The Pale Horseman

Abridged / Go to Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Bernard Cornwell

Narrated By: Jamie Glover

Publisher: HarperAudio

Date: January 2006

Duration: 5 hours 34 minutes


The second 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.

This is the exciting—yet little known—story of the making of England in the 9th and 10th centuries, the years in which King Alfred the Great, his son and grandson defeated the Danish Vikings who had invaded and occupied three of England’s four kingdoms.

At the end of The Last Kingdom, The Danes had been defeated at Cynuit, but the triumph of the English is not fated to last long. The Danish Vikings quickly invade and occupy three of England’s four kingdoms—and all that remains of the once proud country is a small piece of marshland, where Alfred and his family live with a few soldiers and retainers, including Uhtred, the dispossessed English nobleman who was raised by the Danes. Uhtred has always been a Dane at heart, and has always believed that given the chance, he would fight for the men who raised him and taught him the Viking ways. But when Iseult, a powerful sorceress, enters Uhtred’s life, he is forced to consider feelings he’s never confronted before—and Uhtred discovers, in his moment of greatest peril, a new-found loyalty and love for his native country and ruler.

    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!

    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.
