Warriors of Ethandun
By N.M. Brown
This is a historical adventure fiction story. It’s set in Anglo-Saxon and Viking times. 21st century children travel back in time and find themselves in a seriously scary adventure!
This story involves magic, war and a bloodthirsty bear. I really enjoyed it but I thought it was too scary sometimes. The adventure was exciting.
The two 21st century children were my favourite characters. The author described them really well.
I think this book was a bit too old for me because there was so much fighting and the scary bear (don’t cuddle your teddy bear while you’re reading it!) But it was a good book and children aged 13+ will enjoy it.
(Hagelrat here. On reflection it possibly was a little old for MJ but I also read some of the book and whilst clearly judgement impaired when it comes to judging age suitability I also thought it was an entertaining fantasy adventure. A sort of updated Narnia. It's part of a series.)
