This one is lots of fun. It's packed with action and adventure. The now shipwrecked crew of the Diana fight for their lives by land and sea. If they ever make another Patrick O'brian movie The Nutmeg of Consolation would make an excellent storyline. Loved it.
This book is an interesting read with good narration. If you are a history buff you'll love it, but if you are looking for an epic tale written in a dramatic fashion you will be disappointed. It reads like a textbook, a good entertaining, and informative textbook, but definitely not an epic tale of adventure written for entertainment.
The sources are slim for Attila, his literate contemporaries feared and hated him but the author does a great job of walking you through what is known about Attila from written sources and archaeology, and separating fact from fiction. He clearly knows his subject and you will too after you listen to this audiobook.
If you're interested in archery, horsemanship or ancient warfare you'll enjoy this book because the author goes into detail explaining exactly how the Huns fought, the incredible skill and dedication required for horse archery,(the section on horse archery is amazing) and the devastating effect of their tactics.
They just keep getting better and better. Drama at sea and a horrifying battle on land. Another epic tale. If you enjoy the series you'll love this one.
