The Briton and the Dane Second Edition Paperback – March 8, 2013
About the Author
Mary Ann Bernal, author of The Briton and the Dane novels, is an avid history buff whose area of interest focuses on Ninth Century Anglo-Saxon Britain during the Viking Age. While pursuing a degree in business administration, she managed to fit creative writing classes and workshops into her busy schedule to learn the craft, but it would take decades before her “Erik the Viking” novel was ultimately published. Mary Ann is also a passionate supporter of the United States military, having been involved with letter writing campaigns and other support programs since Operation Desert Storm. She has appeared on The Morning Blend television show hosted by KMTV, the CBS television affiliate in Omaha, and was interviewed by the Omaha World-Herald for her volunteer work. She has also been a featured author on Triangle Variety Radio, The Phil Naessens Show, and The Writers Showcase, and has been interviewed extensively by American and European bloggers. Mary Ann is a New York “expat,” and currently resides in Omaha, Nebraska.

The book is well written. The dialog between the characters is told using the vernacular of the period. This may take some getting used to, as it is more formal than our modern day English. Throughout each chapter, the scenes jump around to show what is happening in each of the character's lives. Initially, readers may find it challenging to keep all the characters straight and remember all of the relationships. By the middle of the book, things should be clear.
Readers should know that as the story closes, there are still unresolved issues - unfinished love stories, ongoing battles, and an important character who after being wounded, suffers from amnesia. (Does it sound like a soap opera?) Readers will have to buy Ms. Bernal's sequel, The Briton and the Dane Birthright, to see how everything resolves.
The Briton and the Dane is a book that would appeal to readers who enjoy historical fiction, especially fiction set in the Nineth Century Britannia.
There are two more courses in Ms Bernal's banquet, plus a companion tale for dessert. Excuse me while I activate my Kindle. I'm hungry.
