Wonderful book

This book is about the early invasion of Spain by the Moors (Islamic hordes). The character descriptions are very well done and I can picture them and the locations in my mind while reading. I recommend this book to everyone.

Pretty good read!

I have read extensively about the Saracens versus Iberians 88th century wars. This is a great book recounting battles that may have been.

The plot of half-brothers of a Duke is done well with many interesting characters using historical data. I have to say the romance aspect was sorely lacking though. There was no feeling whatsoever in the characters.

Overall, this one is pretty good when you consider the military battle planning, and the depth of the characters are very limited.

This is a thrilling, well-written saga. Each chapter got better and better, the story more compelling, the twist and turns kept me guessing, the story plunging me into another world. It has a moving romantic thread that runs through it and kept me turning the pages until I got to the very end.

This novel gives a good background into the Iberian history, clashes between kingdoms and Moorish invasions. The writing is excellent, the narrative is perfect and the research is extensive. A very entertaining read.
