Overview

Two years have passed since Alfred the Great successfully defeated Guthrum, King of the Vikings.

The fair land of England is at peace. That is, until the harmony is threatened by Guthrum's angry, vengeful, illegitimate son, Rigr, who is hell-bent on usurping his father's throne.

Rigr demands his Birthright - an acknowledgement that he is the sole heir to the Danelaw, but his father refuses his claim. Rigr assembles his army; a motley, but formidable, cohort of disenchanted warriors.

Fearsome Guthrum, ruler of everything from Kent to Northumbria, is made aware of the threat and conjures his forces, meeting the rebellious host on the field at Thetford.

Thousands upon thousands of bloodthirsty warriors confront each other on the sunlit, windless plains of East Anglia. The victors will rewrite the course of history, and the fate of England is in the hands of the gods of war.

The Briton and the Dane: Birthright is a beautiful story. Mary Ann Bernal writes with such passion and authority. She brings you back to a time none of us have lived through. This time piece brings the reader back in time but human emotion is the same as it is today. Love and passion will always bring heartache, misery and bliss. This suspenseful adventurous story captivated my senses and glued me to the pages. I loved the massive escape that was not my life. Such a thrill to go through all the trials and tribulations from this time period. Thought provoking and moving. This intense series caught my attention from the first book, The Briton and the Dane. The descriptions were so vivid I felt I was part of the surroundings. The scenes are set like a movie. The images are so clear making a perfect visual. These books would make great films. Would love to see the action, drama and adventure played out on the big screen. Very exciting! You can tell the author has spent a great deal of time researching everything that has to do with the time period. Very impressive. There are so many layers that kept falling away that made me more and more intrigued as the story unfolded. I was entertained all the way through and read until I could not read any longer. Highly recommend this series and everything else by Mary Ann Bernal. Her stories do not disappoint!
