Sword Song: The Battle for London

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Bernard Cornwell

Narrated By: Jonathan Keeble

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

Date: December 2014

Duration: 12 hours 14 minutes


In the exhilarating Saxon Tales series, Bernard Cornwell reimagines one of the most fascinating tales in all of history - the birth of England - and breathes life into the brilliant king who made it possible: Alfred the Great.
Alfred of Wessex has survived the Danush invasions, but though he now has an uneasy truce with his enemies, fresh Viking ships are arriving to plunder and enslave the Saxons. Those Vikings must be defeated, and Alfred's first move is to deny them their fortress on the Thames, the decayed Roman city of London. His weapon is Uhtred, a warrior of formidable reputation. But neither Alfred's wisdom, not Uhtred's prowess, might be enough to save Wessex when a Viking lord captures a prize of inestimable value.

    I loved the book and the narration is awesome!

  • Christina Skees

    Bernard Cornwell is an enchanting story teller and Jonathan Keeble is a spellbinding narrator. I wish Mr. Keeble narrated all of the books in the series - he is, by far, my favorite.

  • Zachary Carello

    I wish Jonathan Keeble narrated throughout the series, he truly fits whom I'd imagine for the role.

  • Susan Bennett

  • Mike Sibley

    I've been listening (and purchasing) every Bernard Cornwell books. While I enjoy the books immensely, I only recently realized that it was mostly Jonathan Keeble the reader, that I liked soo much. He is unbelievable. Jamie Glover is way too whimpy sounding for the character, and John Lee is as monitone as they come, plus he must be anxious to get the book read and get a paycheck as he seems to rush through it. Why would the publisher not wait for Jonathan Keeble and pay him what he wants? Although, it seems every book in the series gets shorter and shorter. This book and this reader are great.
