Thrilling debut Novel!,
This review is from: The Half-Slave (Paperback)
This is a tremendous read. Politics and intrigue, love and death, all set in fifth century Europe. Trevor Bloom paints a vivid picture of the confusion and violence of the last days of the Roman Empire in this enthralling thriller.
The warring Northern tribes are massing to move into the vacuum left by the disintegrating Roman Empire. Ascha, the son of a Saxon warlord and a British slave mother, is forced to spy on both Saxon and Frankish leaders in pursuit of his own freedom.
I've never been particularly drawn to historical fiction, but devoured this story with excitement. Recommended!
