The Burning Land

In the latest Saxon Tales novel, King Alfred is nearing death and is concerned about  his legacy or at least that his chosen son will succeed him to the throne.  Alfred needs Uhtred as his sword to control Wessex and control of the Danes for his son.  Uhtred is not so enamored of that notion.  Alfred has generally not been generous to Uhtred and it’s time for Uhtred to return the favor, though as usual things don’t always go his way.  As his gods would tell him, the three spinners have their own say in his life’s direction.
