Audio Book Summary

The first installment of Bernard Cornwell’s New York Times bestselling series chronicling the epic saga of the making of England, “like Game of Thrones, but real” (The Observer, London)—the basis for The Last Kingdom, the hit Netflix series.

In the middle years of the ninth century, the fierce Danes stormed onto British soil, hungry for spoils and conquest. Kingdom after kingdom fell to the ruthless invaders until but one realm remained. And suddenly the fate of all England—and the course of history—depended upon one man, one king.

From New York Times bestselling storyteller Bernard Cornwell comes a rousing epic adventure of courage, treachery, duty, devotion, majesty, love, and battle as seen through the eyes of a young warrior who straddled two worlds.

    I rarely love a book enough to write a review, but wow, where do I start? Meticulous historical research. Brilliant storytelling. Excellent character development. I'm listening to the recorded version and the narrator, Jonathan Keeble, is beyond awesome. Five stars for this title, hands down. I've already downloaded the second book in the series and I will probably be obsessively "reading" Bernard Cornwell for months.

    First book in another outstanding series by Bernard Cornwell. As always, the battle scenes are in depth and engaging. Great story that kept me entertained from beginning to end. Only downside is that it has a cliff hanger ending - I can hardly wait to get the sequel!

    This was a great story and the narrator did a fantastic job capturing the personality of the characters. My only issue was that the story did not seem to end on the last CD. Maybe there is a sequal to follow?

    This book is super unique and well paced. It kept me interested the entire time with a very likable character. The descriptions of battles were so captivating I can’t wait to listen to the other 12 books.

    I loved this book. The character development, the plot, the way you can visualize what’s going on was amazing. The narration was wonderful. I normally don’t like narrators because they are kind of boring or they read too fast or too slow, but he did an amazing job. I’ve already started the second book.
