fascinating, different and most of all a brilliant read,
By A Customer
This review is from: Ash: A Secret History (Paperback)
This book charts the life story of a mediaeval mercenary captain with a difference - she's female!
Gelling together one believable alternative history is difficult enough but to do so whilst also charting the uphevals of writing and publishing the history is a feat that deserves the 5 stars I give this book.
It's a struggle to say which has gripped me the most - the story of Ash, our mercenary captain, and her company of misfits, or the story of Pierre Radcliffe, the historian who is trying to bring Ash's story to the modern world.
Prepare to be amazed and challenged by a demanding, interesting and above all thoroughly well written book.
I love it and so will you!
