Bernard Cornwell has done it again. Another gripping, page-turning read that I didn't want to put down, and I found my mind drifting back to the story during my day, which is always a sign that a book has done its job and gotten its hooks into me.
I'm liking old Uhtred so much - he doesn't suffer fools but has a streak of kindness that he tries hard to hide.
The mix of historical detail, heart-felt characterisation and edge of your seat battle scenes strike a perfect blend. Eleven books in and th

It is hard to believe Uhtred is just as interesting in this 11th book of the series as he was in the first. Well, almost. One of my my favorite scenes in any book comes in the first book of the series when he and King Alfred and what we know as England now comes down to a fight in a marsh with the Vikings. One of the most truly captivating pieces of writing I have ever read. But I digress, Uhtred although aging has plenty of tricks up his sleeve and battles left to fight in this latest entry.

Book 11 in The Last Kingdom series published 2018.

Eleven books into the trials and tribulations of Uhtred of Bebbanburg and its still as fresh and exciting as book one.
Uhtred, after years of fighting and planning revenge on his hated uncle is once again lord of his ancestral home, Bebbanberg.
It has been no easy road to for Uhtred to achieve his life’s ambition and I have fought by his side from day one.
He is no longer the dashing hero of yesteryear but is now an old man in his sixties.

We’re upto book 11 in the series AND this time we also get an age for Uhtred, (we’re always told he’s “old” in the prior few books) he’s 60! He’s also still in the saddle & fighting at the head of his men. As I always say when I settle down to read ANOTHER book in the series..... I think this series needs to wrap up soon? I think i started saying that back at book 9?

I had three goes at this review having changed it after reading part 2 & then again after part 3.

This is the last book in The Last Kingdom series by Bernard Cornwell. In this episode, Uhtred is an old man, but still a warrior at heart. It is an interesting story, where sorcerers take the center stage. Of course, the sorcerers do not have magical powers, but many people living in that age do not know that. So, when they cast a spell, some people believe in that spell and act accordingly, themselves bringing about the predicted doom. And in this story, there is a pagan sorcerer as well as a C ...more

“Wyrd bið ful aræd”

This is a brutal book. Not a surprise for those of us who have followed these chronicles of Uhtred of Bebbanburg and the period in which the Saxons were able to repel the Norse and Danes and forge the beginning of England. But, even at this late date, that goal was still up for grabs and this book makes it clear that there was no peace in the land from the border with Scotland down to t
This is the 11th book in the Saxon Stories series by Bernard Cornwell. I LOVE THIS SERIES. It really is in my top 5 of favorite series'. Uhtred is a dynamic character. He is getting up there in age, and physically he is starting to slow down, but his mind is what is getting him out of trouble. (Usually it is getting him into trouble.) Reading this one, makes me want to binge-watch the series on Netflix yet again. I just can't get enough. So 5 whole stars for this one.

Maybe it's just because I hadn't read and Uhtred in a while but that was the best in some time. I thought book 10 was the perfect place to end it and had lamented the continuation of the series being more about not killing the cash cow. This book made it worth being wrong.

I had put off reading this book, scared the Saxon Stories were finally going to be over, but with another book scheduled for release it felt like it was finally time to put my fears aside.

I read a handful of other reviews on GoodReads when I finished, and multiple times I saw this series accused of being formulaic, and perhaps it is, but I'm not one to mind formulaic when the formula works.  What I love about these books is the characters.  This late in the game I do find myself missing some of

Bernard Cornwell's eleventh entry in his Saxon/Last Kingdom series brings us a wealth of new characters & some old favourites too.
Uhtred of Bebbanburg is now over sixty years old, which even he admits isn't old-it's ancient. However, he is still a commanding figure & is supported by many loyal allies. Cornwell keeps the perfect balance (as always) between tragedy, comedy, action, plotting & decent characterisation. Of course Cornwell's Uhtred novels cannot go on forever. After all wyrd bio ful a

Another very enjoyable read by Bernard Cornwell. I love Uhtred's military strategic thinking!

Let me share with you at least some major points to explain my reasons for loving this series so much:

* Astonishing storytelling skills. Bernard Cornwell brought 9th and 10th century England alive for me.

* Unforgettable narrator. Uhtred of Bebbanburg is unapologetic and ruthless yet lovable and admiration worthy character with brilliant military strategic mind. He is a true hero!

