Warriors of the Storm – Bernard Cornwell

More battles with Saxon/Danish warlord, Uhtred, this time against Irish Viking, Ragnall whose brother Sigtryggr he (and we) met in Chester in The Empty Throne, and who eloped with Uhtred’s daughter Stiorra.

Stiorra is one of three strong women in the tale, alongside Queen Æthelflaed of Mercia and Uhtred’s former lover Brida.

And finally – FINALLY- it looks like Uhtred is in a position to return to reclaim Bebbanburg.
