Run, run, girl. In the name of God, run.
It's 1141 and freezing cold. Gwil, a battle-hardened mercenary, watches in horror as a little girl with red hair is dragged away by his own men. Caught in the middle of the fight for England she is just one more victim in a winter of atrocities.
But a strange twist of fate brings them together again. Gwil finds the girl close to death, clutching a sliver of parchment - and he knows what he must do. He will bring her back to life. He will train her to fight. And together, they will hunt down the man who did this to her.
But danger looms wherever they turn. As castle after castle falls victim to siege, the icy Fens ring with rumours of a madman, of murder - and of a small piece of parchment the cost of which none of them could have imagined....
Ariana Franklin's final, brilliant standalone novel, left incomplete at the time of her death, now finished by her daughter.

Worth the listen and well done Samantha Norman
Don't know, I haven't read the print version.
Any of Ariana Franklin's other books. It's an easy style.
Probably, but I prefer Diana Bishop. For this book I can see why a man's voice was preferred.
No I usually listen in 1 hour chunks and this suited this book fine.
A joy to read/hear Ariana Franklin again, a shame it won't be again, unless the Norman household have any other gems in partial completion. I will look forward to listening to it again in a few years time!

Beware ! Of the Monk..
Not up there with the very best , but enjoyable just the same
Absolutely brilliant !! His female voices are superbe ,no squeaky high pitched tones. He made a very good job of things.
The ending perhaps.
I have listened to all of Ariana Franklin's books which were magical for me, but somehow this one seemed different. I know Samantha had to finish the book and that had to be very difficult and sad even for her. She done her best . However it didn't have Ariana's final touch for me. Thank you Samantha Norman ..
