Book Description

31 July 2014 Hereward 4

1072 - The great battle has been lost. King William stands victorious. And for the betrayed and abandoned English rebels, the price of their crushing defeat is cruel: exile.

Cut adrift from family, friends, home, their hopes of survival lie with one man, their leader Hereward. But can even that now-legendary hero navigate a safe course across a world torn by war? Their ultimate destination is the jewelled heart of the Christian emperor in the East, the New Rome - Byzantium. Here the English hope to find gold and glory by joining those pledged to protect the emperor, the elite and savage Varangian Guard. But this once-mighty empire is slipping into shadow. Beyond the vast walls, the endless Turkish hordes plan for an attack that could come at any moment. And within the sprawling city, rival factions threaten bloody mayhem as they scheme to seize the crown.

Here begins a new chapter in the stirring tale of England's forgotten hero. But now the enemies are hidden, their methods bloodier, the battlefield and weapons unfamiliar and to stay alive in this cauldron of plot, betrayal and murder, Hereward and the English must fight as never before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent fourth in a row 2 Aug 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A fine addition to this excellent series. With this fourth volume we go into pure fiction, as no-one really knows what happened to Hereward after he was defeated by William the Conqueror, and the story rattles along at a great pace. The exiled Saxons meet fascinating new friends, and encounter old enemies. Plenty of exciting fighting, mixed with the complex factional politics of Constantinople, where bumping people off was the way to power and influence. I hope Mr Wilde's vivid imagination give us a new adventure each year.

By JPS TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
This is a very entertaining and fast-paced romp and adventure story which that builds on the little that is known of Hereward and imagines that he escaped to join the famous Varenguard – the bodyguards and elite warriors of the Emperors of Constantinople. It is an entirely fictitious story to the extent that no one knows what really happened to him or to whatever number of surviving warriors that fought William of Normandy at Ely and managed to escape.

Accordingly, you should not expect this book to be a “historical” novel, simply because the story is almost entirely made up. This does not stop it from being a very entertaining and exciting “page turner” that you are very likely to read from cover to cover without being able to drop it. For this to fully happen, however, you will need to fulfil a few conditions.

First of all, you will only fully appreciate this book and the story it tells if you simply neither mind nor care about historical accuracy, including Byzantine history. This is partly because the author has taken a number of liberties with the period (the action takes place in 1072), the events and its main protagonists. I will not even discuss the stereotype portraying of Mantzikert as a “great military disaster”, which it was not. Instead, I will tend to concentrate on the characters that are missing and those that are portrayed as stereotypes and, at times, I felt that some of them came out as rather implausible caricatures.

Michael VII, the “boy-emperor”, is just about the only historical “Eastern Roman” character, alongside Nikephoritzes, his powerful and much maligned finance minister.

4.0 out of 5 stars Abolutely loved it 1 Sep 2014
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
OK, so here Hereward is out on his own away from any other ancient tales surrounding him from books that have gone before and boy, what a cracking tale we have with the hero. As usual with James’ writing the reader is in for a tale of heroics, of daring and of course action that doesn’t let up as enemies from the past merge with new foes.

Back this up with prose that just leaps into the readers imagination gives the reader a tale that will be hard to miss and if you haven’t tried the series to date, where have you been, its cracking British Heroism at its best. Magic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fierce and furious and fab 1 Aug 2014
By disrep
Format:Kindle Edition
Hereward and his loyal men have left England's shores looking to seek their fortunes abroad but life is never easy.This is fast and furious rather like Hereward. The reader doesn't get much pause for breath, literally one disaster to another for Hereward and he's a long way from safe. The plots within plots within plots running through the book are great. New characters to love and loathe, one in particular Ariadne I hope to see more of in the next book.

You can't rely on anyone to be what they seem, except Hereward and his brothers in this book and I think it takes his story in a great direction. It could be read without having read the previous 3 books but the story is richer for knowing the history behind Hereward. The descriptions vibrant and colourful,the city full of the bustle you'd expect. I think this latest Hereward is better because there is always hope. The previous ones possibly because one knows it is doomed were bleaker and darker. This though bloody and grim and lots going badly always has the glimmer of hope throughout and that gives it a positivity.

All those who like the previous ones will be sure to like this. Not for the faint hearted though as it is fierce and bloody :)

Well done Mr Wilde and thank you another cracking read

I enjoyed this fourth in the series. I think it is rather more fanciful than e previous novels, but, if you have read and enjoyed them, I do not doubt you will enjoy this.
