Fairly new to the genre, I have read all Robyn Young (Brethren trio and Insurrection and some of B.Cornwell, Grail trio and Alfred. All action packed and enjoyed them very much. wanted to try some thing different but still in the histo genre. Didnt know what to expect, but thoroughly enjoyed it. Descriptions excellent and interesting characters and a great story. I would very much recommend it and am look forward to the other books. I have just read SJ Parris Prophecy
and am building up to CJ Samson Revelation (Shardlake)
which I have heard great things about.
