The Briton and the Dane Birthright by Mary Ann Bernal Mary Ann Bernal

It was a time before chivalry,before knighthood,before the birth of the great Bard.It was long after the Legions of glorious Rome left Britannia to the Barbarian hordes and Hadrian's Wall no longer divided the island that a great King sought to unite the Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms of England.
Travel back in time to Ninth Century Anglo-Saxon Britain and the reign of Alfred the Great who successfully repelled the Viking threat and drove the formidable Danish King Guthrum out of his Kingdom of Wessex.

Journey throughout Britannia where Lord Richard and his children risk their lives in the service of their King; where treachery and treason threaten the uneasy peace; where the outcome of one battle determines the course of history

I loved history when I was in school. My teach brought past worlds to life. This is what Mary Ann does. She brings a time that we see on TV and learn in school. It is a renaissance time with everything coming to life in a book. The sights, sounds, smells and battles that leave you breathless because you are in the scene. Great writing.

By Barby - See all my reviewsThis review is from: The Briton and the Dane: Birthright (Paperback)
I thought this book was very good indeed. Many different characters to get to know.

I was particularly impressed with the way the chariot races were explained, and felt as though I was actually there at times.

I look forward very much to the next book when the story continues.
