Publisher's Summary

The 11th book in the epic and best-selling series that has gripped millions. 

A hero will be forged from this broken land. As seen on Netflix and BBC around the world. 

Lord Uhtred of Bebbanburg knows that peace is far from reach. Though he has won the battle for his ancestral home, rebellion looms in Mercia and invading Norsemen appear at every turn. With the country in turmoil, Uhtred comes face to face with King Skoll, a violent Norseman leading an army of úlfheðinn, or wolf warriors, hellbent on seizing a kingdom – and killing any in his path. Surrounded and outnumbered by new enemies, Uhtred must call on all his skill and courage to survive and prevent his beloved Northumbria from falling to the Viking hordes.

Great

I loved the book and the series as a whole, but what I liked most was the anecdote by the author. Was a touch of class on his part.

The King without a crown... I absolutely love it.

I am raving for more Uhtred, Lord of Bebbanburg the King without the Crown. The most gripping battle between shield wall and fortress rocked me. AND a masterfully executed twist right at the end. Can't wait for the next book.

Another great Uhtred story

Any long time reader of Bernard Cornwell's books know the quality of story they will receive from this book. I found this book brought out a lot more emotion in me then previous stories with some tough moments to listen to. Matt Bates does another stellar job reprising the role of Uhtred.

Good addition to the series

An enjoyable addition to Uthred's continuing story of the birth of England.

A good warm up for the upcomin Netflixs drama.

Continuation of Excellence

First introduced to Bernard Cornwell when I was stuck in a rainstorn in Papua New Guinea. Read the first Sharpes book in a day. Since then I have read every book Cornwell has written - even the romances.
But ......I do think that the Utred series is the best
Love them and always get excited when I see a new one on the horizon.

Thanks Bernard
