The third book in a continuing series about a man who lived in two worlds. He was born a Saxon, but stolen and then raised as a Dane in the late 800's in England. Set during the beginning of Alfred the Great's rule, he knew them all. This book really brings the time alive. Uthred goes from slave to king in this one. He is sold by a friend, the king, to win allegiance from another king. It doesn't work. Instead Uthred is able to escape after several years and goes back to his home to claim what is his. Full of fights and battles, this book does not disappoint in the action dept. but also has a romance.
