"VM Whitworth's gripping tale combines convincing historical details with a well constructed plot, but its greatest asset is undoubtedly its central character. In Wulfgar, she has created an immensely appealing hero whose further adventures readers will anticipate with relish." (BBC History Magazine)
"Excellent - definitely for Sansom/Parris readers." (Bookseller)
"Once you're in, you will be hooked." (Weight Watchers Magazine)
"...an excellent debut whodunit with a Viking theme which is to be followed next year by The Traitors' Pit, to which I am already looking forward." (Mike Russell The Sunday Herald)

I would highly highly recommend this book to everyone - fans of historical fiction by writers such as Phillipa Gregory and C.J. Sansom will love the detail and historical accuracy (in fact, Whitworth easily surpasses other writers in maintaining a reliable historical atmosphere, no annoying modern idiomatic phrases here thank goodness) and those looking for adventure, depth and great writing will not be disappointed.
And now the hard bit - waiting for the next installment of Wulfgar's adventures. I for one hope there will be many many more to come.
I had a very enjoyable afternoon in York for the book launch where we were treated to a couple of readings by the author (you really should do the audiobook) and a talk on the difficulties of researching the period. When I finally got chance to sit down and read the book I was not disappointed.
Very well researched, the period is brought to life incredibly clearly. The attention to detail is fantastic, and each character stands out from the page, even the minor ones.
The Bone Thief comes highly recommended, and I can't wait for the next installment in Wulgar's adventures.
It's a great adventure story: once I started reading I could hardly put it down!
I'd recommend 'The Bone Thief' to everyone: it's cunningly wrought, meticulously researched and great fun.
