Mary Ann Bernal

Author Mary Ann Bernalabout this book: In the final book of the series, The Briton and the Dane: Legacy, betrayal and treachery intensifies, and King Alfred faces a new Danish threat, but he decides to fight the Norsemen at sea, knowing Erik must fight his brother, Sven. Add excessive storm tides and fire ships hurled about by excessive winds, and suddenly both sides find themselves fighting for survival.

Another theme in the series is religion. One of the terms of the peace treaty, after King Alfred defeated the Danish King Guthrum, was that the pagan Norseman was to be baptized into the Christian faith. When King Guthrum returned to his lands in East Anglia, his subjects were forced to accept Christianity, upon pain of death. I was curious as to how these people felt about being forced to deny the gods of their ancestors. Horrific stories of torture and death are very persuasive, just as they are today. The point being, would you give your life for your religious beliefs? Just how strong is your faith? Not an easy question. And, what of the guilt, if you choose to deny God?

 The best escape

Brenda Perlin

a review by Brenda Perlin

Birthright left me wanting more while Legacy satisfied my curiosity by answering those burning questions that still lingered.

The Briton and the Dane - Legacy by author Mary Ann Bernal was a total escape. I adored going back in time and feeling as I was there too. I was so pleased to be re-united with these characters who I had come to love.

I was enthralled and emotionally involved in the outcome. This was the best escape I could have taken.
