Bernard Cornwell continues his rousing and brutal "Saxon Novels" series with the story of the young hero Guthred who has claims to be King of a region of Cumberland. However Guthred lacks the skills of war- and deal-making necessary to take power, and he turn to the assistance of Uhtred, a warrior under the Saxon King Alfred. Filled with brawny valor and meaty characters, LORDS OF THE NORTH delivers top-notch historical storytelling.
