Plot: Uhtred was born a Saxon, but raised a Dane after his father was killed in battle and he was taken into slavery. Adopted by the family, Uhtred grew up to be brothers with his master’s son. When the family is killed and Uhtred blamed, he must discover where his loyalties lie.
If he is to reclaim his homeland – his true homeland – he must convince Alfred of his worth. But the King of Wessex is not so easily swayed and the approaching Danish army means Uhtred is tested time and time again. Can he gain his title and land back?
