Title in German:
Die Legende von Ash 3. Der Steinerne Golem

In this third part Ash returns with her company through a dark and cold Europe to Burgundy. They make their way through the Visigoth´s army into the besieged Dijon where the other half of her troop helps to defend the city. She even meets with her sister the carthagian general and asks her if she also is able to hear the voices of the "Wild Machines".
Most of the book is about military discussions and meetings, detailed descriptions of armors and not really much action. It certainly shows the author´s great knowledge and wasn´t exactly uninteresting but exaggerated meticulousness about armours wasn´t my main interest I admit. Ratcliff finally seems to have found Ash´ Carthage lost in the ocean and it also seems what happened in the Middle Ages has serious effects on our present time..
I´m really curious about the solution of the mystery in the fourth and last installment "Lost Burgundy".
