The kingdom that consisted of three out of four parts of England was facing a chaos in the start of the second chapter but later everything was restored to normal. Lives were lost and precious ones too but the power of the crown still remains.
Bernard Cornwell also attached sorcery with the history of England that takes the book towards a bit of fiction but then again it was limited to fortune telling. No real magic was used in the battlefield or for the summoning of the devilish creatures that one can expect if there is a sorceress in the story.
She only advised Uhtred to change sides in the war and that’s all, the rest was up to the warrior who was raised by the Danes that he slaughtered in the battlefield. Though Uhtred helped Alfred in becoming successful in the battle in The Pale Horseman but now he is sure that he selected the wrong side. Alfred was not the type with whom he could coexist thus he shifts route and is on his own once again as was seen in The Last Kingdom.
Uhtred along with Hild moves to north where rebels are making a hell of a resistance here he finds the true face of the Vikings who betray him. In such situation the man who provides him help and shelter is again King Alfred that man he never liked. Thus it is his fate that always takes him to the man he does not want to be with, in the first place. Change of narrator this time and Tom Sellwood is also not a bad pick as he too has also done a fantastic job.
