continues to please

Sword Song, the fourth book of the Saxon Chronicles, continues its lusty and barbaric ways made so inviting and satisfying in the inimitable Bernard Cornwell style.

Only when the last chapter is performed (as it is *so convincingly* not only in this audiobook, but the others of the series, as well), does sadness set in when the listener realises that she or he has to wait impatiently for the next chapter in the Uhtred saga to be published.

One note: it is unfortunate that, at this writing, Audible only offers the abridged version of this book. Certainly some books benefit from an abridgement but readers and listeners of tales written and read so well as was this one, deserve the writer's intended version!

The story continues

And once again
An excellent book read by an excellent reader.

A sad solution to end the tale here!
I -for one- would have loved the read more about that time. And to know how our hero finaly got his beloved Bebbanburg.

And -I would have prefered this version to be the Unabridged version.
