I really enjoyed this one! Uhtred remains compelling. ( )

o carte foarte bună, mai bună decât destule din serie, dar sincer pentru mine ultima - m-am plictisit considerabil de Uthred. Probabil nicio serie nu ar trebui să „trăiască” mai mult de 10 cărți, iar aceasta este a 11-a (și în eng au mai apărut deja alte 2). ( )

Only two left, love this series, can’t wait to read them all but will be way sad to see it end. ( )

Uhtred has won back his family home, but, threatened from all sides by enemies, old and new, he doesn’t have long to enjoy his victory. In Mercia, rebellion is in the air as King Edward tries to seize control. In Wessex, rival parties scramble to settle on the identity of the next king. And, across the country, invading Norsemen continue their relentless incursion, ever hungry for land. ( )
