The Briton and the Dane: Birthright is a beautiful story. Mary Ann Bernal writes with such passion and authority. She brings you back to a time none of us have lived through. This time piece brings the reader back in time but human emotion is the same as it is today. Love and passion will always bring heartache, misery and bliss.

This suspenseful adventurous story captivated my senses and glued me to the pages. I loved the massive escape that was not my life. Such a thrill to go through all the t...more

Recommends it for: anyone who loves books
This book was very interesting. It took historical events and people and made a fiction story about them. This was about King Alfred and King Guthrum in the Ninth Century.

King Guthrum has to fight his illegitimate child for his throne and the book is about the conspiracies that are going on in the illegitimate son’s camp before the ballets be...more

Where to start? I loved the first book Briton and the Dane but there was so much unresolved that I was eager to read the next book, yet having waited several weeks between finishing book one and starting book two I was a bit apprehensive that I would be lost.

I can’t really go into specifics because I feel that would be spoiling parts of...more
I loved it. I hope there is another coming up. After I read it, I took a deep breath to make sure I was in this world not in the time portrayed in the book. Everything came to life. Wonderful writing.
I was given a copy of The Briton and the Dane: Brirthright through Goodreads First Reads.First impressions of the cover were that this book is going to be full of action and medieval references which are both appealing.
The format that this book is written in is small chapters which are each split into sections which deflect to different scenes and characters with each small section generally being about two or three pages long. This structure led me to never get involved in the book. It took me...more

After reading The Briton and the Dane I bought Mary Ann Bernal's second of the series, Birthright. I quickly caught up with the story. With so many characters it took my serious attention while reading .. And I do so love a book that keeps my attention. Thanks for this. Fascinating cover too.
