I agree with other reviewers that this was an interesting and gripping story, but my reading enjoyment was spoiled by the large number of mistakes - a fault with his previous novels too. Page layout is eccentric, with the first line of every paragraph indented, giving the pages an untidy look. There are too many spelling mistakes, including our old friend 'hoard' for 'horde', and - horror of horrors - 'true cross of Cavalry' instead of 'Calvary'. Punctuation varies: the apostrophes are in the right places - well done! - but there is a severe lack of commas. Capital letters appear randomly where there should not be one, and are missing where there should be.
Two major faults occur throughout the book: firstly, rendering Holy Land as 'holy-land' - why the hyphen? Secondly, and most obvious, the name of the famous Crusader fortress Krak des Chevaliers omits the final 's' - "des" is plural, so "Chevaliers" must be too.
Why are so many reviewers reluctant to mention these errors, which should not occur, even in a self-published book? Mr Ashman needs to get a proof-reader raised on British English; a good test would be knowing that a knight named Sir Abdul Khoury would be addressed as Sir Abdul, not Sir Khoury, and that knights were not called "Sire", a royal title (except in American films).

This book is a great disappointment. I found it difficult to deal with my irritation at the careless spelling and indifferent punctuation. There is no excuse for writing of instead of off.

Sadly the anachronisms were also glaring. This author needs a new editor.

A fascinating novel beginning in a village forge, culminating in the Holy Land, and returning back to the original village. You are taken with the young' hero' through all of his many adventures pretty seamlessly.
Lots of insights into many aspects of medievel life both in England and in . the Holy land are explored and talked about, but for me only briefly thus my 4 stars. Parts of this book weren't just too short, which is a great shame, as I really enjoyed it. I'd certainly recommend it, damned good read!

Enthralled, so hard to put down. You really don't have to be a history buff to read this book. It was so well researched and I learnt a lot of facts about the era without having to study, so bonus. The story sucks you in, your in there living the story, it was smashing. I wanted to get to the end for the outcome, however I didn't want it to finish either. I so hope we have a Medieval two in the pipeline.

I was very disappointed with this book. I am an avid reader of historical fiction and this book started well, though the set up was a little bit of a cliche. However it just seemed like the writer got bored and really wanted to reach the end as quickly as possible. I wouldn't recommend this book as it was far too simplistic, at one stage I went back to the Amazon precis to see if I had bought a childrens book by mistake. Bernard Cornwell doesn't have much to worry about.

I loved this book - couldn't put it down. I can forgive a few errors as the story captivated me and kept me engaged. It transported me to the time and place and I could imagine some of the horrors of the dungeons and injuries sustained in the battles. Really looking forward to more in the series by this author, I'm sure he has more adventures planned for Garyn.
