The Last Kingdom

Second Season

First Season

I do hope they renew this series for another season.  With Netflix joining the team I hope they can increase the scale and scope of the show. While the first two seasons lacked some of the dark grimy conditions that I wished to see portrayed from Bernard Cornwell’s Saxon Stories, I’m still a junkie for medieval historical fiction dramas. It would be great if they filmed the whole series, but with ten plus books and counting that’s unlikely.

If you haven’t read this series yet you need to treat yourself to this enthralling tale of Saxons and the Norse invaders of England during Alfred the Greats reign.

These are the last two in the series, bring the total to ten books.  They aren’t long reads and if you are drawn to historical fiction that focuses on the warriors of old then you’ll really enjoy these tales.
