With Britain in an uneasy state of peace, Uhtred of Bebbanburg at last has the chance to take back the home his traitorous uncle stole from him so many years ago -- and which his scheming cousin still occupies. But he will need all the skills he has learned in a lifetime of war to make his dream come true. --

Booklist Review: "Cornwell's latest entry in the rousing Saxon Tales series, following Warriors of the Storm (2016), will not disappoint devoted fans who can't read enough about the adventures of Uhtred of Bebbanburg. This time around, an older, wiser, and more reflective Uhtred stands front and center. Battered but never defeated, he is still determined to recapture Bebbanburg, the ancestral home wrested away by his uncle and now in the possession of his cousin. The kingdom that would be England is still partitioned, with various factions holding court in Wessex, East Anglia, and Mercia. Uhtred, as always, is focused on Northumbria, but he must outwit and outfight Danes, Norsemen, and Scots in order to reclaim his birthright. Old friends, enemies, and family members populate the pages, providing familiar touchstones as a well-seasoned Uhtred battles his way ever closer to achieving his ultimate goal.--Flanagan, Margaret Copyright 2016 Booklist"
