HASH(0xa19d5180) von 5 Sternen beautiful book, sheds light on a little-known era of history 20. Oktober 2001
Von SunnyInCali - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book by Joan Wolf is part of a trilogy on the making of Britain, starting with King Arthur and Morgan in The Road to Avalon, this one, Born of the Sun, and ending with Alfred the Great in The Edge of Light. Born of the Sun is about the clash between the Celts and the Saxons in the 6th century. Although it is less based on outside sources than the other two (just the the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle instead of legends or historical records), it is a powerful, moving novel about what might-have-been, and indeed probably was. The main characters, the Saxon Ceawlin of Wessex and his Celtic wife Niniane, have a beautiful love story, set against the turmoil of the times. Ceawlin did exist, and, as Wolf says in her afterword, was one of the few kings in the AS Chronicle upon which the Saxon title of Bretwalda, or "ruler of Britain" was bestowed. BUT, don't read this book for the history. Read it for the writing, as always superb - Joan Wolf is in top form. Do yourself a favor and buy this book today!

HASH(0xa19d8738) von 5 Sternen Simply wonderful! 23. Juni 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I loved this book! The characters were real and raw, the plot moved smoothly, and the elegance of the writing made the love story even more touching. I felt like I was transported into the story, and I never wanted to put the book down! I highly recommend this novel -- this is some of Wolf's best work. I cried more than once!

HASH(0xa19da588) von 5 Sternen Excellent story, with great insight into a little written about time. 26. März 2011
Von Topolino - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
It's 80 years after Arthur (this is a sort of sequel, at least chronologically, to Road to Avalon) and the Britons are disorganized and are constantly raided by the Saxons. The story involves a Celtic princess, Niniane, who is kidnapped by the king of the West Saxons after a raid on her village. She lives in the king's household for several years, becomes close to the king's favorite mistress, learns to fear the king's evil wife and is promised in marriage to the king's equally evil son. When there is a duel between the king's legitimate son (the evil one) and the king's bastard, Ceawlin and the evil son is killed (even though the story is a bit more complicated than that) Ceawlin is forced into exile. He takes Niniane with him intending to marry her, and eventually organized to take the kingdom back from the king's evil wife who is ruling as regent with her newborn.

This is a very well written story filled with complex characters. There is very little romance, despite the cover illustration but what you will get instead is a page turner of a saga, filled with intrigue, loyalty. A story that fills in the gaps in a little known time in British history. Wolf does a terrific job of describing what makes a leader, something she did well with Arthur and does equally well with the next book about Alfred the Great. She never makes her characters seem modern, yet she successfully explains their motivations. She's a great story teller, I will dig up more of her books.

HASH(0xa19da990) von 5 Sternen BORN OF THE SUN, A Brilliant, Breathtaking, Saxon Story! 19. Mai 2005
Von Kimberly Gelderman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is the compelling, never boring story of Ceawlin, illegitimate Prince of the King Cynric, of the West Saxons & Ceawlin's soon to be unlikely bride, Niniane, Princess of the Celts, a captive of his father's.

It begins in the middle of the 6th century, in Wessex, England. Ceawlin is challenged to a duel by his younger legitimate brother, Edwin, who is in league with his mother to kill the popular prince. Prince Ceawlin wins the duel but at a great cost and he and Niniane must flee to escape the wrath of Guthfrid, the bitter and jealous Queen.

The adventures of these two are the sweeping tales of well-loved and often told sagas (or should be). The plots and subplots abound and the desire to know what happens next to Ceawlin, Niniane and their friends and enemies is gripping. The differences between pagan and Christian are intricately described as are the differences in the Celts and the Saxons lifestyles.

I've read the first in this "loose" trilogy, "The Road To Avalon." This novel picks up 80 years after the death of King Arthur and continues with the story of Alfred the Great in "The Edge Of Light." In fact I've just started on "The Edge of Light" and it looks to be a genuine page turner as the first two. Read these books if you like historical fiction of The Dark Ages in England! You won't be disappointed!

HASH(0xa19daa5c) von 5 Sternen Excellent and moving! 12. Dezember 2001
Von Karen R. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I had previously read another Joan Wolf book - The Road to Avalon - and quite enjoyed it. Actually, quite enjoyed it is not saying enough. It was absolutely wonderful and I laughed and cried and cheered and cursed and lived along with it. That was an Arthurian book. This book takes place almost 100 years after Arthur's death when the Saxons and Britons really start mixing, peacefully and at war. Definitely an engaging book, one that I could barely put down.
