The Last Kingdom is a show of heroic deeds and epic battles but with a thematic depth that embraces politics, religion, warfare, courage, love, loyalty and our universal search for identity. Combining real historical figures and events with fictional characters, it is the story of how a people combined their strength under one of the most iconic kings of history in order to reclaim their land for themselves and build a place they call home.
The Danish invasion of Wessex sees Uhtred driven to hiding in the marshlands with King Alfred. With Wessex lost and the life of Alfred's child hanging in the balance, a bond is finally struck between the two men. They must work together if Wessex is to be reclaimed.
Leaving the marshes, a united Alfred and Uhtred must get word to Saxon forces to assemble and fight a decisive battle for Wessex and England. Treachery, deception and heartache follow as Wessex is saved — but at what cost to Uhtred?
Uhtred, the fearless and instinctive warrior, begins his voyage north to reclaim his fate - to avenge Earl Ragnar's death and recapture his ancestral lands.
When spies infiltrate the Cumbraland army, Uhtred must rely on his troops to protect him from a perilous attack.
Spurred on by the recent rogue ambush, Guthred makes a decision to march on Eoferwic. However, Abbot Eadred's disapproval of Uhtred grows to dangerous heights and his influence over the Dane King threatens the alliance between Guthred and Uhtred. Finding himself face to face with ruthless brothers Erik and Sigefrid, will Guthred's efforts to emulate Alfred's conciliatory tactics backfire?
Betrayed by Guthred and condemned to a life of slavery, Uhtred and Halig, along with fellow slave Finan, are forced to row endlessly on a trader ship.
Meanwhile, in order to gain their allegiance, Guthred welcomes Aelfric and the savage Dane brothers Erik and Sigefrid into Eoferwic,- a reward for dispatching Uhtred. But when a dispute in the terms threatens to jeopardise the agreement, Guthred offers Gisela as a peace offering. but will she comply?
Guthred's lack of judgement has divided Northumbria. Having sworn his allegiance to Alfred once again, Uhtred must travel North to defeat the brothers Erik and Sigefrid, take back Eoferwic and reassert Guthred's authority.
