Description

Death of Kings continues the story of Uhtred, this time through the tumultous years which followed the death of Alfred the Great as two men struggle to inherit the crown of Wessex. The original Harper Brothers Company was established in New York City in 1817 and over the years published the works of Mark Twain, the Bronte Sisters, Thackeray, Dickens, John F Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr.

Together we would make reputation, we would have men in halls across Britain telling the story of our exploit.The reason this joke lodged itself in my brain is because i was mid-journey through Bernard Cornwell's wonderful telling of the creation of the kingdom of England from the conflicting kingdoms of Mercia, Wessex, East Anglia and Northumbria and I was in the desperately awkward state of attempting to differentiate the varying characters whose names layer over each other and echo back and forth.

He named his chief protagonist Richard Sharpe, a rifleman involved in most major battles of the Peninsular War. Publisher's original black paper-covered boards, blocked and lettered gilt back, sage green end papers. 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. Man, how do i love Uthred: he is in an interesting age right now , most of the famous warriors"if not all of them|" are already dead at this period of time and he has become a legend feared and envied by all and a target for all the young warriors seeking fame , gold and glory , but Uthred's experience shows itself : knowing when to slaughter and when to hold back, when to be bold and when to be cautious helps him in this fantastic novel. Bernard Cornwell is a prolific author, and usually reliable to deliver a solid historical novel with clearly sketched battle scenes and heroic deeds of valor, yet not all things are created equal and I have come to appreciate some of his stuff more than others.These seem only small whinges and in some ways they are but they do jar and as a result sometimes work against what is otherwise a wonderfully imagined world.
