5.0 out of 5 stars A great book., 16 July 2014

This review is from: Weaponsmith (Kindle Edition)
Great idea for a story and it plays out well. Settings are believable even though some characters are fictitious. Good detail about conditions on the battlefields and the movement of armies. I loved both books.

4.0 out of 5 stars A reasonable read, 16 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good yarn and compelling reading. Set in the northern borders, it has twists and turns a plenty. Only thing wrong, as it is part of a series (4 at present) the 'hero' has a damaged hand, yet is still alive, and we hear nothing of his recovery and his return home, thus we are left guessing the completion.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Queens Man, 7 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Such a pity that this book, was written out of sequence. This should have been Book 1, not No.6. Had it have been sequenced correctly I would have given it 5 stars but having read all the others I can only manage 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars a most enjoyable tale, 21 Jun 2014

Have to say that Mike Crawshaw has a cracking sense of mystery and intrigue. He effectively combines imaginative scenarios with fictitious events based, loosely, on broad historical happenings. He adopts a racy text which is quite hard to put down. I cannot wait for Weaponsmith 3and 4 to make an appearance. Sooner the better.

The fictitious John Shakespeare is well interposed with actual events of the Elizabethan times. Well put together yarn that was very engrossing. Reading book 4 now.

What a book. Very hard to put down and totally consuming. My favourite period of English History given a twist of another kind with reasonable licence and artful writing. A cracking read, hope there are more.

5.0 out of 5 stars makes a pleasant change to read about SBS, 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite an informative book about the author's experiences of his time in the SBS. I would have liked a bit more detail though I fear that would have got him in deep sticky stuff?

3.0 out of 5 stars we'll researched but only covers a small sample of names, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite interesting in parts. I felt it skipped over a lot of detail which would have aided readers researching the subject. Not a bad read but not as good as anticipated.
