Inhaltsangabe

The fourth in the best-selling Alfred series from number-one historical novelist, Bernard Cornwell.

The year is 885, and England is at peace, divided between the Danish kingdom to the north and Alfred's kingdom of Wessex in the south.

But trouble stirs, a dead man has risen and new Vikings have arrived to occupy London. It is a dangerous time, and it falls to Uhtred, half Saxon, half Dane, a man feared and respected the length and breadth of Britain, to expel the Viking raiders and take control of London for Alfred.

His uncertain loyalties must now decide England's future.

A gripping tale of love, rivalry and violence, Sword Song tells the story of England's making.

Kritikerstimmen

Praise for The Lords of the North:

“Beautifully crafted story-telling, complete with splendid set-piece battles and relentless derring-do, so gripping that it rarely stops to catch a breath. It demonstrates once again Cornwell's enormous skill as a historical narrator. He would have graced Alfred's court entertaining the guests with his stories” (Daily Mail)
“Cornwell takes the spectres of ninth century history and puts flesh back on their bones. Here is Alfred's world restored - impeccably researched and illuminated with the colour and passion of a master storyteller” (Justin Pollard, author of Alfred the Great)

Praise for Bernard Cornwell:

“Bernard Cornwell is a literary miracle. Year after year, hail, rain, snow, war and political upheavals fail to prevent him from producing the most entertaining and readable historical novels of his generation.” (Daily Mail)
“Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched” (Observer)

It's always bitter sweet to say goodbye

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.
