"Still breathless from his stirring Viking series, author and explorer, Tim Severin has moved back 200 years in time to unearth a fresh and fertile patch of history on which to summon up his readers blood ... As always. Severin excels in his palpable sense of history and adventure, rich period detail, thrilling battle sequences and fascinating, larger-than-life characters who strut their hour upon his epic stage ... a gripping start to what promised to be another all-action historical series." --Lancashire Evening Post
"Saxon is a very good page-turning read ... exciting and full of interesting historical detail." --The Bookbag blog
"A terrific read, and the first in a series: watch this space!"
--Good Book Guide
