'Death of Kings,' Bernard Cornwell (out now)

King Alfred has succeeded in uniting the Saxon kingdoms under a Christian monarch but the threat of growing Viking settlements and raids is taking a toll. As Alfred grows older, oath-bound warrior Uhtred, Saxon born but Viking-raised, must decide if he is to follow his king's commands, likely irretrievably losing his long sought and fought for family lands or if he should go his own way, allowing Alfred's work to fall by the wayside. The sixth in the Saxon Tales series chronicling the reign of Alfred the Great. <i>-Julie Johnson, branch manager, Roland Park Branch</i>
