Synopsis The Last Kingdom Series 2
The Last Kingdom Series 2 story-line covers the plots of the third and fourth of Cornwell’s novels, The Lords of the North and Sword Song.
In 878 Uhtred, the fearless and instinctive warrior, beginning his voyage north to reclaim his ancestral lands of Bebbanburg. Alfred’s conviction to unite the kingdoms of England is stronger than ever, and he sets his sights on the wild lands of the north, which have fallen under the control of the Danish warlords Erik and Sigefrid.
Beocca recruits Uhtred and his companions to rescue Guthred, the king of Cumberland, from his Danish captors. Guthred is both Dane and Christian and the hope is that he will unite northern England against the pagan invaders.
Guthred is held for ransom by Sven, and Uhtred pretends to be an undead warrior, sent by Odin to avenge the death of Ragnar the Elder. The ploy works and the Danes are scattered.
At his keep in Dunholm, Kjartan hears word of Uhtred’s presence in Northumbria and plots revenge.
