The Empty Throne Summary


The Empty Throne (The Last Kingdom Series, Book 8) by Bernard Cornwell

The eighth novel in Bernard Cornwell's epic and bestselling series on the making of England and the fate of his great hero, Uhtred of Bebbanburg.

BBC2's major Autumn 2015 TV show THE LAST KINGDOM is based on the first two books in the series.

An empty throne leaves the kingdom exposed to rival West Saxons and to the Vikings, who are on a bloody rampage once more.

A hero is needed, a hero who has been in battle all his life, who can destroy the double threat to Mercia. A hero who will ultimately decide the fate of a nation...
