4.0 out of 5 stars
An excellent epic fantasy series., 23 Oct 2001
This novel is set in a fantasy world somewhat similar to medieval Europe. It vividly portrays the competing religious and political powers in the storylines of several participants from uncommon soldiers, monks, royalty, sailors and (here's the fantasy element)wizards. My only complaint is that the storyline of Hawkwood's voyage to find a new land is the least gripping.
