Publisher's Summary

597 A.D. Treachery in Dark Ages Northumbria.

Cerdic is the nephew of a great warrior who died a hero of the Anglo-Saxon country of Deira. Growing up in a quiet village, he dreams of the glories of battle and of one day writing his name into the sagas. He experiences the true horrors of war, however, when his home is attacked, his sister kidnapped, his family betrayed and his uncle's legendary sword stolen.

Cerdic is thrown into the struggles that will determine the future of sixth century Britain and must show courageous leadership and overcome treachery, to save his kingdom, rescue his sister and return home with his uncle's sword.

Terrible Narration

I don't know how good the story is as the narration put me off and I couldn't listen more than 30 min.

597 AD England, The Haves and Have Nots

Historical fiction, once again of the haves and the have nots, and the excuses for the treatment of the peoples that they run rough shod over . . . interesting enough . . . but a little long in the tooth for me . . . the struggles between Welsh and Angles . . . not enough umph for me to continue the series . . .