* Complex and fascinating

Uhtred fan forever.
It’s tragic. I would never have believed I would fall out of love with Uhtred. War of the Wolf, 11th in the series, has been half read for months now. I keep going back to it and trying to get back into it but I just can’t. I’ve been waiting for Uhtred to die for the last couple of books in the series but he’s still going strong. Now that yet another book has been published, I’ve decided to throw in the towel. Has Cornwell wrung this series dry? In my opinion yes, he has. Others will still be lo ...more

11 down and 1 to go before I am all caught up with the Saxon Stories! The 13th and final book will be out this Fall and I cannot WAIT! I am also missing the adaptation show, The Last Kingdom something fierce! War of the Wolf by Bernard Cornwell is the 11th book in the series.

Uhtred is almost in his twilight years now, but he is still a formidable leader and a commanding presence in the battlefield. Wessex, Mercia and East Anglia are now all under one rule, and it is only a matter of time before King Alfred’s vision of England is finally achieved (and only if the Dane-ruled Northumbria will easily allow it). Meanwhile, nobles from Wessex are already checking and/or shifting loyalties as their king lies dying, Mercia is in rebellion, and Uhtred is led into a ruse by a ...more

The best Uhtred book in a dog's age! I've lately been disappointed in Uhtred books but this one redeems the last few. Cornwell gets back to basics in this book telling a Uhtred tale with all of its Saxony goodness.

Since Uhtred regained his castle I've been less interested in continuing this series. And at first, while beginning War of the Wolf, I was somewhat bored. However, Cornwell dragged me back in. Well done, sir, well done.

As seems appropriate for a character as resourceful, skilled, and self-confident as Uhtred of Bebbanburg, he goes from strength to strength. In addition to a set of bestselling novels, collectively dubbed The Saxon Tales, Uhtred has a television series to his name: The Last Kingdom, just renewed for its third year by Netflix.

Here in his eleventh adventure, War of the Wolf, Uhtred should be enjoying the fruits of his labors over the last ten books, but of course, that story would be no fun to rea

This is the 11th installment in Cornwell’s Saxon Kingdom series; and it is clearly one of his best. Uhtred of Bebbanburg is now over 60, and a savvy warrior to the bone. In this offering, Uhtred and his army fall for a ruse to keep him away from Northumbria. The Danish Norseman, Skoll then attacks Euferevic (York) in an attempt to become King of Northumbria. The city is able to fend him off, but not without sacrifice. The current King of Northumbria, Sigtryggr Ivarson, vows revenge—along with Uh ...more
This is the 11th book of the life of Uhtred of Bebbanburg. When I first started the book we were introduced to a little boy and now he is in his 60s. I absolutely love The Last Kingdom series. It has been truly a journey reading the tale of Uhtred of Bebbanburg. His quest, his success, his setbacks, fights, loves, friendships, enemies.

This is one of my favourite historical fiction series and Bernard Cornwell is one gifted author!

5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

On an off day, Mr. Cornwell still writes better historical fiction than most other authors on their best days. I found this entry to the author’s “Saxon Shores” series not quite up to the author's standard set in earlier entries of the series. In fact, I found it a bit formulaic and quite frankly, a bit “talky”.

The plot of the novel can easily be divided into three parts. In the first part, Uthred receives a message to go to Chester on the other side of Northumbria and help relieve a siege of th

Bloody fabulous! Completely formulaic, yes, but so amazing that it's no matter. Oaths, revenge quests, deceits, out-maneuverings, bloody confrontations and plenty of scathing commentary on the Church. Doesn't get better than this.

I was worried #11 might just be too much for me and maybe I'd be over it. Not even close.

Bernard Cornwell’s War of the Wolf is the latest, but still not the final chapter of The Last Kingdom series. Uhtred is still riding against his enemies. He is now over sixty years old and a bit long in the tooth. Nevertheless, he’s still snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. I don’t think I’m giving away any spoilers by relating that.
It’s amazing that Cornwell can pull it off, but he does. The series never gets old. Cornwell makes allowances for his aging hero, putting him in the third lin

This exciting book is the 11th volume of "the Last Kingdom" series, which is also one of my favourite TV-series, featuring Uhtred of Bebbanburg, from the highly acclaimed author Bernard Cornwell.
To read this story in a somewhat easier way the author has included and documented at the beginning of the book a list of Place Names, and there it also contains a well-drawn map of the areas which will play an important part in this tale.
At the end of the book you'll notice a very well defined and expla

“Christians like to dream of the perfect world, a place where there is no fighting, where sword-blades are hammered into plowshares, and where the lion, whatever that is, sleeps with the lamb. It is a dream. There has always been war and there will always be war. So long as one man wants another man’s wife, or another man’s land, or another man’s cattle, or another man’s silver, so long will there be war. And so long as one priest preaches that his god is the only god or the better god there will be war.” 6 likes
