'The best battle scenes of any writer I've ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive' - George R.R. Martin
Following on from the explosive events of The Flame Bearer, War of the Wolf is the eleventh novel in the bestselling series The Last Kingdom (also known as The Saxon Stories), now adapted for a major television series.
In the battle for power, two enemies will collide
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 ulfhedinn, 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 hoards.
