warrior Harald Bloodhair. But the sweetness of Uhtred's victory is soured by
tragedy, forcing him to break with the Saxon king. Joining the Vikings, allied
with his old friend Ragnarand his old foe HaestenUhtred devises a strategy to
invade and conquer Wessex itself. But fate has very different plans.
