Textul de pe ultima copertă
Uhtred of Bebbanburg has won back his ancestral home, but, threatened from all sides by enemies both old and new, he doesn’t have long to enjoy the victory.
In Mercia, rebellion is in the air as King Edward tries to seize control. In Wessex, rival parties scramble to settle on the identity of the next king. And across the country, invading Norsemen continue their re-lentless incursion, ever hungry for land.
Uhtred—a legendary warrior, admired and sought as an ally, feared as an adversary—finds himself once again torn between his two heritages: fighting on what he considers the wrong side, cursed by misfortune and tragedy, and facing one of his most formidable enemies. Only the most astute cunning, the greatest loyalty, and the most spectacular courage can save him.
For decades, Uhtred has stood at the intersection between pagan and Christian, between Saxon and Viking, between the old world he was born into and the new world being forged around him. But as the winds of change gather pace, the pressure on Uhtred as father, politician, and warrior grows as never before.
“A series that never seems to run out of blood, gore, and glory.”
“The most prolific and successful historical novelist in the world today.... Mr. Cornwell writes as if he has been to ninth-century Wessex and back.... Much has changed since the ninth century, but some things, and some feelings, are timeless.”
“A rousing, bloodthirsty tale of tumult in early-days Britain.... Great entertainment for fans of historical epics.”
A page-turning thriller of ancient historical times.... Like the Netflix series “The Last Kingdom,” which is based on this series, the books are definitely binge-worthy.
“Uhtred is back where he belongs, in the shield-wall, and telling the story of fame and heartbreak, blood and tears, sword against sword. Whether you believe it all or not is up to you; the good news is that Cornwell, once again, makes it easy to do so.”
“Our hero is Uhtred, a good-hearted lout with a pleasantly sour disposition; he’s like a 9th century Han Solo.”
