by | Read by Jamie Glover

Historical Fiction • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

Uhtred of Bebbanburg, raised by the Danes who invaded his native England, joins forces with King Alfred to resist the occupation. The unlikely allies face overwhelming odds in war and on the home front. Jamie Glover narrates the historical fiction with solemnity, capturing tones of fear and exhilaration in battle and bedroom. While Glover lightens his voice slightly to indicate female characters, he maintains a sense of distance from all the novel's many and varied personalities. His scholarly British voice fits the text, imparting historical veracity and fictional gravity. Listeners will find the production even more enjoyable if they have listened to THE LAST KINGDOM, the first book in the trilogy. R.L.L. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
