Description

Uhtred arrives at Lundene expecting to move quickly, but Edward has been convinced by his advisors to wait, in part to await Sigelf and his 700 Kentish warriors.

At one point Uhtred wondered whether if the Romans had not invaded these islands would we ever have crossed a river. I go from a corruptible to an incorruptible crown; where no disturbance can be, no disturbance in the world. I was feeling slightly fatigued from continuous epic fantasy reads, and this was the right book for me to take a break and recharge.As a king he has chosen the path of religion, and his forgiveness of his enemies will be paid in blood by the succesion wars that are sure to follow. Harry's letters home to his family describe the conflict with a poignant immediacy, even 90+ years on, detailing everything from the action in battle to the often amusing incidents of life amongst his comrades. Two men succeeded in reaching us, despite the smoking barricade, and one of those two fell to Wasp-Sting coming up from beneath his shield-rim. He is still the shield of Wessex, but the young Edward must learn that he will not always have the towering might of Uhtred at his back; one day he will grow too old to draw Serpent’s Breath for Wessex, and one day Wessex will have to fend for itself.

El edificio que ha construido para resistir los embates daneses parece que empieza a tambalearse, ante las dudas que genera el heredero Eduardo: los sajones que están en la órbita de Wessex, pero que no son sajones del oeste empiezan a dudar y a plantearse escenarios alternativos, Kent, la Mercia Sajona, un antiguo sobrino de Alfredo, Etelwoldo, relegado en su ascenso al trono empieza a moverse y buscar aliados en el Danelaw, donde tienen nuevos caudillos, que afilan sus cuchillos esperando la muerte del rey y el caos previsible para abalanzarse sobre una presa tanto tiempo anhelada. Another great book in the series, which could have got repetitive as it's now on the 6th book, but Cornwell manages to take a new twist on things in each book. Probably lacking a little of the twinkle and sparkle that I want from this series, especially since I had read The Burning Land right before Death of Kings and it served up all the twinkle and sparkle that a girl like me could need.His father was a Canadian airman, and his mother, who was English, a member of the Women's Auxiliary Air Force. Uhtred arrives at Lundene expecting to move quickly, but Edward has been convinced by his advisers to wait, so they wait for months. It is extraordinary how many variations of Aethel-something can be crammed into a couple of dynasties.
