Uhtred, Northumbrian born, raised a Viking and married to a Saxon, is a formidable warrior, and he, together with the thoughtful and pious Alfred, Alfred's family and a few of Uhtred's companions, are apparently all that remain of the Wessex leadership after a disastrous truce. Defeated comprehensively by the Vikings, Alfred and his Saxon followers seek refuge in Athelney, a tidal swamp and all that is left of Alfred's kingdom. Uhtred still thinks of rejoining his Danish foster brother and the victorious Vikings, but he finds a growing respect for the stubborn leadership of Alfred, to whom Uhtred's support is essential if the Saxon strength is to be rebuilt and battle joined with the enemy.

Enjoying the Uhtred books. It was like catching up with a friend picking up the second one - looking forward to number three.

EXCELLENT! With three of England's four kingdoms conquered, only one man stands between the Danes and the utter annihilation of his country - King Alfred the Great. Uhtred at his warrior worst.
