Storming Cornwell

Another excellent listen from Bernard Cornwell. I'd previously listened to the triology (The Last Kingdom, The Pale Horseman and The Lords of the North) and I'd recommend listening to those first so you've got the context for this one. If you like Cornwell's battle, bloody and bravery, you'll love this one. Great narration too.

I downloaded the wrong version initially so had to buy the unabridged version again but it was worth it. I'm sure if this narrator had started the series I would have carried on with this book but Jonathan Keeble who narrated the first 4 is a legend. I'll have to read the rest of the series on kindle now. Why do they change a perfectly good narrator part way through a series?
