I BOUGHT this book for a friend after reading extracts and hearing some of the spoken word. It certainly evokes feelings of a Middle Ages alternate reality where characters seem to appear with hidden messages with a feeling that there is more to be foretold. I like the way the author actually seems to be telling the story as if relating from the time and place itself. An unusual and interesting book especially with the addition of maps etc to help the reader visualise the setting to the fullest. I look forward to the future additions in this series.
