5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent new Tale of Odysseus., 5 Feb. 2016
This is Glyn Illiffe’s fifth book in the Adventures of Odysseus series including King of Ithaca, The Gates of Troy, The Armour of Achilles, and Oracles of Troy, as I was already a fan of Glyn's Odysseus series I was given the chance to proof read this book, (I failed miserably) As with his other books, once started a very difficult book to put down,
Glyn has captured the ancient world of Greece and the Trojan War magnificently and turning to the Return Voyage of Odysseus with his 10 year epic battle against the Gods, Mutinous crew, and backstabbing family, Glyn has captured the essence of the Iliad to perfection he has brought the characters to life adding a few more and keeping the tale almost true to the original,
I think there is one or maybe two books still to come in this series and I am looking forward with great anticipation to the day of their release, Thanks Glyn for another great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant ending to a brilliant series., 6 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The 5th and final book in the excellent Legionary series, when I picked up the first in the series the cover was plain and uninteresting looking like a school "Penguin Classic" how wrong I was, I was hooked on a tale of the Eastern Roman Empire. Gordon Doherty puts his characters through the mill in this series, the pace just never slows. the culmination at the Battle of Adrianople and the treachery of the Gratian is well told, It is refreshing to read about another era of the Roman empire that hasn't been done to death by other authors.


The Forgotten Legion: (The Forgotten Legion Chronicles No. 1)
The Forgotten Legion: (The Forgotten Legion Chronicles No. 1)
by Ben Kane
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant start to a new trilogy by an author who has done meticulous research., 6 Jan. 2016
A great debut novel featuring four main characters surviving in a savage Roman world in the only way they know how. Truly graphic accounts of slavery, gladiatorial combat, full scale battles and prostitution. A very well written and a compelling read. The characters are very well developed and the plot keeps moving at a nice pace. I looked forward to reading the sequels and all other books by Ben Kane, an author who clearly has a great talent for storytelling.
If you enjoy books within this genre, you will not be disappointed. I don't want to spoil the plot by going into it in detail, but if you enjoy gladiators, treacherous politics, war, battles for survival and much more - then buy this book.

Works great for leaves and other light weight material, having a problem with the stitching coming undone for £7.99 if it lasts the season should be a good buy.

Friar Tuck and the Christmas Devil (Kindle Single)
Price: £0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Cracking little novella., 7 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Steven McKay has produced a lovely tale of the Christmas spirit told from a medieval perspective, Written as an aside from his series "Wolf Head" with Friar Tuck leading the investigation into strange happenings in a small village, it opens ones eyes to the superstitions of the medieval mind, a good fast paced tale that keeps the reader interested until the end. for 99p a story to fill an hour or so maybe commuting, well worth a try.

This is another great little book from the author of "Gadir" it carries the reader along at a cracking pace with much blood & snot, it turns into a neat little thriller/mystery and looks good for a follow-up.
