Marcus Pailing
Marcus Pailing is on page 20 of 287 of Blood Cries Afar: The Forgotten Invasion of England 1216
Not happy about the poor quality of the cover - it's all curled back on itself, having done so almost as soon as I opened the book for the first time. For a £15 book I would expect better quality paper.

Content's fine, though ... :-)

Blood Cries Afar: The Forgotten Invasion of England 1216

Marcus Pailing
Marcus Pailing is 65% done with The Leopards of Normandy: Devil: Leopards of Normandy 1
This blurb is arrant nonsense:

"David Churchill writes with the immediacy of Conn Iggulden ..." No he doesn't.

"... the epic ambition of Bernard Cornwell ..." which is an insult to Cornwell ...

"... and the plotting of CJ Sansom." Are you insane?

It's poorly written, one-dimensional nonsense.

Marcus Pailing
Marcus Pailing is on page 55 of 576 of Kingmaker: Winter Pilgrims
Good start - although I'm really not sure about this use of the present tense. It's not working for me - although in every other respect it's looking promising.

Hats off to Berwick Coates - it takes a special kind of author to make 1066 a dull year!

Marcus Pailing is on page 50 of 368 of Warriors of the Storm (The Saxon Stories, #9)
Only 50 pages in and it's already fantastic - by golly, but Cornwell's a great story-teller.

Marcus Pailing is starting Britannia (Eagle, #14)
Seems to suggest that I've given this one star. I haven't - I've only read Chapter 1!
