I read the first novel to learn about their backstory, but didn’t read the second and third books.

Waiting on Wednesday: Warriors of the Storm (The Warrior Chronicles) by Bernard Cornwell

Why I’m Waiting I read Bernard Cornwell’s The Warrior Chronicles this past spring thinking the series was concluded. I was wrong. Ever since I got sucked into the world of Uhtred of Bebbanburg, I have been dying to discover what happens next in the saga. Uhtred is such a remarkable character. Born of what will […]

Book Review: The Pagan Lord (The Warrior Chronicles) by Bernard Cornwell

“Five things make a man happy,” I told him, “a good ship, a good sword, a good hound, a good horse, and a woman.” “Not a good woman?” Finan asked, amused. “They’re all good,” I said, “except when they’re not, and then they’re better than good.”  ― Bernard Cornwell, The Pagan Lord  The Good…: I’ve enjoyed all […]

Book Review: Lords of the North (The Warrior Chronicles) by Bernard Cornwell

“Wyrd bið ful aræd”  ― Bernard Cornwell, Lords of the North The Good…: Author Bernard Cornwell continues to embed amazingly written battle scenes with narrative in the third entry to his Saxon Stories, Lords of the North. Like the last novel, this novel picks up right after (a month later) the events in The Pale Horseman. Uhtred has helped win Alfred’s […]

Book Review: The Pale Horseman (The Warrior Chronicles) by Bernard Cornwell

Book Review: The Pale Horseman (The Warrior Chronicles) by Bernard Cornwell

“We make children and wealth and amass land and build halls and assemble armies and give great feasts, but only one thing survives us. Reputation.”  ― Bernard Cornwell, The Pale Horseman The Good…:  While I enjoyed The Last Kingdom a lot, Bernard Cornwell’s sequel, The Pale Horseman, was even better. In The Last Kingdom Cornwell spends a lot of time (as he should) […]
