saxon Chronicles. Uthred, the hero, travels to Northumbria to settle old scores. His adventures leads him around the region and indeed onto the North Sea to Jutland, Frisia, Frankia, and Iceland. Well paced and well written though there are some incidences that are unbelievably timely. Alfred is mostly in the background but does continue to play a part in the story. At the end of each book the author provides an historical note to inform the reader what was fact and what was fiction. Even the fictional part though brings forth life in these brutal times.

I just think that all of Bernard Cornwell's historical fictions are wonderful.
