The Pagan Lord Book Trailer

If you’re looking to satisfy your Game of Thrones fix between seasons, the author who inspired the hit TV series may have the cure. George R. R. Martin praises bestselling author Bernard Cornwell’s action-packed writing, saying:

“Bernard Cornwell does the best battle scenes of any writer I’ve ever read, past or present.”

– George R. R. Martin

And on January 7, Cornwell returns to his epic Saxon Tales series with THE PAGAN LORD, an explosive tale of divided loyalties, bloody battles, and the struggle to unite Britain. At the turn of the 10th century, civil unrest prevails in England following the death of Alfred the Great. As his son Edward takes the throne, the Danes prepare their own ascension, and the great warrior Uhtred leads his people north to recapture his old family home, the fortress of Bebbanberg. In a nation torn in half by war, the fate of the nation rests on one man’s shoulders.
