'Gripping ... The narrative is exceptionally pacey and atmospheric;
it has heart. The historical background is fascinating, accurate
and thoroughly researched. The novel's characterisation is
thoroughly rounded and convincing. It is an exceptionally
well-written book with such vivid prose it easily transports the
reader back into the high medieval world' Historical Novel
