by | Read by Tom Sellwood

Historical Fiction • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Travel back to ninth-century Britain during the reign of Alfred the Great and pick up the thread of this trilogy about an English orphan raised as a warrior by the conquering Danes. Tom Sellwood's magical voice brings to life the excitement and terror of those tumultuous times. All fans of the exploits of Cornwell's Richard Sharpe, who fights in the Napoleonic Wars, should love this series. Sellwood carries the many male roles exceeding well, so he can be forgiven for some difficulty with the female characters. His Danish accent works particularly well among his numerous British accents. Lovers of medieval British history will also appreciate Sellwood's effortless rendering of the difficult people and place names of the time.
