あらすじ・解説

The master of historical fiction presents the iconic story of King Alfred and the making of a nation.

As the ninth century wanes, England appears about to be plunged into chaos once more. For the Viking-raised but Saxon-born warrior, Uhtred, whose life seems to shadow the making of England, this presents him with difficult choices.

King Alfred is dying and his passing threatens the island of Britain to renewed warfare. Alfred wants his son, Edward, to succeed him but there are other Saxon claimants to the throne as well as ambitious pagan Vikings to the north.

Uhtred‘s loyalty - and his vows - were to Alfred, not to his son, and despite his long years of service to Alfred, he is still not committed to the Saxon cause. His own desire is to reclaim his long lost lands and castle to the north. But the challenge to him, as the king’s warrior, is that he knows that he will either be the means of making Alfred’s dream of a united and Christian England come to pass or be responsible for condemning it to oblivion.

This novel is a dramatic story of the power of tribal commitment and the terrible difficulties of divided loyalties.

This is the making of England magnificently brought to life by the master of historical fiction.

Poor Narration

Although an improvement on the previous narrator, it simply isn't as good as the original narrator, Jonathan Keeble. The accent is not brilliant but worse, the pronunciation: Steapa pronounced 'steepa' instead of 'Stee-app-a"and worse Ragnar pronounced as Rangar - unforgivable editing. I shall probably return all the other books in the series and order them as Kindle books as this is driving me to distraction and completely spoiling the story

Great series

Another great episode in the Saxon stories, the battle at the end was well written and narrated. The narrator by the way has rapidly grown on me after the recent change. Pagan lord has been downloaded and started to continue Uhtreds story.

Another Great Yarn

I'm going through the whole of The Last Kingdom series and this was, as usual, very enjoyable. the narration by Matt Bates is not as good as the person who did the first 4 books but, still, I enjoyed it lots.

Got used to Matt Bates now

A fantastic book with a great performance. Matt Bates was a big change from the previous narrator but he really comes into his own in this book, I look forward to the next one.

Disappointed with narrator

Having listened to the all the previous volumes, I feel spoilt with truly excellent narrators. THowever, this one was a bit flat and the irish character's accent a grating half American one. It's really tough to follow John Lee though. I won't be listening to the rest of this series.

Brilliant!

Bernard does it again. Utred saves the kingdom yet again. Traitors abound and Edward is indecisive being advised by the clergy instead of his warriors on how to battle.

MY FAVOURITE SERIES

Once again, the story carries you through to the end with full battle descriptions. Can't wait for the next one.
