A rare surprise,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ALTDORF: The Forest Knights: Book 1 (Kindle Edition)
Great, rich and clever plot, great action, great characters. I have read a fair few historical fiction books and must say that these two "Forest Knights" have really impressed me. Couldn't put them down, which is not necessarily what one might be after, but it didn't hurt !
The style is slick and very accessible. I found that a great strength of these two novels is the harmonious balance between riveting, testosterone fueled action and meditative contemplation.
I was pleasantly surprised by the subject matter (the backdrop of fledgling Switzerland) and that is what got me interested in the first place. It was highly entertaining to read about the "big picture" circumstances of my country of origin.
