- The Last Kingdom Series, Book 4
- By: Bernard Cornwell
- Narrated by: Jonathan Keeble
- Length: 12 hrs and 12 mins
The fourth in the best-selling Alfred series from number-one historical novelist, Bernard Cornwell. The year is 885, and England is at peace, divided between the Danish kingdom to the north and Alfred's kingdom of Wessex in the south. But trouble stirs, a dead man has risen and new Vikings have arrived to occupy London. It is a dangerous time, and it falls to Uhtred, half Saxon, half Dane, a man feared and respected the length and breadth of Britain, to expel the Viking raiders and take control of London for Alfred.
Still enjoying the series

Very good reading but ....
I was happy with the reading. The stories of Bernard Cornwell are always excellent. But where is the Historical Note? It’s an excellent and vital part of every one of these novels.
