In Wolves of War, Mr. Lake has once again given us a tale of an intriguing time in Britain's history.  The Danes, under the leadership of Ivar the Boneless have come to Britain's shores; this time it's not a raid and run endeavor, this time they've come to stay. The story revolves around the quick witted brother of a renowned blacksmith; not your typical Viking warrior, and his unexpected rise in Ivar's retinue of advisers.  Buoyed by a host of wonderful characters, both fictional (Leif,Thorvald ...more

This is a great book with a tight, riveting story that charges relentlessly from beginning to end.

I like a book that gets into it straight away and this author knows it is important to gain momentum without delay.

This is great historical fiction with interesting narrative and clearly defined characters. I really enjoyed reading it and I hope there's going to be more.

I love a good series and this author has proven he can crank out a consistently good story over a number of books.

It’s got some

Excellent read as always from Martin Lake

Like all the other books from this author the storyline is so good that it keeps the reader captured not wanting to put the book down until finished. Looking forward to reading the next chapter in this story.
If you haven't read any of Martin Lakes other books I recommend that you do.

Great read

Despite a large group of characters, he does a nice job of developing his key characters. There is a great deal of action. It is a tad gruesome. The story is well thought out. It was good that the author did not over do his heroes. Their actions fit the story. Most of all. Was a well good story that moved quickly. If there is a sequel i will buy it.

Martin Lake does not disappoint. I didn’t want to put this book down. I enjoyed all of the characters, fictional and real. Thank you for another great read. I hope you’ll write another book about Lied and his adventures!

Good Story

This story provides some insight to the brutality and motivation of the people who settled Great Britain. It was an age of unwarranted cruelty and yet, many men had also a wealth of courage. The historic parts were of great interest.

Hello, I'm Martin Lake. I've been writing fiction since the age of eleven when our inventive English teacher Mr Johnson asked us to imagine that we were a Guy on a Guy Fawkes bonfire. I discovered the thrill of words and character.

My favourite authors when I was young were historical novelists like Rosemary Sutcliff and Henry Treece and a galaxy of science fiction writers. Later on I discovered t
