More About This Book

Overview

When the treacherous O'Neill king allows Vikings to raid his home in Thomond, Brian Boru of the little known Dal Cais Clan, embarks on a life long journey to capture Ireland's high crown. But in a world where murder, sex and betrayal are commonly employed to gain political power, Brian realizes that those pretending to be his allies are working against him. With the help of Patric, the son of his closest friend, Brian wages bloody wars against the Vikings and the O'Neill Clan, inching closer to his crown. Only when he kidnaps the famed Kormlada, wife to two high kings including his nemesis, Malsakin O'Neill, does Brian realize that other worldly forces may be playing a role in his ascension. Both beautiful and mystical, Kormlada has a penchant for mischief as well as getting what she wants-and what she wants is power. With Kormlada's assistance, Brian captures his throne but his wife's over reaching ambition turns her attention toward another man-Patric's foster son, Njord the Black. The result is one of the bloodiest battles in Irish history.

    Irish History at It's Best

    As an avid history reader I find myself wondering why we haven't heard more about Brian Boru. From Remauro's point of view, it seems he changed the shape of Irish culture. It was a long book but done well enough that it was an easy read once you got all the characters straight. I have to admit that I enjoyed it quite well. It peaked my interest in ancient Irish culture and helped me to see the Vikings in a different light.

    A wonderful read. Compelling-Descriptive

    In the style of Phillpa Gregory, Remauro provides the reader with an up close look at ancient Irish culture. I never knew that life in the 10th century could be so fascinating. The fighting is fierce and the sex hot. A good read.
