Excellent tale -as far as it goes!,
This review is from: Viking Warrior (The Strongbow Saga) (Kindle Edition)This is a really good tale - well researched, crafted and told. I read all three in the series, one straight after another; and therein lies it's main (only?) failing. As has been remarked elsewhere, this saga is not three books, rather one book with possibly three (or two) segments. I read it in Kindle form, so it's hard to judge accurately, but I'd reckon that if printed on paper in similar typeface and font size this would be well less than (say) Rutherford's seminal "Sarum" in size. A bit of a modern con, really, and one that is not uncommon these days - but a rather extreme example.
Still, I did enjoy the series for all that..... Roll on the next episodes, let's just hope they're a bit longer!

I quite agree. Good stuff, but all 3 in the series are 'novellas', and should be clearly marketed as such. Not such good value when you add up what you're paying for what, in effect, should perhaps have been one 'epic' novel.
