I was given a copy of The Briton and the Dane Brirthright through Goodreads First ReadsFirst impressions of the cover were that this book is going to be full of action and medieval references which are both appealingThe 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 was the repetition of certain phrases such as she loved her like a sister we share the same fate or he kissed her tenderly each phrase used with slight variation each time but still making the text very tedious and I found myself willing the book to endNot all was bad though the book includes maps of the British Isles and character lists which helped with understanding the story A glossary of terms was also included at the end as there was a few refernces to archaic language like Garderobe which means toilet Discussion uestions were also included a few of which I will answerDid the language help transport you back in timeYes though I wasn t transported into the whole story and didn t feel any emotional involvement with the charactersWere you engrossed in the storyTo put it simply noAre you anxious to read the third book in the trilogyNo but I would give it a try to see if it is any improvement on this book

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 battlefieldHowever there are those who see Guthrum s surrender to the Christian faith as a weakness and there is one among them which threatens the tranuil peace that Alfred and Guthrum have worked so hard to embraceRigr 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 for power Rigr plots to overthrow his father and to his delight he discovers that many would not only support his claim but fight alongside him His course is set He will win the Daneland from his father no matter what the costSet in a world of superstition blood feuds and revenge The Briton and the Dane Birthright The Briton and the Dane Book 2 by Mary Ann Bernal is the utterly captivating fictional story set in the time of King Alfred of Wessex and Guthrum of East AngliaI have already read several books in The Briton and the Dane series and I was very much looking forward to reading Birthright I had high expectations for this book and I am pleased to say that Bernal did not disappoint Bernal has presented a story that is not only rich in historical detailing but one with an almost tangible realismFrom the opening sentence I was hooked The short chapters and uickly changing scenes worked surprisingly well There is also a huge cast of characters which drove this book forward Putting all of these things together made this novel unputdownable In fact I was so engrossed in this story that I read it in one sittingThe period of history Bernal chose to base this book on is one where minimal primary sources have survived and although there are many works by Historical Fiction authors about Alfred the Great and his war with Guthrum the period straight after is one which is sorely neglected by authors and because of this Bernal s story is wonderfully originalThere are many characters in this book that a reader will love to hate Rigr being one of them His anger at his father is like an uncontrollable burning fire inside of him He is ambitious and it seems that nothing can thwart him in his uest to become KingThis book is not just about those who desire power Like with Book 1 I was particularly taken with the character of Elizabeth who despite being contradicted continuously is convinced that her husband who has been missing for two years is still very much alive I thoroughly enjoyed Elizabeth s storyFrom the onslaught this book is filled with non stop drama and cliff hanger tension Bernal writes with a vivid imagination and an energy that threatens to memorise She has a novelist eye for human frailty and her characters are authentic in the tellingTense powerful and utterly compulsive I thoroughly enjoyed the second book in this fabulous seriesI Highly RecommendReview by Mary Anne YardeThe Coffee Pot Book Club
