The Death of Kings

Jim Hodge writes:

I have just finished the latest--but apparently not the last--of Bernard Cornwell's historical novel series on Alfred creating England: The Death of Kings. They are a fascinating combination of sometimes sparse history and intelligent conjecture to make a rousing good story. And the narrator, as a grumpy Viking ally of Alfred, is ingenious. Highly recommended for any who are as curious as the author about the creation of England and like a good read for a long night.

Thanks, Jim.
