The Burning Land

Before I started the Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest I read The Burning Land by Bernard Cornwell. True historical fiction about Britian at the time of Alfred the Great. The Danes and Saxons are constantly at war. Yet constantly seeking partnerships to leverage and grow their power.

This is the 5th in a series, but I didnt realize that at the time I grabbed it.  A quick read and interesting for those who truly like history.
