The ending of this book seemed to go by pretty quick. I was starting to wonder how things would get wrapped up by the end, or if they would be left on a cliffhanger.
I was surprised at how well he did bring the book to a close. All that would make it sound like I didn't like the book, but I blew through it in only a few sessions. If not for getting busy in the middle, I'd have likely finished this in 3 days. Overall this was a solid entry in the series, that hopefully inches things a bit closer to the end, albeit not as much as I would have hoped.

This book has him on the go and attacking from beginning to end. All three of his children are part of the story and I like the family man version of Uhtred we get to see because of it.

There is no doubt that this is family, warrior style, but still, it gives a more rounded version of this character rather than just the fire breathing, battle hardened, christian hating, morose man we usually read about. Mar 16, Krista Baetiong Tungol rated it it was amazing Shelves: And reasonably so, as he still has a would-be king to mentor and a beloved fortress to recapture!
Jan 01, Shannon rated it really liked it Shelves: It's more blood and thunder as Uhtred continues to fight for Wessex while thirsting for his ancestral lands. There's fighting and more fighting, particularly against the Irish and the Norse. Some interesting landscapes for fighting and maneuvering this time around. In some ways this is a repeat of some of the older books but if you love Uhtred as I do then you'll forgive the author.
B to B plus. View 1 comment. Jan 19, Susan Johnson rated it it was amazing Shelves: Sometimes a book series starts to go dull when you reach the 10th book but that is certainly not the case with this book. In fact, it's my favorite book so far and I have loved all of them.
This has everything- a trip to Ireland, Uhtred's interactions with all three of his children, a reunion with his first love, magnificent battle scenes and an interesting prostitute named Mus who inspires an army. What more can a person ask for? There is just something magical about Uhtred. He was born a Saxo Sometimes a book series starts to go dull when you reach the 10th book but that is certainly not the case with this book.
He was born a Saxon and raised to be the Lord of Bebbanburg. He was captured by the Danes, raised as one and is an ardent follower of Thor. Who can blame him? Thor seems like a delightful God and Valhalla a wonderful place to pass eternity. And the Saxon Christianity?
Uhtred says he has seen people whip themselves until their back is strips of flesh, people limp on bleeding stumps to worship the tooth of the whale that swallowed Jonah and a man who hammered nails through his own feet. Uhtred says, "Why prefer a god who wants you to torture yourself? Uhtred is a brilliant military man who seems callous and has no trouble killing.
Yet he is loyal and treats his friends and the men under his command well. He loves his children in spite of their very real differences.
He is a man that others love to follow. He is a natural leader. In spite of his flaws, he is admirable. This book is a wonderful addition to the series. You can read it as a stand alone as there are plenty of explanations but long time readers, like myself, will enjoy the evolution of Uhtred. And there is an added bonus.
The section about Mus is just downright humorous. I laughed so hard at her inclusion at the end of the story. This is a homerun for me and I only regret that I have to wait a year to catch up with him again. Jun 09, Rebecka2 marked it as to-read.

