Pretty brutal depiction of post roman Britain.

Grew on me after getting through initial strangeness but once the world is built, immensely enjoyable and kept me busy on Wikipedia. Apart from long winded exposition, very interesting and a brutal affair.

Long in the tooth...BUT!

Admirably done
A great take on an old story. Made you do some research on pre-Roman Briton. Takes the fictional literary yarn of Author much more human.
Twas a bit long but gripping in the end. Bernard Cornwell delivers for me.

Slow and boring

Story was so slow, i almost stopped in many occasions. The accents were poor and really annoying. I had high hopes as I love the sharpe series by Bernard Cornwall, but I will not be getting the second in the series.
