Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 9 January 2012
I read the first two books in the series and enjoyed them thoroughly but found the writing less than perfect and the characterisation somewhat lacking, but Angus Donald now seems to have found his stride and gotten to know his characters and the books get better. I was actually sad when this one came to an end because I was enjoying it so much. One of the things I find very good is the different "take" on the old story of Robin Hood and his relationship with Richard the Lionheart. We all know the bare bones of the legend but this series takes those bare bones and puts some flesh on them in a very believable way. A lot of the historical detail is also well-researched and brought to life in a very authentic way, for example the battles of Acre and Arsuf which I happen to have recently studied and which are very well and truthfully described.,

By the way, I loved the newly-introduced character of Eleanor of Aquitaine, queen and mother of kings. I could have stood to read more of her. Also Hanno the German (or rather Bavarian because Germany did not exist as a country in those days), and the older characters such as Little John are developing nicely. Someone else said there are two more books to come in the series. Can I preorder them now?
