User Review  - Jess Penhallow - Goodreads

This book was strange but I did enjoy it. It was, however, far too long. I'm not averse to long books (Les Miserables being one of my favourites) but I can't help feeling that I would have enjoyed ... Read full review

I can't remember why or when this book found its way onto my reading list, so when I finally picked it up, I had absolutely no preconceptions about its contents. I found it entertaining and interesting, but I wouldn't seek out another book like it, if that makes sense. Read full review

A good read, meanders between exciting action and slower pastoral happenings. Definitely an "old classic". Read full review

User Review  - Liz - Goodreads

I have never read a book like this. It filled in some gaps in my historical knowledge of Europe that I didn't even know I had. I especially liked the way the author wove the history of three major religions, the politics and geography of the time period into the action-packed storyline. Read full review
