*A brand new companion to the Last Kingdom series, Uhtred’s Feast, is available to pre-order now*

The No.1 Sunday Times bestseller and the epic conclusion to the globally bestselling historical series.

A divided kingdom

An impossible choice

The ultimate battle . . .

After a lifetime of fighting, the great warrior Lord Uhtred is ready to hang up his sword. But as long as the kingdom remains divided, peace is fragile – and Uhtred will never be safe in his Northumbrian fortress.

As kings in the north and south grow more bloodthirsty for power, history marches inexorably towards war. And Uhtred has no choice but to throw himself into the fire.

In the most terrible battle Britain has ever experienced, with the kingdom’s future resting on a knife edge, Uhtred takes his stand on one side of the shield wall. Only fate will decide the outcome…

Absolutely Fabulous

Bernard, you took me from this 21st century back into the 9th and 10th. So enveloped by the environment of that time I smelled and felt, rthe sweat, the blood, the smoke. I was right there! Thank You Bernard Cornwell for the amazing History Lesson. You are indeed my favoured Author. Referred to others.
