This was a pretty fun read. The story is very manly with lots of chest thumping. In fact, I think fans of George R. R. Martin's fantasy series who are willing to try historical fiction may find something to enjoy here. The hero cracked me up because he went through all kinds of harrowing adventures just fine, but he is a hypochondriac and would start to whine the moment it was too chilly. I didn't finish, mostly because I got tired of the constant adventures and also because the translated language is a bit difficult.
