I have now read all of the medieval books and am left on the cliff edge waiting for the next one to be released , I have always loved history , but never thought about the history of Wales until this series , and now can't wait for the continuation , I have given the book 5 stars , as when reading it I was totally captivated , and didn't want to put my kindle down , the detail described in the book keeps you mind working and living in the time , all I can say is hurry up Kevin , can't wait for the next in series , even the title has got me intreged .

I've read all of Kevin Ashman's Medieval books and thoroughly enjoyed them. As well as informative on al things Welsh history, they are also highly entertaining and full of action. A real page turner. I can't wait for No 4 in this series to see what happens next.

Another Ashman triumph. The brothers' paths are moving closer as the Welsh rise against Longshank's tyranny. I warn potential readers...there is a scene in this book when Madog addresses the two welsh armies with a speech to rival Shakespeare's '..once more into the breach..' . It will wring your heart and bring tears to your eyes....I wanted to wield a sword and stand with them ( and I am English!). That is the magic of Kevin Ashman....you don't just read his books....you live them!

I enjoyed this clever, detailed, and generally well-written adventure - as I'm sure Welsh Nationalists will (though they won't like the next volume). I had to remember the relationships and friendships from previous volumes, but it all came back in the end.
Mr Ashman has made a real effort to avoid the schoolboy howlers and more serious mistakes which marred previous volumes; I can't resist mentioning that he used both 'hoard' and 'horde' correctly - hooray! Spelling errors (such as reined for rained) were minimal, though I did wince at 'momentarily' wrongly used, and the American 'lays' instead of 'lies'. Personally, I consider that there are not nearly enough commas to break up long sentences, but that's just my 1960s education.
The one bugbear that annoyed me throughout was his continued over-use and misuse of the Royal honorific 'Sire' - he seems to be fixated on this word, applying it not only to Kings and Princes, but to people who don't deserve it, and would never have been addressed as such - PLEASE STOP IT! Despite this, it would be churlish to deduct a star, as I did enjoy this fast-paced and gripping story.

After reading Medieval I and II, I kept Medieval lll to read while on holiday in Egypt. My only disappointment was I'd finished it long before my holiday had finished. It didn't disappoint. it was an easy read a compelling read. Kevin painted an image in my minds eye of the surrounding landscape the characters their clothing their weapons. An interwoven mixture of stories. Love every word Thanks Kevin.

Very poor writing goes on and on with Welsh names that mean nothing to me very little action and the small amount in the story is very poorly written no feeling of tension or speed everything plods along . I gave up on it after wasting three days trying to read it and understand the workings of the main?theme no joy for me I will not read any further books by Mr Ashman.

Mr Ashman portrays Welsh life in a long ago era particularly well. He draws you into the characters such that you find yourself championing the underdog. He is a great storyteller as many Welsh were. He has not lost that ability so many of us have. I go from Medieval III straight to Medieval IV.

Absolutely brilliant , this book takes you into battle and transports the reader totally into bygone days of the old world . It slaps predictability in the face and sends it running . Can't recommend this series of books highly enough .

Really good. Finished rather abruptly. Hence my rating but anxious for next one. But continued in next book. Kindle books are usually well priced.
