Unfortunately this is the last of the Keeble books. Jonathan Keeble is THE voice of Uthred. No one comes close and what comes next (for 2 books only thank god) is dreadful. He makes Uthred sound like Uthred and gives every place it's proper name with the right pronounciation and gives every character their proper feel with his stellar voice work. I always dread having to go without him from this book on.

The book itself is one of the inbetweeners that Cornwell makes us go through every since the great Trilogy. Book 1, 2 and 3 are stellar, Book 4 is probably one of the weakest. Book 5 is decent while not stellar, Book 6 is very good again, Book 7 is again a bit of a dud, Book 8 is pretty good because it has some really nice B story plots, Book 9 is again fairly strong. Book 10 is decent simply because we finally reach a sort of end and Book 11 again is dreadful. What holds this up is Keebles voice work. So treat yourself because you won't hear Uthred as convincing as this again for the next 7 books.

Third time in a row that he absolutely nails Uthred and all the supporting cast with his stellar voice acting. Absolutely brilliant. On top of that this is probably the best story out of all the books so far (11 by my last count). So you get the total package. The best voice of Uthred and probably the best story Cornwell has churned out over the last 20 years (which includes Sharpe).

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.

Great first book in the whole series but best of all the man reading it is the real deal. He makes Uthred sounds like Uthred, pronounces the Old Saxon correctly, names all the places correctly and gives every character a unique feel. It's a pleasure to hear someone be on the top of his game and breath real life into a book.

I have absolutely no idea why they thought changing the narrator from Jonathan Keeble to this clown. He mispronounces every name. Uthred hails from Northumbria and this takes place in Saxon England so certain vowels have to be pronounced Germanic, that includes Uthred which is pronounced like the present day northern U is pronounced. He also doesn't use the historic names that Cornwell is using in the book but instead uses the modern equivalent which Bernard Cornwell gives in a sort of addendum at the beginning of each book. Perring is absolutely dreadful in every other regard as well. There is zero effort put into making characters sound distinct. When Keeble did his father Pyrlig, Finan, Uthred, Steappa and Beocca you would instantly know who is talking here? Nothing. No inflections or change of voice... nothing. It's dreadful.

The story itself is great and absolutely stunning as always but I wish they would go back and re-record all the books with Jonathan Keeble. He is the master. So unless you absolutely need the two books that are read by Perring... skip them. Matt Bates isn't as good as Keeble but he is fine.
