Having read the Viking books by Tim Severin, it was no surprise to find the Saxon first book to be written with the same excitement that draws the reader into the story. I will now start reading the next book in the Saxon series.
Historical fiction at its finest. I couldn't put this book down, its is written so well that the next intrigue you assume is on the next page, so you just keep going. I can't wait for the next installment.
I very much like Tim Severin and his style of writing, but I must admit that this 1st book in the Saxon series was quite hard to get into. It was very slow to get going and I am afraid to say finished the same way.
I hadn't ever heard of this author but the book was chosen for our book club, unfortunately. I feel that the book has been written for young teenagers certainly not adults. I found it very disappointing. JJ
Having read Tim Serverin,s Viking series I was interested to see if this next series would compare favourably with it. l was not disappointed l could not stop turning the pages Excellent historic read.
