The Pagan Lord by Bernard Cornwell

The Pagan Lord (The Saxon Stories, #7)The Pagan Lord by Bernard Cornwell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Uhtred is a far from ideal hero but he always stands up for his adopted kingdom even after he has been exiled and threatened with execution.

This part of the series covers a huge swathe of what is now England from Bamburgh (Bebbanburg) in Northumbria across to Chester, down to Gloucester and London. Facing his old enemies Cnut and Siggurd, the uncle who stole Bebbanburg from him and angry Christians in Wessex it’s another epic story.

A great insight into history in the dark ages. Plenty of minor skirmishes and then a huge battle at the end – it’s not a book for the squeamish.

Cornwell is a marvellous story teller and this is another brilliant book. Can’t wait for book 8!
