The Pale Horseman: A Novel

Unabridged / Go to Abridged Audiobook

Written By: Bernard Cornwell

Narrated By: Jonathan Keeble

Publisher: HarperAudio

Date: December 2014

Duration: 14 hours 7 minutes

Summary:

The second installment of Bernard Cornwell’s New York Times 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 television series.

As the last unvanquished piece of England, Wessex is eyed hungrily by the fearsome Viking conquerors. Uhtred, a dispossessed young nobleman, is tied to the imperiled land by birth and marriage but was raised by the Danish invaders—and he questions where his allegiance must lie. But blood is his destiny, and when the overwhelming Viking horde attacks out of a wintry darkness, Uhtred must put aside all hatred and distrust and stand beside his embattled country’s staunch defender—the fugitive King Alfred.

The Pale Horseman is a gripping, monumental adventure that gives breathtaking life to one of the most important epochs in English history—yet another masterwork from New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell.

    I am a big fan of the Saxon Chronicles and this narrator is my favorite. Nice job.

    This series is a 'reread' for me. I like the stories as much the second time around. Mr Cornwells' battle detail is great.My only issue is the historical tidbit at the end is missing. A side note, if you have seen the movie Henry and enjoyed watching it. I would highly recommend reading his book titled Agincourt.(Sp?) Just read it!

  • Pamela Brown

    So different from TV, love the books.

    This is number 2 in the series and I think that the book & the narrator is awesome... Looking forward to book 3.

    This was my second story on this to listen too and Jonathan keeble did a wonderful job at making this book come alive! At times I jumped up and screamed from the excitement of Bernard's writings and the mixture of Jonathan's narrative on this book! I love it!

    Second in the series and a quick listen. I felt that the narrator started slow but did better towards the end.
