5.0 out of 5 stars Ripping Yarn!, 17 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sword of Albion: The Sword of Albion Trilogy Book 1 (Sword of Albion Trilogy 1) (Paperback)
Ever seen the Errol Flynn films? Did you like them? Then this book is for you! It's proper chivalry, spies, intrigue and adventure set in the Elizabethan era. Throw in a couple of galleons, a bit of a sea adventure, some rather naughty faery types and Indiana Jones type action and you have this!
Granted if you're a fan of the Age of Misrule, yes, it's going to be different. But it's easily as good as that series and has the plus side of having that dark, gothic feel to it. It would have made a great comic and an excellent film. It's been a real change to read something different from the usual and thank you Mr Chadbourne for giving us a hero who doesn't fall over and cry when the wind blows his hair! Will Swyfte is not a crispy shell of a man with a warm and melting inside, he's believable and flawed and kind of ruthless...
My only complaint is that personally I prefer a bit more blood and guts with my torture and would have loved to know just what happened in that Faerie house with those interesting implements of doom! But then I guess you can't have it all. Having said that I'm not on book two and book three is going straight to my Kindle. It is impossible to get enough of this chandelier swinging, sword fighting, fire dodging tale.
