The Last Kingdom - Bernard CornwellHarperCollins, 2004, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good+ - in Very Good+ DJ.
Cornwell's protagonist is Uhtred, caught in the conflict between the Danes and the English in the ninth century. He is born into the English aristocracy, but loses his parents at the age of ten and is raised in Viking fashion by a Dane. When massacres reign down on both sides, Uhtred is torn between his loyalties--and when his family disappears, a reckoning with a Viking chieftain is in the offing. Behind all this is the King, Alfred: complex, conflicted, and by no means the figure that the conventional history books render him. 400pp.
