5.0 out of 5 stars Three classics in one volume, 27 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Best of Rosemary Sutcliff: "Warrior Scarlet", "Mark of the Horse Lord" and "Knight's Fee" (Hardcover)
Rosemary Sutcliff was an extraordinary writer of historical fiction, and here are three of her most acclaimed works. The first, Warrior Scarlet, is set in Bronze Age Britain. It tells the tale of Drem, a boy with a withered arm who dreams of slaying a wolf and thus earning his place amongst the warriors of the tribe. This story makes ideal reading for children. The second book, The Mark Of The Horse Lord, is a much darker tale of revenge and is suitable for older readers only. The third book (and my favourite) is Knight's Fee. Stunningly well written, it tells the story of a dog handler boy called Randal, who rises from his lowly position through a combination of fate and his own calibre and strength of character. It is an absorbing story of meritocracy in an age where a person's birth right was the dominating factor in what they could achieve in their life. All in all, this volume is superb value for an avid reader. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Grand Dame of Historical Fiction rides again!, 6 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Best of Rosemary Sutcliff: "Warrior Scarlet", "Mark of the Horse Lord" and "Knight's Fee" (Hardcover)
One of the greatest historical fiction writers ever, this compendium includes two of her classic tales of celtic Britain. Sutcliff writes compelling, sparse tales which take you into another mind-set and time.
