Format: Paperback
I was eagarly awaiting another book from the Author of Storm Frost and this talented author has not disappointed. Brightfire - A tale of Sutton Hoo - transports us back in time and brings to life this exciting period in history. This book is an easy read and offers plenty of period action and well researched dialogue that will make you want to read it in one sitting.

Format: Paperback
A well-paced sequel to Storm Frost, picking up Niartha's story and that of her bastard son Richbert, now learning the craft of a jewelsmith at Rendlesham, the home of King Raedwald.

With rich and vibrant imagery and a thorough grounding in the history and culture of Anglo-Saxon Britain, the author develops and enlivens a cast of believable characters living in times of change, as crowns pass from king to king, and early Christianity establishes itself upon a society whose beliefs are firmly rooted in the rituals and rites of the Gods of Asgard.

Thoroughly recommended!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Don't get me wrong, I liked this book. I had read the prequel and was looking forward to reading about the inevitible clashes between the Old Gods and the Christian one through the acts of priests, priestesses, wisewomen and monks and of course the main leading characters within the story. And for the most part it was a good tale in that sense. However, in my view the burning of one of the main protagonists was taking it a bit too far, especially as she was burnt as a witch. Witch burnings didn't start until the Late Middle Ages and the Renaissance periode, the sporadic one in the 12 and 13 hundreds excepted, so nearly 1000 years later. The author could still have found something to have her burnt (it was a trumped up case every way) but to use the sentence "thou shallst not suffer a witch to live" is a bit rich, and practically impossible in that time period. They could have just fired her house, something raiders would and could do in all time periods, or perhaps there would be other reasons to have someone burnt alive as a punishment. I'm sure something could have been found in the books concerned with living in Ango-Saxon times. But not for witchcraft in the sense as it is presented here. Despite that, I still enjoyed the book, although it was a bit sad, and the villain slightly card board in characterisation.
