Nothing like a new Uhtred tale to warm me up for mid-winter. A new narrator from the rest of the series, that took a little getting used to, but he did a great job, even if he sounded younger as Uhtred gets older. Another year or more, then the next ...more

A good story, well told. Really fun! Could have been a typical cookie-cutter novel in its genre, but far from it! The first few chapters go a little long in setting the stage, but once the action starts, it runs a quick pace to the end!

A salute to a life of freedom claimed, but with a refusal to release naivete and a belief that other people would take care of life's messy details. It made her an easy scapegoat with a tragic end.

Not sure if it was the author, or the narrator, or both, but I came away from this feeling like I was reading the Doc Martin of Roman Britain. That's not a bad thing! I love books that teach me history through great characters and their everyday live ...more

This was one of those series that I miss the characters when it's over. I feel like I want to be Fb friends with them to keep up on what's going on in their lives. :)

Elizabeth Gilbert
“What’s your favorite flavor of shit sandwich?” What Manson means is that every single pursuit—no matter how wonderful and exciting and glamorous it may initially seem—comes with its own brand of shit sandwich, its own lousy side effects. As Manson writes with profound wisdom: “Everything sucks, some of the time.” You just have to decide what sort of suckage you’re willing to deal with. So the question is not so much “What are you passionate about?” The question is “What are you passionate enough about that you can endure the most disagreeable aspects of the work?” Manson explains it this way: “If you want to be a professional artist, but you aren’t willing to see your work rejected hundreds, if not thousands, of times, then you’re done before you start. If you want to be a hotshot court lawyer, but can’t stand the eighty-hour workweeks, then I’ve got bad news for you.” Because if you love and want something enough—whatever it is—then you don’t really mind eating the shit sandwich that comes with it.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear
