The Last Kingdom series goes from strength to strength with Uhtred becoming ever more interesting - in so many ways a modern hero, facing a new world, with changing allegiances, but still held by traditional loyalties. As the ninth century wanes, England appears about to be plunged into chaos once more. For the Viking-raised but Saxon-born warrior, Uhtred, whose life seems to shadow the making of England, this presents him with difficult choices. King Alfred is dying and his passing threatens the island of Britain to renewed warfare. Alfred wants his son, Edward, to succeed him but there are other Saxon claimants to the throne as well as ambitious pagan Vikings to the north.

With the return of the brave English sergeant Richard Sharpe, here to battle the mercenary forces of the Mahratta confederation in India-Bernard Cornwell claims his rightful place among the masters of historical narrative. Sharpe's Triumph is a riveting story of betrayal and revenge that, like each new installment in the Sharpe series, was an immediate best-seller around the world. I am a big fan of the Sharpe series and read the books years ago. It's enjoyable to listen to them this go 'round with the narrator's wonderful English accent adding to the experience.
