Lords of the North

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Bernard Cornwell

Narrated By: Tom Sellwood

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

Date: January 2007

Duration: 12 hours 58 minutes

Summary:

The third installment of Bernard Cornwell’s bestselling series chronicling the epic saga of the making of England, “like Game of Thrones, but real” (The Observer, London)—the basis for The Last Kingdom, the hit BBC America television series.
After achieving victory at King Alfred’s side, Uhtred of Bebbanburg is returning to his home in the North, finally free of his allegiance to the King—or so he believes. An encounter with a vicious slave trader introduces Uhtred to Guthred, the self-proclaimed King of Northumbria. Curious about Guthred’s astounding claim, Uhtred follows him north. But he soon discovers fate has another incredible surprise in store, and begins an unexpected journey that climaxes in the midnight siege of a city thought impregnable—a dangerous seige that results in the forging of England.
Lords of the North is Bernard Cornwell’s finest work yet—a breathtaking adventure, but it also tells the story of the creation of English identity, as the English and Danes begin to become one people, appropriating each other’s languages and, thrillingly, fighting side-by-side.

    Great book series and this book did not disappoint either!

  • Rhonda K

    Love the book, hate the narrator. Maybe hate is a little strong. Intensely dislike, mostly because he's not Jonathan Keeble. What were they thinking? Why mess with perfection?

  • Travis Curtiss

    Enjoyed the book but the narrator was not as good as the one used for The Last Kingdom and Pale Horseman.

  • Mike Sibley

    It was hard to know if I liked the book, as the narrator was so poor. I've been reading the entire series and am spoiled by Jonathan Keeble who has read most of the books in the series. It really throws you off when you are used to the voice of all the characters from other books, then the publisher picks a substitute reader who is so vastly different.
