No Quarter Asked No Quarter Given by Stephen Taylor
No Quarter Asked, No Quarter Given became my holiday reading this year. As a fantasy writer myself, I tend to read books from the fantasy genre so this historical novel is way outside my normal read. Happily I was not disappointed and was rewarded for diversifying.
The story follows the adventures of a likeable rogue, John Campbell-John and his friend, a Jewish pugilist (boxer) called Samuel Medina as their fortunes rise and fall.

Drawing on factual elements and embellishing them superbly, Taylor has created a… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced adventure, 4 April 2011
This is another a fast moving, thought provoking novel from the pen of Margaret Gill.
Building on the plotline of Narwhal we follow Gray in exotic climes as he investigates his mystical links with a magical skull.
As with her previous books, Margaret has created a book that is entertaining and a pleasure to read. Both young adults, and those of a more mature vintage, will find themselves being drawn into the story.
Having read Narwhal I was eagerly looking forward to this work being released. I was not disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Enthralling Tale, 26 Feb 2007
I have now read a few thngs from Margaret Gill and I must admit that I love her easy flowing writing style.

This current tale, the third in the trilogy, moves along nicely and, at times, the world that Gill creates is almost 'Pullmanesque' in feel.

I also enjoyed the fact that this not the usual run of the mill fantasy genre story and brought together elements of fantasy, science fiction and the supernatural and blended them in a futuristic adventure drawing on Asian culture and mythology for its core story.

An excellent novel and I look forward to reading future work from the author.
