This is the 3rd in the series of Saxon Chronicles. Uthred, the hero, travels to Northumbria to settle old scores. His adventures leads him around the region and indeed onto the North Sea to Jutland, Frisia, Frankia, and Iceland. Well paced and well written though there are some incidences that are unbelievably timely. Alfred is mostly in the background but does continue to play a part in the story. At the end of each book the author provides an historical note to inform the reader what was fact and what was fiction. Even the fictional part though brings forth life in these brutal times.
