Sword Song by Bernard Cornwell

Sword Song is the four book in Cornwell's Saxon Tales and does not disappoint.  Cornwell is a master of historical fiction and manages to make history come alive.  This particular series focuses on the mostly fictitious Uhtred of Bebbanburg and how he fulfills his oath of duty to Alfred the Great.

There is plenty of violence, cursing, adventure and history to satisfy even the most casual of readers so this book and Cornwell's others is highly recommended.
