The Dragon and the Raven refers to Alfred's Golden Dragon standard, and the standard of the Danish kings, which was a raven. The story opens in the year 870 in the marshes of East Anglia, where an Anglian ealdorman, his kinsman Eldred, and his son Edmund have been driven in an attempt to hide from the Danes. The Danish advance is resisted one last time by an East Anglian army led in part by Edmund's father, but the resistance is crushed and Eldred and Edmund fly south, to Wessex. But even Wessex, the last Saxon kingdom, won't defy the Danes forever...Ever mindful of his homeland's fall, young Edmund determines to fight his hardest against the brutal, bloodthirsty Danish invaders. From the marshes of Athelney, to the heart of Danish territory, to the siege of Paris and even the invasion of Sicily, Edmund and his good ship the Dragon fearlessly sail in search of adventure. Throw in a pretty Danish girl, her honourable (if piratical) father, and her wicked suitor, and you have everything else you need for a gripping yarn.The subtitle of this book is Or, the Days of King Alfred. Strictly speaking, it's an accurate title: the book is less about King Alfred than about the time in which he lived, the wholesale onslaught of the Danes against the entire civilised world, from England to France to the Mediterranean. Unusually for a Henty book, most of the memorable bits of the story are not based on history at all; though if you're paying attention you will hear all about the battle of Ashdown, the battle of Ethandune, and the great invasion of 893.

This is an historical novel about the Vikings taking over England and how the Saxons fought and lost until King Alfred unites them.G A Henty was a Victorian with a passion for history. He has written many books which I understand from other sources are very well researched and provide a good understanding of each portion of history. The writing is old-fashioned but is all the more enriched because of this. It is not a simplistic read but is very accessible. I am reading this aloud to my 9 year old who is fascinated and engrossed in the story which thunders along with a good pace and keeps the interest. Most of his books have a main character of a young boy which also allows an easier 'hook' into the story for both adults and children. Whilst this one is about battles and warfare it does not dwell unduly on gore or terror.
