Couldn’t put it down!

I loved this book and couldn’t put it down. It’s wonderfully written and narrated with fascinating historical details

Absorbing plot set in a brilliantly explained Medieval time.

I enjoy Anne Swinfen’s style evoking Medieval speech. I am getting used to Philip Battley’s restrained reading performance in this second book of the series. NH

Really boring

The first book was pretty fun to read and held my interest the whole way through. I was excited to read the next one, but unfortunately found it just dragged and dragged. I also thought much of the story was not believable for the time period. The narrator is excellent. Too bad the material is so overwrought.

Simply Lovely

A beautifully told tale with great historic accuracy that brings to life the lives of the characters with quiet certainty
