Críticas:

Bernard Cornwell ranks as the current alpha male of testosterone-enriched historical fiction . As usual, Cornwell offers dramatic battle scenes with big swinging swords. There is also treachery, male bonding, plenty of historical nuggets and a skillful examination of the powerful role played by religion in the Dark Ages. Sword Song also has something new: a really terrific and moving love story . All in all, this satisfying tale leaves you hungry for more of Uhtred s adventures. --USA Today"

As expected, the warfare is ferociously bloody, the sacrilege pointedly barbed, and the story expertly paced. Heck, we d even extol Uhtred s budding spells of sober reflection about life and love -- if we weren t certain he d slice an ear off for saying so. --Entertainment Weekly"

Vastly entertaining and slyly wise.... Followers of this excellent series have stuck with Uhtred of Bebbanburg, the dispossessed pagan nobleman in thrall to the professionally Christian Wessexian monarch, through enough battles and perils for a dozen ordinary men.... Consistently fascinating. --Kirkus, starred"

The fourth installment of the acclaimed Saxon Tales series resonates with the same masculine vigor as the first three volumes. Cornwell s stylistic verve extends to main character Uhtred, a marvelously complex figure . In typical Conwellian fashion, the battle scenes are magnificent, but the author also deserves points for incorporating a healthy dose of romance and intrigue into the rousing plot. Even readers unfamiliar with the series will be able to catch on, but devoted fans will devour this volume while eagerly anticipating the next one. --Publishers Weekly"

Perhaps the greatest writer of historical adventure novels today. --Washington Post"

The direct heir to Patrick O Brian. --The Economist "

Cornwell tells Alfred s story with wit, intelligence and absolute narrative authority.... Like its predecessors, Sword Song offers a generous display of Cornwell s characteristic virtues: larger-than-life characters, direct, uncluttered prose and a precise evocation of the harsh realities of the distant past. As always, the battle scenes are particularly vivid, opening a window on the utter chaos of hand-to-hand combat among heavily armed bands of men. Cornwell remains in full control of this colorful, violent material, and his steadily deepening portrait of Alfred s nascent England continues to enthrall. --Kirkus, starred"

Reseña del editor:

A fourth installment in a saga of early England that includes Lords of the North finds Alfred of Wessex surviving the Danish invasion, only to find the Saxons targeted by Vikings, a conflict during which he harnesses the abilities of the formidable warrior Uhtred.
