Dreams that disappear too quickly
on 13 January 2016
The beginning story of a Saxon from England going to Gaul to Charlemagne's court and finding his feet, with this story's climax based on the Song of Roland. I'm afraid I was disappointed and I shan't be buying future stories in the series - I found the writing rather same-ish all through with not enough umph in the vital spots. It did give me a taste of the background events and situations but not enough to make me want to buy more, I'm afraid.
