I have been listering to "Books on Tape" for over 20 years. This has been one of my favorite listens. I just wanted just to learn more about Byzantium but I was drawn into a fabulous story with memorable characters.I can actually hear the Viking King bellowing his commands to his crew. Stuart Langton brings the story to life. I will just look for other books he has narrated.
I will also explore other books written by Stephen Lawhead. Enjoy.

I enjoyed this audiobook immensely. Once I caught the pace and tone of the narrator I lamented having to stop listening and anticipated the next chance I would get to return to it. I highly recommend this to those who enjoy believable historical fiction.
This is a somewhat interesting book, however, it lacked the spark that makes the characters interesting. The lead character is rather sanctimonious and I found myself really disliking him.
Excellent writing and narration. Characters were all well defined without going overboard. The story was as interesting as it was long. You will not regret purchasing this one. A keeper..
What an amazing adventure!! Ship and shipwreck, monks, kings and barbarians, people of all continents and cultures, heartbreaking loss and glorious gains. Love, friendship, treachery the common sins of mankind. Was sad to see the book end. He is a marvelous writer and the readers are wonderful too!
