About the book:
Uhtred, a boy from England, was born as a nobleman in Northumbria in XI century. When he became an orphan in his ten, he was captured by the Danes and then raised by them to become a Viking.
Nevertheless, Uthred's life is unbreakably connected to Alfred, the king of Wessex, ruler of the only English kingdom which had resisted the attacks of the Danes. The combat between the English and the Danes, and the discord between the Christians and the pagans make the background of Uthred's growing up.
