  • Great characters, great read.

    It's always difficult to pick up a new author, especially when his debut novel is so lengthy. However, in this case I would strongly recommend it - especially to those who enjoy historical fiction or fantasy. "A Mighty Dawn" offers an insight into the culture and the geographical challenges that face the characters, allowing the reader to feel like someone who is actually there and watching the story unfold rather than someone reading about something that happened in the long distant past. The first few chapters require a small amount of commitment from the reader as you begin to understand the culture of the people and the commitment from the author, but after that the book will continue to engage you until the end. Tough to summarise the style - "A Thinking Man's Bernard Cornwell", "Lord of the Ring Cycle"? Try it - you won't be disappointed.

  • Addictive Viking Epic

    I got completely sucked in to this and can’t wait for the next one! It has set off something of a Viking obsession for me and I am veraciously watching every episode of the ‘Vikings’ TV series to try and satisfy my appetite in the meantime. Brun’s writing takes you on a twisting, turning and darkly surprising ride. I was really impressed at how well he realised the culture of the danish dark ages and immerses you in it with his characters, only to then plunge you deeper into mythical mystery and adventure. Bring on book two!

  • A pageturner

    "A mighty dawn", is a pageturner. The historical part, makes the fantasy part much more vivid. Not to forget the violence, as a part of the everyday living, in the 8th century Scandinavia. The deep sorrow that haunts the protagonist, is so well described, that one should think the authour had tied something similar. (Lets hope not). The same goes for the landscapes, in wich he travels. It made me find some old maps from Jutland and southern Sweeden, just to see the journey of Erlan. I have been reading fantasy books for more than 30 years now, and one can, almost, always guess the plot. More or less. But that is not the case with "A mighty dawn". I was taken by surprise, and that is, perhaps the main reason, that I simply can't wait to read the next book... and the one after that.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • One for the whole family

    Ridiculously good for a first effort. Brun borrows from so many contemporary writers to create his own unique style. If ever there was a face more suited to a book of this genre then this man possesses it - check his photo out on line! Twists and turns and surprises aplenty - not to mention a ridiculous desire to see the next book in the series!
