As King Alfred aims to unite the warring Saxons and the Vikings, a romance takes place between Dragon Hakonson, a Viking, and Lady Rycca, a Saxon. Their love affair is not without trials because there are forces that would destroy the union. Josephine Bailey reads beautifully. Bringing the narrative to the foreground, she speaks clearly and capably expresses the changing emotions of the characters. Subtly de-emphasizing description, Bailey spotlights the author's focus on the romance of this historic tale. J.P. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
