Review '... gripping and satisfying ...' ' ... enhanced with engrossing descriptions, such as the King's hall, the nature of shield wall battle, the stink and fascination of the city of Eoforwic.' 'All in all, The Amber Treasure is a strong and engaging tale told with skill and eloquence, and is satisfying and yet thought-provoking, by an able storyteller.' -- --http://allsheread.blogspot.com/2009/12/ambber-treasure-by-richard-denning.html
'Enjoyable novel set in sixth century Northumbria. Accurate detail and vivid fight scenes together with an engaging central character and his coming-of-age make this an absorbing read for fans of historical fiction...' -- --http://thebookbag.co.uk/reviews/index.php?title=The_Amber_Treasure_by_Richard_Denning
as with any exciting, well-written historical fiction, The Amber Treasure successfully repaints an era, and resurrects a culture, with vivid scenes and stunning characters. History books are much too factual for this reader, but historical fiction, such as Richard Denning s, can happily educate, as it sews a vivid tale, penned with the richness of time, place, people, customs and mission. -- --http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=107120265980605&topic=10
