The new historical novel “Brightfire: A Tale of Sutton Hoo” (published by AuthorHouse), by P.M. Sabin Moore – the sequel to “Storm Frost” – is set between 608 – 630 AD, when Christianity is struggling to take hold on the eastern side of Britain. “Brightfire” covers important events during and after the reign of King Raedwald of Sutton Hoo.
“People often ask me if I am lonely living here under the great oak tree, but I just smile and say no. Very few people know the story of my life before I came here seven years ago, and those who do have the sense to say nothing to me. They are probably afraid to bring back old griefs, to stir up old troubles.”
The protagonist of “Brightfire”, Niartha, appeared in “Storm Frost” and remains a key character, as does her son, the goldsmith Ricberht. Reader who enjoyed “Storm Frost” will find the same enjoyment in “Brightfire,” but the sequel stands equally well on its own.
Eorpwald, King Raedwald’s son, is hostile to Christians, jealous of other successful young men – including Ricberht – and is a cruel bully. When Raedwald dies, no one can control Eorpwald.
Moore carries readers into chilling scenes of fighting and feasting, rescue, rape, cruelty, kindness, laughter and tears in this compelling historical novel.
