The final battle awaits. England is under attack. Chaos reigns.
Master of the historical thriller, Bernard Cornwell, returns with the final instalment of his bestselling Last Kingdom series, also a major Netflix show. Seething with intrigue, divided loyalties and epic battles, War Lord sees an explosive end to Uhtred’s story as he faces his greatest ever battle – and prepares for his ultimate fate…
Bernard is the author of over 50 novels, loved universally for their blend of gripping action and meticulous attention to historical details. This event will see him live in conversation with historian, broadcaster and award-winning journalist Dan Jones, to discuss the epic conclusion of Bernard’s globally bestselling series. It is a tale of endless war and at the end of it, in the early years of the 10th Century, a new nation is born: England. It is a story that is curiously ignored, almost as if we assume that England was always there, but the making of England is a tale of vast and savage struggle, and at times that struggle looked hopeless.
Touching on Bernard’s extraordinarily diverse and varied literary career, and how he has worked to bring history to life, this is a unique opportunity to spend an evening with one of our greatest living novelists.
