1635: The Papal Stakes (Ring of Fire Book 11)
1635: The Papal Stakes (Ring of Fire Book 11)
Price: £4.62

3.0 out of 5 stars LOVE THIS SERIES, 24 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not the best of the series and the lack of Eric Flint's name on the cover is probably why. Avoid anything by this writer.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The whole Leary series are really good adventure stories and this is no exception. Start at the beginning with "WITH THE LIGHTNINGS"

1.0 out of 5 stars Forget it!, 24 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Couldn't get past the first few chapters. A truly weird and unsatisfying book. Go somewhere else for something to read.


An Honorable Defense (Crisis of empire)
An Honorable Defense (Crisis of empire)
by David Drake
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Readable, 24 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just about readable. Not up to Drake's normal standards but then it's a very early effort. Try it if you're really short of thengs to read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hornblower, 24 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A truly inferior update of the excellent Horatio Hornblower books by CS Forrester. A waste of money at any price.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hero for all seasons, 16 May 2003
Devlin is a man, a hero, disgraced in his own country who travels to the capital of his nation's conquerors. Arriving cold, hungry, threadbear, and disillusioned he takes a test, which if he fails will kill him, to become the champion who will right the ills of the empire.
He passes the test and receives a monetary reward which he promptly despatches to his own country to pay certain, self imposed debts. Having done all he has set out to do he begins to seek out his fate, expecting to die very soon.
What follows is a series of adventures which should satisfy the most demanding fan of "sword and sorery" fiction. Note that this is more sword than sorcery which, in my opinion, makes it a far better book.
I knew nothing of Patricia Bray until I stumbled on this title on Amazon. I'm now waiting impatiently for the next instalment due out soon.
Until now Ms Bray has been known for her Romantic fiction. I'm not a huge fan of the torn bodice style of writing but I'm prepared to make an exception for this lady.


The Deepest Sea
The Deepest Sea

5.0 out of 5 stars An Irish Dane, 12 Aug 2001
This is one of the most enjoyable books I've read in many years. It chronicles the adventures of a young Irish Dane born in Dublin in the early years of Scandinavian expansion into Western Europe.
The hero experiences many adventures and misadventures during a journey around the British Isles by land and sea. Through most of the novel he is accompanied by one of the most unusual and engaging heroines you are likely to meet in fiction.
All of the characters are well drawn, and we meet good and bad Irishmen, Danes, Brits, Geats etc. etc. and the comical but dastardly "White Danes".
This is an outstanding historical novel with a little magic and fantasy thrown in to get it classified as Science Fantasy.
If you guess the final resolution of the relationship between the hero and heroine I will be surprised and you will be very pleased with yourself.
Read and enjoy.
