This review is from: Five Dances with Death: Dance One (Kindle Edition)What an absolutely amazing book this is.
I started reading it almost exactly twenty four hours ago and have literally done nothing else since.
You don't believe me?
Well I dimly noticed the sun rise over the hills this morning and wondered when it had set, because the last memory I had was switching my kindle on yesterday and starting to read.
Austin Briggs is a man of immense talent, skill and knowledge. Through this book he has brought to life a people and a time long since lost to our world.
There is no skimming or flowering of facts. Austin tells the history just as it was, at times harsh and brutal, gory and stomach turning, magical and fantastical, heart breaking and beautiful. This story has it all!
This book is not a history lesson; it is not pure fantasy either.
Austin Briggs has found the perfect balance in historical fiction and I passionately recommend this book to EVERYONE!
