I felt too as I read that Martin Lake's use of landscape as it would have been in the 11th C was terrific. I felt I was there on the Roman roads, in the destroyed villages, walking with Edgar and his companions through the ruined streets of early medieval York. This novel is an accomplishment beautifully and accurately told. I found it unputdownable and now I shall have to read its forerunner, Resistance.
The tale fairly gallops along; there are certainly no boring passages in the book. Lake has clearly done
a lot of research in putting the history together; how many of the characters are factual and how many
are added from his imagination I do not know but all come to life very real and believeable. Lake's
masterful use of dialogue contributes much to this believability, how the persons speak and what they say
fit exactly the image their actions suggest. As with the first volume, this one ends leaving the reader in
suspense. The story of Edgar's curious relationship with the Norman William is not finished. Will another
volume be forthcoming? I'm sure it would be welcomed.
