The ninth installment of Bernard Cornwell’s bestselling series chronicling the epic saga of the making of England, “like Game of Thrones, but real” (The Observer, London)—the basis for The Last Kingdom, the hit television series coming to Netflix in Fall 2016. A fragile peace reigns in Wessex, Mercia and East Anglia. King Alfred’s son Edward and formidable daughter, Aethelflaed, rule the kingdoms. But all around the restless Northmen, eyeing the rich lands and wealthy churches, are mounting raids. Uhtred of Bebbanburg, the kingdoms’ greatest warrior, controls northern Mercia from the strongly fortified city of Chester. But forces are gathering against him. Northmen allied to the Irish, led by the fierce warrior Ragnall Ivarson, are soon joined by the Northumbrians, and their strength could prove overwhelming. Despite the gathering threat, both Edward and Aethelflaed are reluctant to move out of the safety of their fortifications. But with Uhtred’s own daughter married to Ivarson’s brother, who can be trusted? In the struggle between family and loyalty, between personal ambition and political commitment, there will be no easy path. But a man with a warrior’s courage may be able to find it. Such a man is Uhtred, and this may be his finest hour.

At the end of the ninth century, King Alfred of Wessex is in ill health; his heir, an untested youth. His enemy, the Danes, having failed to conquer Wessex, now see their chance for victory. Led by the sword of savage warrior Harald Bloodhair, the Viking hordes attack. But Uhtred, Alfred’s reluctant warlord, proves his worth, outwitting Harald and handing the Vikings one of their greatest defeats. For Uhtred, the sweetness of victory is soon overshadowed by tragedy. Breaking with Alfred, he joins the Vikings, swearing never again to serve the Saxon king. Instead, he will reclaim his ancestral fortress on the Northumbrian coast. Allied with his old friend Ragnar-and his old foe Haesten-he aims to invade and conquer Wessex itself. But fate has different plans . . . In The Burning Land, Bernard Cornwell, “the reigning king of historical fiction” (USA Today), delivers a rousing saga of Anglo-Saxon England-an irresistible new chapter in his thrilling Saxon Tales, the epic story of the birth of England and the legendary king who made it possible.

In the spring of 2022, Roderick Cooley and his immortal companions brace for a new challenge to the world's restored peace. The chaos inspired by Krontos Lazarevic, along with the political upheaval in America and elsewhere, have all subsided. But an ancient menace that was widely believed to have died in 1912 has now reappeared with a vengeance.Zoa Promaji, a demonic horde of nearly six-hundred entities, had long been credited for some of the worst calamities to strike mankind during the past two-thousand years. Instigating disasters ranging from weather and seismic events to plagues responsible for the eventual deaths of millions of people mercifully came to an end when the demons guided an iceberg field into the path of the RMS Titanic. The horde in its entirety was believed to have perished in their attempt to murder their beleaguered sorcerer, Matija Badnjak, a passenger aboard the ill-fated ocean liner.But in recent years, the wicked entities that sank long ago with the mighty ship have been given new life by an unsuspecting treasure hunter. As a result, Zoa Promaji has reemerged in the modern world, thirsty for revenge after being imprisoned in the Atlantic's cold dark depths for more than a century. The demons seek to kill as many people as possible by combining storm systems, pulling magma to the earth's outer crust, and by invigorating diseases that had long been dormant. The effort to terrorize the Earth begins in America, using a forgotten blood coin that once belonged to Judas Iscariot and the natural gifts and experiences of David Fulmer--the treasure hunter turned sorcerer after Zoa Promaji took possession of the middle-aged widower's body and soul.Roderick and the gang soon discover that these adversaries are far more powerful than anything or anyone they've ever encountered. Engaging the entities and their latest sorcerer head-on comes with a personal price. But with the fate of the world's citizens hanging in the balance, there isn't any other choice than to risk their lives for the greater good.The outcome and more awaits discovery in Immortal Storm.... Acclaim for Aiden James: "Aiden James has written a deeply psychological, gripping tale that keeps the readers hooked from page one." Bookfinds review for "The Forgotten Eden""A variety of twists, surprises, and subplots keep the story moving forward at a good pace. My interest was piqued almost immediately and my attention never wavered as I forced my eyes to stay open well into the night. (Sleep is overrated.) Aiden James is a Master Storyteller, whose career is on the rise! Out-freaking-standing-excellent!" Detra Fitch of Huntress Reviews, for "Immortal Plague""Aiden James' writing style flows very easily and I found that Cades Cove snowballed into a very gripping tale. Clearly the strengths in the piece were as the spirit's interaction became prevalent with the family.... The Indian lore and ceremonies and the flashbacks to Allie Mae's (earthly) demise were very powerful. I think those aspects separated the work from what we've seen before in horror and ghost tales." Evelyn Klebert, Author of "A Ghost of a Chance", "Dragonflies", and "An Uneasy Traveler" for "Cades Cove""The intense writing style of Aiden James kept my eyes glued to the story and the pages seemed to fly by at warp speed.... Twists, turns, and surprises pop up at random times to keep the reader off balance. It all blends together to create one of the best stories I have read all year." Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews, for "The Devil's Paradise""Aiden James is insanely talented! We are watching a master at work....Ghost stories don't get any better than this."J.R. Rain, Author of "Moon Dance' and "Vampire Moon" for "The Raven Mocker"

The old enemy comes from Wessex where a dynastic struggle will determine who will be the next king. And the new foe is Sköll, a Norseman, whose ambition is to be King of Northumbria and who leads a frightening army of wolf-warriors, men who fight half-crazed in the belief that they are indeed wolves. Uhtred, believing he is cursed, must fend off one enemy while he tries to destroy the other. In this new chapter of the Saxon Tales series—a rousing adventure of courage, treachery, duty, devotion, majesty, love and battle, as seen through the eyes of a warrior straddling two worlds—Uhtred returns to fight once again for the destiny of England.

Bernard Cornwell, the "master of martial fiction" (Booklist), brings Thomas of Hookton from the popular Grail Quest series into a new adventure in 1356, a thrilling stand-alone novel. On September 19, 1356, a heavily outnumbered English army faced off against the French in the historic Battle of Poitiers. In 1356, Cornwell resurrects this dramatic and bloody struggle—one that would turn out to be the most decisive and improbable victory of the Hundred Years’ War, a clash where the underdog English not only the captured the strategic site of Poitiers, but the French King John II as well. In the vein of Cornwell’s bestselling Agincourt, 1356 is an action-packed story of danger and conquest, rich with military strategy and remarkable characters—both villainous and heroic—transporting readers to the front lines of war while painting a vivid picture of courage, treachery, and combat.
