War is brewing in the Saxon village where Bron, a young Saxon slave, does his best to avoid his master's stick. But Bron is about to prove that honour and bravery are not only for those who are already free...
This is a really terrific book - bought with an eight year old in mind and it's a perfect choice. A great combination of: characters you really care about, loads of adventure and excitement plus plenty of warmth and humour. And the 'fact vs fiction' bit at the end such a good idea for any kid who wants to know more. Loved it.

I enjoyed this short tale set in England when the tribes of the Saxons and the Jutes were still very separate peoples. Bron, a young Jute is a slave who gains his freedom when he meets a remarkable Saxon warrior who helps him. This story is not too gory for young people but conveys the sense of menace present in those times. You can imagine these events taking place and the way the book is written keeps you turning the pages. To be recommended.
