The Burning Land by Bernard Cornwell
This is a story about Uhtred based in the ninth century. King Alfred is in failing health and the Danes see opportunities to attack Wessex. Unfortunately Uhtred is still under oath to the king and is his secret weapon, as he was raised with the Danes and so has intimate knowledge of their fighting strategies. However, when Uhtred loses his wife he starts to drift and decides to break his oath to the king, who has never repaid his service. When the Danes collect for a final assault on Wessex and Mercia, Uhtred is summoned back to defend the Saxons once again due to an oath given with love to the Kings daughter who is in trouble.
I do love these stories, and this one was even more exciting as it follows on from the recent television series. I have no idea how true to history the story is but it is definitely one to read/listen to!
Thank you for looking
