Historical Fiction Death of Kings by Bernard Cornwell

Alfred the Great is dying (for real this time) and sides are being chosen who supports Alfred's son Edward and who supports his nephew AEthelwold, who is backed by the Danes. Uhtred chooses to serve Edward, but can he steer Edward along the right path and preserve the Saxon Kingdom or will the priest convince Edward that Uhtred the Pagan can not be trusted and doom Edward to defeat. In the end when all seems lost it is the cleverness and bravery of Edward's sister AEthelflaed who saves the day.
