The Flame Bearer
The Flame Bearer | Bernard Cornwell
11 posts | 15 read | 7 to read
The next installment of Bernard Cornwells bestselling series chronicling the epic saga of the making of England, "like Game of Thrones, but real" (Observer, London)the basis for The Last Kingdom, the hit television series coming to Netflix in Fall 2016. From the day it was stolen from me I had dreamed of recapturing Bebbanburg. The great fort was built on a rock that was almost an island, it was massive, it could only be approached on land by a single narrow trackand it was mine. Britain is in a state of uneasy peace. Northumbrias Viking ruler, Sigtryggr, and Mercias Saxon Queen Aethelflaed have agreed a truce. And so Englands greatest warrior, Uhtred of Bebbanburg, at last has the chance to take back the home his traitorous uncle stole from him so many years agoand which his scheming cousin still occupies. But fate is inexorable and the enemies Uhtred has made and the oaths he has sworn combine to distract him from his dream of recapturing Bebbanburg. New enemies enter into the fight for Englands kingdoms: the redoubtable Constantin of Scotland seizes an opportunity for conquest and leads his armies south. Britains precarious peace threatens to turn into a war of annihilation. But Uhtred is determined that nothing, neither the new enemies nor the old foes who combine against him, will keep him from his birth right. He is the Lord of Bebbanburg, but he will need all the skills he has learned in a lifetime of war to make his dream come true. The latest chapter in Bernard Cornwells "violent, absorbing historical saga," The Flame Bearer confirms Bernard Cornwells title as "perhaps the greatest writer of historical adventure novels today" (Washington Post).

Finally. That‘s all I‘ll say. And satisfyingly so at that.

I can't get enough of this series. In surprising moments, a flash of humor amidst grit. Prolonged war scenes wear on me, but I can't skip them because when I do, one of his friends dies and I wonder where they went.

Ok. They promised me that Uhtred would begin his assault on Bebbanburg to reclaim his birthright as Lord of Bebbanburg. Book No. 9 so it‘s about time.

LeahBergen @Melissa_J Nope, that‘s the Arthurian series. The first of the Uthred books is 1y
TrishB @LeahBergen 👍🏻 thanks, mixing my series now! 1y
LeahBergen I only know because I‘m my husband‘s “personal book shopper” and I‘ve bought him all the series. 😂😂 I‘ve only read about 6 of the Uthred books so far, though. 1y
TrishB @LeahBergen I‘ve read all of Uthred- I think they‘re more about the character now than any history! 1y

I cannot believe I‘ve read ten of these novels. I might read ten more. I blame Ragnar and Floki for leading me to Uhtred and his quest to regain his ancestral home. I really thought this was the last book in this series and I would be free but Cornwell seems to have other plans. Oh well!

yay 😀 at last Uhtred captures his castle! I wasn't sure this was ever going to happen. If you have enjoyed the adventures so far, you will like this. Uhtred has some of the best one-liners ever!
