This book was actually the first Cornwell one I read, but I wanted to reread so that I could say I read the Saxon Chronicles in order. It's another book focusing on Uhtred and his attempt to retake his ancestral home. I'm a fan of historical fiction and this book does not disappoint with plenty of history and violence. I didn't like this book quite as much as some of the others and I think I'm ready for the series to wrap up.
I highly recommend this book to fans of historical fiction.