There is plenty of action, bloodshed, an easily recognisable if completely one-dimensional and thoroughly under-developed bad guy to root against and lots of other stuff to get into here.
There are still some significant flaws to be found though. For anyone that knows even the most remotest thing about British geography, it will be glaringly obvious that Cornwell has done virtually none if any research on the location of Chester - 'Ceaster' in the book, its shortened Saxon name - and how that directly impacts on the setup of the plot.
Specifically, there is a river just as accessible as the Mersey but which, instead of taking the Vikings to abandoned no man's farmland, would have taken them to the far bigger prize of the fortress of Chester as the river flowed directly alongside the city walls at the time the story is set.
It gets most obvious when the characters pontificate on what else they could have done to prevent the Vikings getting access to Mercia, while completely ignoring the elephant in the room, the river Dee.
The villain, as alluded to earlier, is woefully underdeveloped and could quite as easily be lifted in or out of the book without even being noticed. He appears in the story so little that he may as well not even exist, he's that ephemeral. The minor supporting roles get more depth and characterisation to them than the person who is meant to be the chief antagonist! In comparison to the previous two, lacklustre, and dusty books - tellingly devoid of many, if any, battle scenes - this book still does enough to pack a wallop and be relatively enjoyable, though lacking that killer touch Cornwell is usually known for.
If the villain, and said gaping plot flaw, had actually had more time and effort spent on them, this would easily have been a four star book. As it is, those drawbacks have meant I felt compelled to drag it down to a three out of five instead. A good, solid installment in the series though relatively utilitarian rather than compelling. Jul 23, Ctgt rated it really liked it. It is not difficult to be a lord, a jarl, or even a king, but it is difficult to be a leader.
Another entertaining if unspectacular volume in this series. A nemesis or two from the past come back to haunt Uhtred and he gets a bit closer to his ultimate goal of reclaiming Bebbanburg. But I must say I'm ready for this series to end. When the supporting cast is much more interesting than Uhtred, it's time to pack it in.
Don't get me wrong there is still plenty of action and intrigue and the book was It is not difficult to be a lord, a jarl, or even a king, but it is difficult to be a leader. Don't get me wrong there is still plenty of action and intrigue and the book was enjoyable but at this point the Uhtred story needs to wrap up. Aug 22, Donna rated it really liked it Shelves: This is number 9 in the Saxon Stories series by Bernard Cornwell.
I love this series. It has been fun. Uhtred of Bebbanburg is larger than life, and I mean that in a good way. This installment was entertaining.
The characters moved forward but the story wasn't as gripping. It felt like a set up for the 10th book which I finished today. However, even with that said, this book was still highly enjoyable. I think the best part is that the MC is who he is.
No apologies. No excuses. And he owns every bit of it. What's not to love?!!!
Feb 04, Speesh rated it it was amazing Shelves: Starting three years after The Empty Throne , that's a long gap, as I remember. Long enough for Uhtred to now feel Elder Statesman Uhtred. Uhtred deciding to say 'fuck this for a game of soldiers' and going all-in on re-taking Bebbanburg is what HE wants to do, and the Three Norns, so often used in novels set in this period to cover for not making a decision, be damned!
It's a be-freeing feeling, not just for Uht Starting three years after The Empty Throne , that's a long gap, as I remember. It's a be-freeing feeling, not just for Uhtred, but also for us. Yeah, there are a couple of things to sort first, but after gathering the large part you'll see of his family around him, getting strong and throwing off the blah, blah, blah - he's on his way.
A good one, then a so-so.
Or two. Still, a so-so from Bernard Cornwell is better than most other Historical Fiction writers' best. Yeah, there is some unwarranted hero worship of his work out there, but I'll give him his due, he may not walk on water, but he does deliver.
There is a lot less of the formula feel to Warriors, it just feels better. More honest. More passion and feeling to the writing. More action too. Oh, and more Finnan. What he also does particularly well in Warriors , is write about the waiting for battle, and the hours, minutes, then seconds before the two sides hit.
I, and I suspect, Bernard C, have never been in such a situation, but if anyone can make a good stab, slash and cut at how it maybe was, then it's surely Bernard Cornwell in Warriors. Obviously, he's a pacifist, and he does a really good job of showing that most warriors are, in the few seconds before they hit the other shieldwall.
And while we're in Matthew Harffy territory That might help you with Matthew H's increasingly excellent books, it does me. The best book blog on the web?

Motivated by the need to support himself in the U. He named his chief protagonist Richard Sharpe, a rifleman involved in most major battles of the Peninsular War.
Cornwell wanted to start the series with the Siege of Badajoz but decided instead to start with a couple of "warm-up" novels. These were Sharpe's Eagle and Sharpe's Gold , both published in Sharpe's Eagle was picked up by a publisher, and Cornwell got a three-book deal. He went on to tell the story of Badajoz in his third Sharpe novel, Sharpe's Company , published in Cornwell and wife Judy co-wrote a series of novels, published under the pseudonym "Susannah Kells".
In , he also published Redcoat , an American Revolutionary War novel set in Philadelphia during its occupation by the British. After publishing eight books in his ongoing Sharpe series, Cornwell was approached by a production company interested in adapting them for television.
