I was sent to Hel and heard her dark cockerels crowing They announced my coming and the Corpse Ripper came for meThe Corpse Ripper all rotted flesh peeling from his yellow bones and his eyes like fire and his teeth like horns and his claws like gelding knives And there was a bone on the floor a thigh bone and I picked it up and I ripped it to a point with my own teeth and then I slew himI am the dead come to collect the living Uhtred of Bebbanburg is back with a vengeance Clothed in mail clad in steel and leather slapping down the cheek pieces of his wolf crested helm flexing gauntlets gripping his sword Serpent Breath When Uhtred is dressed in his war glory it is not hard to imagine that even the corpse ripper tremblesUhtred is a lord of war A pagan who fights for the Christianised Saxons of Wessex and Merciawho he hates against the pagan Danes who he likes So is the pleasure of the three Norns who sit at the root of the great tree and weave his life s threads according to their own amusement Wyrd bi ful r d Fate is inexorableIn times of war Uhtred is the Saxon s hero But in times of peace nobody wants a murdering priest killing nightmare inspiring demon from hell living in a land of abbots and bishops and churches To be fair the priest was an accident he only meant to knock him out how was he supposed to know the cross he ripped out of the abbot s hand had a pointy end on the bottomStill Uhtred soon gets himself in enough trouble to be declared outcast and kicked out of Merciabut Uhtred knows something in his gut The peace is ending I said They ll be crying for you to return Finan said They can kiss my pagan arse first But priests can t lead armies Have you ever fought in a battle I know you burned down my barns but that isn t a battle you stinking piece of rat gristle A battle is the shield wall It s smelling your enemy s breath while he tries to disembowel you with an axe it s blood and shit and screams and pain and terror It s trampling in your friends guts as enemies butcher them It s men clenching their teeth so hard they shatter them Have you ever been in a battle I listened to this on Audible and really enjoyed Matt Bates Audio narration I loved his varying accents between the Saxons and the Danes and he really brought the book to life Bernard Cornwell is still my favourite historical fiction writer and the Saxon Tales are still one of my favourite all time series even seven books in Cornwell researches his stuff well from armour to weaponry to battle tactics of the late ninth century Britain The battle scenes in these books are second to none and he really gets across the dirty business of war from the POV of a soldier You can literally feel the battle fever and the terror and smell the blood and sweat and shit churning in the mud where the shield walls clashI don t know how much further this series can go Uhtred never gets old for me but really he is getting on now and his dream of taking back his birthright Bebbanburg seems to be getting further and further away Will this be the book where he assaults the unassailable walls and takes back his inheritance from his uncle You ll have to read and find out For now all I can say is Wyrd bi ful r d Fate is inexorable5 stars
