批評家のレビュー

"The best battle scenes of any writer I've ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive." (George R. R. Martin)
"A tense, powerful and compulsive story." ( The Times)
"Strong narrative, vigourous action and striking characterisation, Cornwell remains king of the territory he has staked out as his own." ( Sunday Times)
"Blood, divided loyalties and thundering battles." ( The Times)
"A violent, absorbing historical saga, deeply researched and thoroughly imagined." ( Washington Post)

あらすじ・解説

The new novel in Bernard Cornwell's number-one best-selling series on the making of England and the fate of his great hero, Uhtred of Bebbanburg.

BBC2's major autumn 2015 TV show The Last Kingdom is based on the first two books in the series.

A fragile peace is about to be broken.... King Alfred's son, Edward, and formidable daughter, Æthelflaed, rule Wessex, Mercia and East Anglia. 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 rising up 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 Æthelflaed are reluctant to move out of the safety of their fortifications.

But 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.

Amazing book part of a spellbounding series

Narrater Matt Bates is an artist. The writer is a magician with a pen. Recommend the whole series.

Entertaining

I like Matt Bates' work. He's top-notch performing this series. Cornwell should continue this series using the protagonist's soon as a new hero. Very enjoyable.

His usual high standard

I personally believe this series has gone on for too long. It should have been tied up, with Uhtred retaking Bebbanburg at least four books ago.
However, Cornwell is such a great writer that, although I feel the story overall isn't as powerful as it could have been in a shorter series, I still read or listen (as here) to each new book as soon as they come out!
The previous novel (Pagan Lord if I recall correctly) I felt was a bit meandering, and this one starts much the same, with not a lot happening - certainly no blood or thunder - for a while, and I was starting to worry. But it soon picks up and Uhtred heads off to Ireland and returns again, killing and mutilating lots of enemies and even setting up a new king along the way.
The supporting characters, like his daughter and her husband, are great - just as blood-thirsty as Uhtred himself, yet, like him, still likable!

It's good stuff and the end suggests Bebbanburg may, finally, be the focus next time around.
I hope so.
The narrator isn't as good as the guy that did Cornwell's King Arthur series. I don't know how old this fellow is, but his VOICE makes him sound like he's in his early-mid twenties. Since this story is told from Uhtred's point of view, and Uhtred is an older man, the whole thing just seems off. To his credit though, he reads well and has a good range of accents, even if some of them don't quite come off every time!

Overall, if you have enjoyed this series so far, you will like this one just as much, possibly even more than some of them.
Bernard Cornwell really is a master of his trade!

Recommended.

average story.

the narrator has changed how he pronounces some of the characters names which is pretty annoying. The story was OK nothing really to intriguing unlike the earlier stories in this series.i think Bernard Cornwell is circling with this character. He needs to decide what he is doing with him soon.

Another gem

A superlative performance by Matt Bates. The characterisation truly brings the so called dark ages back to life as you find yourself caught up in the bloody intrigues of the formation of England.

A cracking good listen

What made the experience of listening to Warriors of the Storm the most enjoyable?

This was one of the very best in this series. The writing was taut, quick and exciting. No padding and every word counted.I was almost breathless in places and the task I was supposed to be doing while listening, often got forgotten and I simply .... listened!Matt Bates captures the voices and makes it all spring into life. I felt I was in the shield wall and I felt the thrill of the battle. It was wonderful.Now I have to wait for the next book but I suspect I will listen to this one again, at least once more!
Bernard Cornwell is one of my favourite authors and although I have read other books in this genre, no-one can touch him. Long may he write.

Good story bad narrator.

Good story but narrator can't even say the names correctly which takes away from the story itself.

Rains pronounced Raynar really? it's not a tough this is the first book in the series

Another great story from Mr Cornwell

The only way I'll stop buying this series is when I've finished it! Action all the way telling the stories of Mediaeval Britain. This one had comedy as well. On with the next one.

I could listen to this again and again

The humour comes through just as I'm sure the author intends thanks to some great narration. It's a really good tale of times when loyalty and beliefs made the man but this take also brings fear as a ruling quality. Nicely done
