✓ The Briton and the Dane Ì Download by ↠´ MaryAnn Bernal This is not a standalone book Being part of a series, it is impossible to understand the relationships between characters before 50% of the book Anyway, the real issue is the cinematic prose of the writer She moves like she was using a camera, very quickly, shifting restlessly from one scene to the other, one character to the other The reader is dazed and a bit sick and hope the chapter to end soon. Travel Back In Time To Th 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 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 about half the book to sort out which characters were related to whom and where and what each was heading towards The plot of this novel was interesting and origional and with a change to the structure and the style it is written itcould become amazing but unfortunatly this was not One thing in particular which got on my nerves wa 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 dug out the notes that I took during the reading of book one, but I needn t have worried it all came back to me I was excited as soon as read the prologue I can t really go into specifics because I feel that would be spoiling parts of both books if you hadn t read them, but I ll do my best. I think that Birthright is my favorite so far of the series I liked book one a lot, but I loved this one There are so many plot twists and so many things to figure out I do have to mention though that I thought I had something figured out and admittedly it was kind of far fetched and I 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. 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.
Will read again and look forward to reading. 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 It tells of how Christianity was becoming popular in Great Britain and how the other gods who were in the country were losing their power over the people 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 begin There is a lot of intrigue to the story There are kidnappings, murders of whole villages, and in the book. They use the monasteries that have been left by the Romans as places of refuge for the women and children who are losing their homes and lands or will be killed by the opposing army Some wo Treason is punishable by death, no matter the bloodline It has been two years since Alfred, King of Wessex, accepted the surrender of Guthrum, the leader of the Great Heathen Army Due to Alfred s terms, Guthrum has turned his back on his pagan ways and embraced the Christian God By doing so, he now rules the land from Kent to Northumbria It is enough No longer does he hunger for the desire for land and the blood of the battlefield. However, there are those who see Guthrum s surrender to the Christian faith as a weakness, and there is one among them which threatens the tranquil peace that Alfred and Guthrum have worked so hard to embrace. Rigr, Guthrum s illegitimate son, seeks the throne of his father However, because of his illegitimacy, Guthrum refuses to recognise him as his heir Driven by the desire
