    Set in England when Vikings are on the brink of invasion, this is an epic tale of seduction, war, and unrequited love from an outstanding new voice in historical fiction. In 1002 AD Emma, a young Norman girl, must take her place as bride to England's King Æthelred, a ruler who is looking for nothing more than a political pawn to protect his shores and bear his next child.

    enjoyable historical fiction

    good narration good story enjoyed this book and will be reading the next in the series

    The second book in Bracewell's outstanding Emma of Normandy series, set in 11th-century England, when Vikings are on the brink of invasion. AD 1006. Queen Emma, the Norman bride of England's King Æthelred, has given birth to a son. Now her place as second wife to the king is safe and Edward marked as heir to the throne. But the royal bed is a cold place and the court a setting for betrayal and violence, as the ageing king struggles to retain his power over the realm.

    another enjoyable story

    not as good as the first episode but still a good read and I am looking forward to the next book in the series
