Description

Experience has taught him when to strike and when to defend; he knows how to survive war and the schemers that will always try to drag him down into the mud.

I've probably said this in some reviews but I remember having the first book in the series with me at the hospital visiting my mom before she passed away the same year. A reviewer for National Public Radio said, "His characters are vividly drawn, betrayals lurk around every corner, the humor is as sharp as the swords, and the action is non-stop.Oliver Cromwell, who died a disillusioned man in 1658, had failed to create a working Parliament and his incompetent son and heir, Richard, was forced to resign. He named his chief protagonist Richard Sharpe, a rifleman involved in most major battles of the Peninsular War. He then joined BBC's Nationwide and was promoted to become head of current affairs at BBC Northern Ireland.

Awesome descriptive battles as usual and I’m really enjoying the relationship between Uthred and Aethelflaed grow. Uhtred begs King Edward to come and attack, but he refuses and commands Uhtred to retreat to Lundene where his army is gathering. I had struggled against him and for him, I had cursed him and thanked him, despised him and admired him. The sixth installment in the adventures of Uhtred of Bebbanburg, impatiently awaited and worth the wait.Uhtred snaps and snarls and swears at priests, delightfully crochety as ever, but Alfred's impending death and his own advancing years (he is startled to find his beard gray, and has to admit that at forty-five he is officially old) have given Uhtred a more elegiac bent. The novel shines in other aspects, like the transition of Uhtred from an impulsive, berserker and bloodthirsty killing machine into a strong leader of men, a tactician and a wily manipulator of information, setting traps for his adversaries and turning their own tricks against them.
