Brian Boru Emperor of the Irish by Morgan LlywelynIllustrated by Donald Teskey This internationally best-selling author, winner of many awards in adult historical fiction, now turns her hand to historical fiction for children with a personalised account of the life of Brian Boru, from his childhood in the midst of a large warrior family to his final role as High King of Ireland. 'A life full of battles, intrigues, alliances and betrayals, which make a stirring tale told in realistic detail'. The Irish Times
'Morgan Llewelyn has a tough and compelling style which makes this a really good read.'
'Rare indeed is it to find in such a book a clear sense of history, researched impeccably and written in a style which I can only describe as compulsively readable ... Fascinating details of life in Ireland 1000 years ago are interwoven in an ingenious way throughout the story.'
's Way Woman's Way 'One of the choices one makes in writing a book about history is that of deciding what to leave out. We all tend to fall in love with our research ... In Brian Boru I tried to tell children what they would like to know about the man and his time. If I have succeeded, when they are older some of them will investigate him further. They will not feel cut off from their past but will think of it as an exciting place and of Brian Boru as a real person.'
