I’ve wanted to reclaim Bebbanburg since the day it was taken from me. The massive fort was erected on a rocky outcropping that was almost an island. It was vast, accessible only by land via a single narrow trail, and it belonged to me.
The United Kingdom is at an uneasy peace. Sigtryggr, the Viking ruler of Northumbria, and Aethelflaed, the Saxon queen of Mercia, had reached an agreement. So Uhtred of Bebbanburg, England’s greatest warrior, has the chance to reclaim the home his disloyal uncle stole from him so many years ago – and which his scheming cousin still holds.
But fate is inexorable, and Uhtred’s enemies and oaths conspire to keep him from realizing his aim of recapturing Bebbanburg. The redoubtable Constantin of Scotland seizes an opportunity for conquest and leads his army south, bringing new foes into the war for England’s kingdoms. The fragile peace in Britain risks devolving into a nuclear war.
But Uhtred is adamant that nothing, not new rivals or old foes allied against him, will prevent him from claiming his birthright. He is the Lord of Bebbanburg, but achieving his goal will require all of the abilities he has acquired over a lifetime of fighting. The Flame Bearer is the latest installment in Bernard Cornwell’s “violent, engrossing historical story,” confirming his status as “probably the best writer of historical adventure books today.
