Some time ago, I was contacted by a writer named James Bradley Clarke, who wanted me to do a book rewiev for him.
Here it is 🙂
The Bifrost Bridge is book one of the Viking Princess Sagas, written by James Bradley Clarke. This charming piece of work is Clarke’s first children’s book, and it certainly makes for an auspicious debut! The original princess story has sprung out from the love of his daughters and fairy tales that he used to tell them when they were little. The Bifrost Bridge is a mix of many elements such as Norse mythology and magical fairy tales, all nicely woven together in the medieval setting of Tønsberg, Norway.
This old fashioned tale of high adventure is about Princess Silya from Norway and Pricess Hedda from Denmark, two brave cousins who find themselves in the middle of a dispute between the god of trickery and the Asgardians. The girls are confronted by Trolls, Fire Giants, Loki and the Fenris wolf who are all out to destroy the kingdom for the sake of getting what they want. Can the princesses manage to restore the peace, or will chaos win?
Clarke’s book is different than any other children’s book out there in Midgard. It is a distinctive fantasy story about friendship and bravery that I am sure many children and their parents will enjoy. Mr Clarke’s fairy tale world is rich in details, which makes it an enjoyable read that is both heartfelt and exhilarating. My Viking thumbs up for this extraordinary book of magic, heroes and heroines. I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of the other Viking Princess Sagas.
