Cerdic is the nephew of a great warrior who died the hero of the 6th century Anglo-Saxon country of Deira. Growing up in a quiet village, he dreams of the glories of battle and of one day writing his name into the sagas. He experiences the true horrors of war, however, when his home is attacked, his sister kidnapped, his family betrayed and his uncle's legendary sword stolen. Cerdic is thrown into the struggles that will determine the future of 6th century Britain and must show courageous leadership and overcome treachery, to save his kingdom, rescue his sister and return home with his uncle's sword. The Amber Treasure is historical fiction set in the chaotic, bloody years of the late 6th century. This is the first novel in a series entitled "Northern Crown" which shows, through the eyes of Cerdic, the rise to greatness of the Kingdom of Northumbria. It is a journey that involves treachery, murder, great courage and epic battles.

Review:

'... gripping and satisfying ...' ' ... enhanced with engrossing descriptions, such as the King's hall, the nature of shield wall battle, the stink and fascination of the city of Eoforwic.' 'All in all, The Amber Treasure is a strong and engaging tale told with skill and eloquence, and is satisfying and yet thought-provoking, by an able storyteller.' --http://allsheread.blogspot.com/2009/12/ambber-treasure-by-richard-denning.html

'Enjoyable novel set in sixth century Northumbria. Accurate detail and vivid fight scenes together with an engaging central character and his coming-of-age make this an absorbing read for fans of historical fiction...' --http://thebookbag.co.uk/reviews/index.php?title=The_Amber_Treasure_by_Richard_Denning Download it as a PDF

as with any exciting, well-written historical fiction, The Amber Treasure successfully repaints an era, and resurrects a culture, with vivid scenes and stunning characters. History books are much too factual for this reader, but historical fiction, such as Richard Denning s, can happily educate, as it sews a vivid tale, penned with the richness of time, place, people, customs and mission. --http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=107120265980605&topic=10
