    I am a huge fan of both Vikings and The Last Kingdom. The Last Kingdom does have a lot of true history in it, Cornwell does a great job researching and using as many facts as he can come up with in his books.

    I never saw it. I just remember buying the books for my friend's kid years before it became a show. She loved them though her religious grandmother was pissed at me hahaha

    Bernard Cornwell has some serious issues with the church. You can see it some in the shows, but in the books it really shines through. He was raised by an extreme christian sect that was eventually banned, but daily beatings were a requirement. Many of his books have that same anti-christian motiff and it is understandable after what he went through. Also, there is a lot of truth to it as well. The church had unequal power during that time in history and used every drop of it and often in bad ways.

    But I think he was talking about gossip girl books?

    Saw the trailer for the "His Dark Materials" series on HBO... looks good and actually faithful to the book trilogy. The first one, anyway.
