About this title


In this sequel to 'Storm Frost' Niartha remains a key character and so does her son, Ricberht, now a goldsmith, though 'Brightfire' can stand alone. The story is set in the period 608-630 AD, when Christianity is struggling to take hold on the eastern side of Britain 'Brightfire' covers important events during and after the reign of King Raedwald of Sutton Hoo, and is set mainly in and around his homestead nearby, with some scenes in Northumbria and elsewhere. Eorpwald, Raedwald's son, is hostile to Christians, jealous of other, successful young men (including Ricberht) and is a cruel bully in spite of all his father's efforts to master him during his lifetime. When Raedwald dies, no-one can control Eorpwald. Even his own people are in danger. We see fighting and feasting, rescue and rape, cruelty and kindness in a story that rises to a strong climax.
