The Pagan Lord (The Warrior Chronicles, Book 7) by Bernard Cornwell
Bernard Cornwell has the ability to bring a man alive. Uhtred, his hero, is utterly believable and the depiction of his life style makes one believe that it is an accurate picture of the way of life in Saxon Britain. I have read the whole series and my one regret is that the next book must be the last, Uhtred back in Babbenborg must be the finish. Cornwell is a Master Craftsman and his construction of the life of Uhtred throughout the series is brilliant.

Shaving Adaptor/PLug UK Standard by selectric
5.0 out of 5 stars Good product, 26 Feb 2013
