Beric the Briton is a well researched captivating tale of a young warrior and the uprising of the warrior ueen Boudicca Historical accuracy Henty's usual masculine heroism and an slightly different spin on his romance make up the storylinePersonally I liked learning about the Britons and their mode of life Henty was not overly graphic but one does get the gist of their paganism and rather foolish ideas about overthrowing Rome My favorite scenes involved his life with the Romans and spoiler with the gladiators I gave this book four stars because I truly enjoyed it However Henty seemed to take a strange little rabbit trail near the end with Beric's uests into the British interior Yes Romans legions were lost there But however BritishRoman in history those scenes didn't seem to fit very well with the remainder of the storyOverall this was a very well written and researched book and I would highly recommend it to history buffs and all Henty fans

Beric the Briton A Story of the Roman InvasionBy being made librarian of the palace and the personal protector of Nero Finally he escapes from this irksome service organizes a band of outlaws in Calabria defies the power of Rome and at length returns to Britain where he becomes a wise ruler of his own people. This has been my favorite GA Henty book so far although to be fair we're really only just getting started in our reading of Henty's books uite an adventure with lots of developments twists and turns along the way I love the way that Henty introduces history so accurately and in such detail while also weaving a compelling fictional story into that context Although his lead characters tend to be impossibly idealistic I appreciate the strong example of virtue they present I also appreciate the Christian aspects of the history that are included in the stories Very nicely done
