In the exhilarating Saxon Tales series, Bernard Cornwell reimagines one of the most fascinating tales in all of history -- the birth of England -- and breathes life into the brilliant king who made it possible: Alfred the Great.Alfred of Wessex has survived the Danush invasions, but though he now has an uneasy truce with his enemies, fresh Viking ships are arriving to plunder and enslave the Saxons. Those Vikings must be defeated, and Alfred's first move is to deny them their fortress on the Thames, the decayed Roman city of London. His weapon is Uhtred, a warrior of formidable reputation. But neither Alfred's wisdom, not Uhtred's prowess, might be enough to save Wessex when a Viking lord captures a prize of inestimable value.
