Review: “The Serpent Sword” by Matthew Harffy


The Serpent“The Serpent Sword” by Matthew Harffy is a great historical novel set in the Albion of the 7th Century A.D.
It is a period full of alliances, warfare, warriors, battles, death and rival kingdoms. I found it particularly rewarding to read because it covers a time that lay foundations for the racial, religious and human future of Britain. The book is informative, well researched and full of fascinating details, authentic (with artistic licences) and convincing in style and language.
Beobrand is a well chosen central character. Out for revenge in war-torn Northumbria he soon questions he soon changes course. The book is about great human qualities, such as honour, love and valour and enjoyable on many levels.
I’m not usually big on the dark ages but this has really captured my imagination and attention.
