The last unvanquished piece of England, Wessex is eyed
hungrily by the fearsome Viking conquerors. A dispossessed young nobleman,
Uhtred is tied to the imperiled land by birth and marriage but was raised by
the Danish invaders—and he questions where his allegiance must lie. But blood
is his destiny, and when the overwhelming Viking horde attacks out of a wintry
darkness, Uhtred must put aside all hatred and distrust and stand beside his
embattled country’s staunch defender—the fugitive King Alfred.
The Pale Horseman is a gripping, monumental adventure that gives
breathtaking life to one of the most important epochs in English history—yet
another masterwork from New York Times
bestselling author Bernard Cornwell. Download and start listening now!
