KIRKUS REVIEW

Boys and girls, too, who have loved and cherished the King Arthur stories will like this tale of England of the period following the supposed death of Alfred -- an England harried by Danes, open to penetration. Ranulph, thane of the King, encounters the King's ward, Morwenna, protects her and finds his master. Together they collect a loyal band, organize raids and guerilla warfare, and Alfred leads Guthru, the Danish leader, into a trap from which the English emerge victorious, while Ranulph save Morwenna from a traitors' stronghold, and joins Alfred in the rout of the Danes..... Picture of England's legendary king-hero in usual Farnol style.
