The Pagan Lord

by Bernard Cornwell

Harpercollins (uk) | September 30, 2013 | Trade Paperback

The Pagan Lord is rated 4 out of 5 by 2.

The seventh novel in Bernard Cornwell's number one bestselling series The Warrior Chronicles, on the making of England and the fate of his great hero, Uhtred of Bebbanburg.

Alfred the Great is dead and Edward his son reigns as king. Wessex survives but peace cannot hold. The Danes in the north, led by Viking Cnut Longsword, stand ready to invade and will never rest until the emerald crown is theirs.

Uhtred, once Alfred's great warrior but now out of favour with the new king, must lead a band of outcasts north to recapture his old family home, that great Northumbrian fortress, Bebbanburg.

Loyalties will be divided and men will fall, as every Saxon kingdom is drawn into the bloodiest battle yet with the Danes; a war which will decide the fate of every king, and the entire English nation.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cornwell cuts off the series. I just finished the book! I bet this book is written by a ghost writer. The book is scripted or plotted by Cornwell but does not really have his quality.This book is a bail, a crapout, to end the series quick just like Starbuck Chronicles. Characters are killed just to be expeditious. Although the book finishes the series, it fails to address well developed story lines developed in earlier books. A Cornwell lover, I was disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Historical Fiction at its finest Bernard Cornwell continues his astonishing legacy of excellent novels. Mr. Cornwell's ability to weave intricate stories and compelling characters within some of histories most engaging times, leaves him miles ahead of any other historical fiction author (Conn Iggulden would be a close second). I highly suggest this book, or any other in his series of books including the Sharpe series, the Warlord series (a very fresh take on the Arthurian legend) or the Grail series. You can't go wrong with Bernard Cornwell!
