Very good read, very well reseached novella, it gets better as the story goes along, a very quick read.

not sure about some of the dialogue used seems abit modern to me.

some very small editing issues, which will annoy some readers, I will be messaging the author about these so he can correct them.

it also gives us a taste of the authors style of writing which good and show promise of good things to come.

ps it was a free book.

For anyone who is into the crusades and the time period catholic or not this is a great series and a even better book. I think you could pick it up read it and have no clue about the story line and really enjoy it. I loved it well written, developed and this point in the story line the characters have really blossomed into something memorable and true. I have not a single thing I can say bad about this book. Well done Mr. Vetter take a bow Sir!

I read this in one sitting. It was just as good as the preceding novel "Call to Crusade". The language flows well, and the characters are very believable. I enjoyed seeing some of the people again. Since it's a free book, you can't go wrong.

This is not my normal read but I loved it. It was well written. I like the character and I could see the scenes in my head playing out. If you like stories involving history you will definitely enjoy this short read.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story of Godric the sheriff. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading about the era of vikings, knights, crusades, and castles and likes the story to be reasonably accurate.
Great job Tom, I look forward to reading more of yours.

Those who can, do. Those who can do no longer, teach - or better still, write. Tom Vetter has done both - living it first and then writing about it.
