bookshelves: historical-fiction
Recommended for: Adults with an interest in historical fiction of ninth century England.
Read in November, 2007

The Saxon Chronicles series follows the fictional warrior, Uhtred, in an ongoing conflict between the Christian English, and pagan Danes for control of ninth century England. While the main protagonist is fictional, most of the other prominent characters and events are based on actual characters and events. It is a fascinating look into the culture, people, and conflicts of the time. Cornwell’s characters are believable and interesting and you will become utterly immersed in the struggles. The brutality and cruelty of the time are faithfully reproduced in all of Cornwell’s work, accordingly this is probably a series best reserved for adults, probably a mature seventeen or older.
