Third book in Trilogy
About The Briton and The Dane: Legacy
It was a time before England's Golden Age; before Chaucer's poetic tales; before the revered Lionheart took the Crusader Cross; before the legend of Robin Hood. It was after the invading Germanic tribes settled the land and petty chieftains vied for supreme sovereignty that a great King sought to unify the British nation. Travel back in time to Dark Age Britannia and the turbulent reign of Alfred the Great who successfully prevented the Great Heathen Army from conquering his beloved Kingdom of Wessex. Journey throughout a war-ravaged country where Lord Richard and his offspring swear allegiance to a visionary King; where a cultural renaissance not seen since the rule of Charlemagne defies the savagery of barbarian raids; where a decisive sea battle establishes naval supremacy.
What readers are saying:
5 Star Review:
After reading this third book of the Briton and Dane series, I started rereading the first and second book. I did that in order to review all the action and the many characters that make up this informative history of the reign of Alfred the Great. Author Mary Ann Bernal brings out so much of the times and characters of the times it bears a second reading. Of the three books I liked this one best. (But of course by the time I got to this book I knew most of the characters well.) Good Read.
Another 5 Star Review:
I could not wait for this book to come out. The character flow is fantastic and the writing allows you to place yourself in their shoes asking what would I do. Again, a book that made it difficult to put down. Even if you are not into history the story line captures you and puts you there. Fantastic
About the author Mary Ann Bernal:
I fell in love with medieval England after I read Sir Walter Scott's Ivanhoe. Then came the great Hollywood epics such as Knights of the Round Table, Prince Valiant, The Black Shield of Falworth and The Vikings, to name but a few. Add to the mix Camelot and an incurable romantic Anglophile was born!
The Briton and the Dane novels are set in Ninth Century Anglo-Saxon Britain when the formidable Vikings terrorized the civilized world. The epic adventure runs the gamut of deception, treachery, intrigue, and complicated relationships during a time of war and conquest.
