Book Review - Death of Kings

Death of Kings (The Saxon Stories, #6)Death of Kings by Bernard Cornwell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love this series about the consolidation of England under the reign of Alfred The Great.

Uhtred has spent his life and his money in the service of the dying Alfred and then his son Edward in order to fight the Danes and others who don't share Alfred's vision of one great land under a Christian God. There are graphic fights, politics, murders, intrigue and romance. The heathen in me especially enjoys Uhtred's goading of the corrupt clergy that surrounded the devout Alfred.

The entire series is a fine set of historical fiction.
