Set ten years after the events of The Death of Kings, Bernard Cornwell's The Pagan Lord forcefully drops us into the tumultuous realm of tenth century England. With Alfred the Great gone and the Danes in the north eager for conquest, the best hope for victory, or even survival, is Uhtred, a fierce pagan warrior with little but contempt for the Christians he is saving. With its intense battle scenes and stormy backstage intrigues, this Saxon Tales installment thrust the series to a new level. Easy to recommend.
