Ethan Cadfael: The Battle Prince is the perfect otherworld novel, with enough twist and turns to keep an aficionado of the genre happy. I’d happily recommend this as a “gateway drug” to fantasy novels.

I highly recommend getting this book and devouring it. It’ll leave a smile on your face.

I'm having a hard time coming to terms with writing a review for this novel.

Ethan Cadfael: The Battle Prince

What a joyous, fun read. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and couldn't have asked for a better light hearted romp through Ottawa. Before I go further I will divide my review into two parts.

I reviewed this book for Geek Inked Magazine, here is the summary:

"This book was pretty much a best case scenerio, which is one of the qualities that made it a light, fun read. The only drawback to this is that it left me hungering for the story to go into more depth… but that is the classic drawback of every book that succeeds in the “light, fun read” category. It seems like you can’t have it both ways. All in all, it was a pleasant reading experience and I would definitely like to read the aut

Ethan Cadfael the Battle Prince gripped me early on. It is a wonderful tale blending modern day Ottawa with a fantastical other world filled with castles, knights, and warrior women. I thoroughly enjoyed the journey I went on while reading this book.
