Description of this Book

The fate of a young nation rests in the hands of a reluctant warrior in the thrilling sixth volume of the New York Times bestselling Saxon Tales series. Following the intrigue and action of The Burning Land and Sword Song, this latest chapter in Bernard Cornwell's epic saga of England is a gripping tale of divided loyalties and mounting chaos. At a crucial moment in time, as Alfred the Great lays dying, the fate of all--Angles, Saxons, and Vikings alike--hangs desperately in the balance. For all fans of classic Cornwell adventures, such as Agincourt and Stonehenge, and for readers of William Dietrich's Hadrian's Wall or Robert E. Howard's Bran Mak Morn, the stunning Death of Kings will prove once again why the Wall Street Journal calls Bernard Cornwell the most prolific and successful historical novelist in the world today.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review [M]asterful. . . . The surprise is that Cornwell's love scenes are as deft as his action scenes, though far fewer, of course--all driven by a hard-shelled, sporadically soft-hearted, always charismatic protagonist. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
