Recommends it for: anybody
As is customary for Hazel B. West's books, this one is absolutely wonderful. I enjoyed it the whole time and my greater concentration of thought was upon it throughout its entirety. The characters are very likable, the plot is grand. And we even get a father-son whatever-you-wan't-to-call-it to boot! (view spoiler) Also, it's happening in a Roman and Celtic setting. And then there are strange golden eyes and wolf ...more

Hazel West sent me a copy of her book, Wolfsblood, after I won it in a Goodreads giveaway. It’s a self-published historical fantasy, set in the time of Roman occupied Britain.

Alexandrus, a newly promoted centurion, is sent to Britain to try and reform the unruly Celtic cohort. When he arrives, he finds a sleepy and disorganized band of soldiers lounging around the fort. As he tries to whip the soldiers into shape a

(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).

(This review may contain spoilers).

I was reasonably sure, from the blurb of this book, that this would be a book I'd enjoy reading... but I was somewhat surprised by how much I enjoyed it by the end. It had a lot of my favourite elements in a book, especially since I've been really interested in the Ancient World.

I really liked the main character in this book. I wasn't sure I would at first, but I quickly grew to like him, especially

Recommends it for: Rosemary Sutcliff fans, historical fantasy fans
Characters: Alexandrus (Alex) is likeable. He is brave, honorable, and insecure. I don't like Romans much, in the abstract, but I like Alex. Haunted Tiberius and wild Justinius are both brave friends.

Story: See summary. It's interesting: mystery, wolves, Romans, Celts, plot twist...

Content: b*gg*r, bloody; violence, Druid magic. PG.

The main character was likable, the plot was interesting and moved at a nice pace, and this was a great book overall, with well-rounded characters. However, I felt there were a few historical inaccuracies, which spoiled the story a little for me.

I spend a good bit of my time writing historical fiction about brave men and women who have graced the pages of history, trying to bring more light to their legacies so readers of all ages will enjoy them.

My favorite things/hobbies: Writing obviously, listening to and playing Irish and Scottish folk music, practicing with all eras and types of historical weaponry, GOOD COFFEE, reading of course, d
