This epic from acclaimed storyteller Bernard Cornwell takes listeners back to England circa 885 A.D., a country divided between Danes and Saxons. With such an extensive pallet to work with, narrator Jamie Glover offers a memorable reading that will capture listeners' attention from the start and keep them intrigued throughout. Glover's deep, throaty British tone is the perfect complement to the story and gives it a stark reality. He creates a compelling portrayal of the conflicted central character, Uhtred, a vicious man who has settled into fatherhood. Glover knows how to drive the story and keep listeners involved. L.B.
