Good storytelling. I really like all kinds of historical fiction. The old europe stuff is my bag right now.
Laefric was good because he told Uhtred how it really was
This series takes place in an interesting time in history and the author has devised a way to have one character tell about both the Saxons and the Danes (Vikings). Interesting, pretty well written, but too much battle.
I loved the reader of this book. I had never read or listened to Bernard Cornwell books before. I thought the story was great, but I have to admit to feeling let down at the end of this story. I kept thinking that I must have somehow missed a part at the end of this story....but I don't think so. The ending is too abrupt. It left me wanting more, but then maybe he plans to make this a series like his other books.
