Poseidon's Spear (Killer of Men) by Christian Cameron

5.0 out of 5 stars A trip to Blighty, 20 Aug 2013
This book is as good as the other 2. I loved the see voyages and found it fascinating they got to the Isle of Wight. I can't wait for the next one.

I love historical fiction and this book along with most of the series is among the best there is. What I love the most about the whole series is the geography. I'm never likely to sail up the Dnieper river even in the 21st Century but to read about it being travelled along in the 2nd is wonderful. I also really liked reading about pre Viking Scandinavia in this tome.
Its a shame that its not in French as my friends would love to read it.
Its also a shame that some people are using this book review section to have a go at Amazon pricing in Kindle and not commenting on the book.
When is the next one Harry?

2.0 out of 5 stars I gave up, 9 April 2013
I have never written a review before as I thinks its too easy to criticise. I have also seen the author has replied to some.
I really wanted to like this book as it is about an area I know nothing about. However for the 1st time in a long time I gave up reading it as I felt that I was being taught a history lesson and a simple one at that. I want to get into the mind of a character I want to be there suffering what I don't want is staged managed sections where everything is explained to me ( I can look up stuff by myself). It probably didn't help that I had just read a Karen Maitland book and so was comparing.
