I am reading the second book of a trilogy by Bernard Cornwell. I do love Cornwell's historical novels. His use of real historical events and people is so good. This book is called The Pale Horseman. This trilogy is about King Alfred of England. It takes place in the mid to late 800's and concerns the defense of England from the invasion of the Danes. The Pale Horseman culminated in the real life battle of Ethandun in central Wessex where 3500 Saxons (Alfred's army) defeated the Danish King Guthrum's 5000. Historians considered Alfred such a magnificent king that they gave him the title King Alfred the Great. I am anxious to read the third book on this subject called The Lords of the North.

Uther. The seventh in Jack Whyte's Chamolud Chronicles. I hear he is starting a new series on the Knight's Templar. I'll probably read those, too.
