The Pagan Lord (Uhtreds back)

Shield wall wrecking, chain-mail and arm ring wearing, revenge seeking, hated by the church......Uhtred! He's back for more dark ages adventures in his continuing saga.
I came across this historically set novel accidentally but very happy and excited to find it so had to get it without hesitation. Why? Because I have enjoyed the previous books in this series set during the Dark Ages a helluva lot. I am painting Dark Age figures at the moment as well. This book sees our hero take a pivotal role during another historical battle. I won't spoil it for you if you are going to get it but it is great immersion in a land of mud, blood and shit. Danes are getting ready to try another take over move of the lower part of England. Lots of war gaming inspiration in this book. From skirmish fights to bigger battles. If you like reading and dig the Dark Ages (the setting for Saga) then go and start at the first book. The Last Kingdom by Bernard Cornwell.

Cheers from Brendon (The Kiwi)
