The Pale Horseman, Paperback / softback Book

The Pale Horseman Paperback / softback

Part of the The Last Kingdom Series series

Description

The second book in the epic and bestselling series that has gripped millions. A hero will be forged from this broken land. As seen on Netflix and BBC around the world. When peace is torn apart by bloody Danish steel, Uhtred must fight to save a king who distrusts him. Skeptical of a treaty between the Vikings and Wessex, Uhtred takes his talent for mayhem to Cornwall, gaining treasure and a mysterious woman on the way.

But when he is accused of massacring Christians, he finds lies can be as deadly as steel. Still, when pious King Alfred flees to a watery refuge, it is the pagan warrior he relies on.

Now Uhtred must fight a battle which will shape history - and confront the Viking with the banner of the white horse ... Uhtred of Bebbanburg's mind is as sharp as his sword.

A thorn in the side of the priests and nobles who shape his fate, this Saxon raised by Vikings is torn between the life he loves and those he has sworn to serve.
