    Truly, the best book I have ever read I keep going back to it over and over again and Brian Boru has become a hero of mine In a time when Vikings were invading Ireland, tribes were warring and life was hard, it was highly improbable that a 12th born son would ever become King of Ireland And yet Brian did the impossible united the whole of Ireland for the only time
