At the onset of the tenth century, England is in turmoil. Alfred the Great is dead and Edward, his son, reigns as king. Wessex survives, but peace cannot hold: In The Pagan Lord , loyalties will be divided and men will fall, as every Saxon kingdom is drawn into the bloodiest battle yet with the Danes: The conflict between Dane and Saxon is examined with sympathy and insight-without projecting 21st century values onto cultures now alien to us. In the course of this, he shows how historical novels should be written. A sweeping story.

So why the 3 star rating you ask! If you love his books as I do You are almost certainly going to down-vote my review, I just ask you to hear me out before you do.
Look, I like these books. They are fun to read. This is a fine, rip-roaring page turner. Uthred is back with the usual suspects in fine style. Several new or minor characters are introduced or fleshed out. Uthred fights new battles He defeats his enemies through an unbelievable amount of guile, intelligence, personality, courage, military strategy, recklessness, psychology, and luck.
He is often saved by luck. Often in the nick of time, luck comes to the rescue. Did I mention, Uthread's uncanny luck?
If you want a 5 star review from me you better provide more than a page turner. I want character development. I want philosophical dilemmas. I want action. I want a good story. I want characters I care about. In short, I want closer to what Bernard Cornwell gave us in his first several books in this series.
Uthread is a smart man with an abundance of understanding of both military strategy and psychology. Given the way he out-thinks both his enemies and his allies alike, Uthred must be the smartest man alive in Saxon England around the turn of the millennium. In the early books in this series, Uthred was a complex character torn between his early Saxon roots, his Pagan, Danish upbringing, and the Saxon entanglements he found himself ensnared in as he tried to assert his destiny as lord of Bebbanburg.
But as the series has progressed - dare I say aged - it has fallen into or should I say back on?? Along the way he fights battles against armies numbering ten times his own, prevailing through his inestimable intellect, his warrior's sixth sense, or the cavalry riding to his defense at the eleventh and three quarters hour. Look, these books are enjoyable page turners.
Cornwell writes engaging action scenes - no!! They are exciting. And finally minor spoilers to follow , something that annoyed me immensely was that he decided to end this book with a cliffhanger. In all his previous books he had the respect for his readers to write a self contained novel which would bring us back for the love of the story and the love of the characters.
Suddenly, it's the season finale of season 7 of the Saxon Tales.

What happens to the boy in Lundeen? His mother? What about the twins? Will Uthred find love with the deaf girl, what of the golden one? For that matter will Uthred find anything at all.
Who shot JR? I feel like I have to emphasize, I read this book non stop.
It IS a page turner. He has found a successful formula and he is milking it. Have him screw it up through some massively stupid, miscalculated yet somehow noble action.
Have him declared "persona-non-grata" by the Saxons. Have him retreat to the Danes actually or metaphorically where he will not only be happier, but accepted for who he is. Have him reject the Danes and ride on his white horse to the rescue of the Saxons who revile him. Have his strategies be repudiated by the saxons. Have him face the dreaded shield wall along with his closest friends and family.
Have him persevere against unimaginable odds. Formatting may be different depending on your device and eBook type. The seventh novel in Bernard Cornwell's number one bestselling series on the making of England and the fate of his great hero, Uhtred of Bebbanburg. Peace in Britain has given Uhtred time to cause trouble - for himself. Branded a pagan abomination by the church, he sails north. For, despite suspecting that Viking leader Cnut Longsword will attack the Saxons again, Uhtred is heading for Bebbanburg, fearing that if he does not act now he will never reclaim his stolen birthright.
Yet Uhtred's fate is bound to the Saxons. To Aethelflaed, bright lady of Mercia and to a dead king's dream of England. For great battles must still be fought - and no man is better at that than Uhtred. 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.
