The third novel in Bernard Cornwell's epic and bestselling series on the making of England and the fate of his great hero, Uhtred of Bebbanburg.

BBC2's major Autumn 2015 TV show THE LAST KINGDOM is based on the first two books in the series.

Uhtred wants revenge. He wants the land and castle that is his. He wants his treacherous uncle to pay for taking them.

Heading north with his lover, former nun Hild, he finds chaos as the Vikings battle among themselves to consolidate their hold on the region. At the heart of it are men from Uhtred's past - Sven the One-Eyed and Kjartan the Cruel, men of vicious reputation. Still, he has matched such men before.

Then Uhtred suffers a betrayal to rival the treachery that deprived him of his birthright. It will leave him trapped with no hope of escape ...

Uhtred of Bebbanburg's mind is as sharp as his sword. A thorn in the side of the priests and nobles who shape his fate, this Saxon raised by Vikings is torn between the life he loves and the cause he has sworn to serve.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for `The Lords of the North':

`Beautifully crafted story-telling, complete with splendid set-piece battles and relentless derring-do, so gripping that it rarely stops to catch a breath. It demonstrates once again Cornwell's enormous skill as a historical narrator. He would have graced Alfred's court entertaining the guests with his stories.'
Daily Mail

`Cornwell takes the spectres of ninth century history and puts flesh back on their bones. Here is Alfred's world restored - impeccably researched and illuminated with the colour and passion of a master storyteller.'
Justin Pollard, author of `Alfred the Great'

Praise for Bernard Cornwell:

'Bernard Cornwell is a literary miracle. Year after year, hail, rain, snow, war and political upheavals fail to prevent him from producing the most entertaining and readable historical novels of his generation.' Daily Mail

'Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched.' Observer

“Continuing an excellent series”

I'd say it's pretty vital to have read the previous books in the series before starting this one, as the plot continues between books.

This book is as good (if not better) than the two previous novels.... More

“The Lords of the North”

A good read and a change of pace form some of Bernard Cronwell's other works. It's story like Sharpe's will keep me looking forward to the next chapter of the life of Uthred and his quest to take back... More
