I have just finished reading all of the Saxon Tales (“The Last Kingdom, The Pale Horseman, Lords Of The North, Sword Song, The Burning Land and hopefully many more still to come) by Bernard Cornwell. They are Historical Fiction novels about 8th-9th century Wessex and King Alfred the Great and His battles against the Danes (Long before England). And about the events in that time that are narrated by a fictional man named Uhtred Ragnarson (Uhtredson) from His point of view and so far I love them and I hope that many more are published in the future. I recommend that You should check them out and read them. Here are some Book Covers.
