'The descriptions and details of 12th century England jump off the page and give it a here and now reality' - reader review on amazon.co.uk 'This book has a great period feel. The details, from the ditch running down the centre of the stables to the trouble getting a hauberk (essentially a metal pullover) off a wounded man, all contribute to the feeling of reality' - reader review from amazon.co.uk
