As the last unvanquished piece of England, Wessex is eyed hungrily by the fearsome Viking conquerors. Uhtred, a dispossessed young nobleman, is tied to the imperiled land by birth and marriage but was raised by the Danish invaders--and he questions where his allegiance must lie. But blood is his destiny, and when the overwhelming Viking horde attacks out of a wintry darkness, Uhtred must put aside all hatred and distrust and stand beside his embattled country's staunch defender--the fugitive King Alfred.

New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell's The Pale Horseman is a gripping, monumental adventure that gives breathtaking life to one of the most important epochs in English history.

"Cornwell's characters are vividly drawn, betrayals lurk around every corner, the humor is as sharp as the swords, and the action is non-stop." --NPR

Enjoying the Uhtred books. It was like catching up with a friend picking up the second one - looking forward to number three.

EXCELLENT! With three of England's four kingdoms conquered, only one man stands between the Danes and the utter annihilation of his country - King Alfred the Great. Uhtred at his warrior worst.
