What people have said;
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I love delving into the history of that time and after reading many of Bernard Cornwell’s historical novels I have to say that this book is up there with his. I am looking forward to more of the same.
It was far removed from Alan’s previous books ‘The William Blake’ series which are contemporary thrillers.
Its hard to imagine the world at that time but Alan’s talent in painting the scene so graphically with words, brings you right into the middle of it. You almost expect the next arrow to come for you! I am impatient for the second volume to arrive. Hurry up Alan.
Extremely action packed.Gets harder to put this book down as the hero’s life with the Vikings unfolds.Written as it must have really been like in those days – hard and brutal. Looking forward to reading part 2 of the Warrior series.
- A page turner, full of action!
I found it a thrilling story, where the writer takes you back to some unsure times in history, full of the fear and cruelty of the attacks by the Danes into England. A page turner full of action. I await the moment when we ll see the new “Ben Hur” Ranulf in our cinemas.
