Cromwell has released 10 books in his Saxon Stories series, with an 11th due for release next year.
The Last Kingdom has so far adapted the first four books in the series, with a third season likely to cover books five and six: The Burning Land and Death of Kings.
At the start of The Burning Land, King Alfred of Wessex is in ill health while his heir is an untested youth.
After defeating a Viking attack, Uthred decides to break with Alfred and focus on reclaiming his ancestral home on the Northumbrian coast.
Allied with his old friend Ragnar and his old foe Haesten he aims to invade and conquer Wessex itself.
But Uthred finds himself town between his loyalties and is forced to make a monumentous choice – to realise his dream of a united and Christian England, or be responsible for condemning it to oblivion. www.express.co.uk
