More About Warriors of the Storm by Bernard Cornwell; Matt BatesOverview
A fragile peace reigns in Wessex, Mercia, and East Anglia. King Alfred s son, Edward, and formidable daughter, AEthelflaed, rule the kingdoms. But all around, the restless Northmen, eyeing the rich lands and wealthy churches, are mounting raids.
Uhtred of Bebbanburg, the kingdoms greatest warrior, controls northern Mercia from the strongly fortified city of Chester. But forces are gathering against him. Northmen allied to the Irish, led by the fierce warrior Ragnall Ivarson, are soon joined by the Northumbrians, and their strength could prove overwhelming. Despite the gathering threat, both Edward and AEthelflaed are reluctant to move out of the safety of their fortifications. With Uhtred s own daughter married to Ivarson s brother, who can be trusted?
In the struggle between family and loyalty, between personal ambition and political commitment, there will be no easy path. But a man with a warrior s courage may be able to find it. Such a man is Uhtred, and this may be his finest hour.
The ninth entry in the epic Saxon Tales series cements New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell s renown as perhaps the greatest writer of historical adventure novels today (Washington Post).
