Publisher's Summary

A rousing historical novel that rescues one of England’s forgotten heroes from the mists of early medieval history and brings him to brutal and bloody life in 1062, a time many fear is the End of Days. With the English King Edward heirless and ailing, across the grey seas in Normandy the brutal William the Bastard waits for the moment when he can drown England in a tide of blood. The ravens of war are gathering. But as King Edward’s closest advisors scheme and squabble amongst themselves, hopes of resisting the naked ambition of the Norman duke come to rest with just one man: Hereward.
To some a ruthless warrior and master tactician, to others a devil in human form, Hereward is as adept in the art of warfare as the foes that gather to claim England’s throne. But in his country’s hour of greatest need, his enemies at court have made him an outlaw. To stay alive - and a free man - he must carve a violent swathe from the frozen lands outside the capital.
The tale of a man whose deeds will become the stuff of legend, this is also the story of two mismatched allies: Hereward, the dark angel of war; and Alric, a man of peace, a monk. One man will risk everything to save the land he loves, the other will strive to save his friend’s soul.

Old English history with a good story line

Where does The Time of the Wolf: A Novel of Medieval England rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I was some what familiar with this period but this shed a new light on many of the characters involved in this period of history

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Time of the Wolf: A Novel of Medieval England?

Once the Normans had won and a true resistance started I felt that history would change for the English

What does Simon Vance bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Without a doubt Mr Vance is a true professional who has a talent to bring the characters to individual life Enjoyed all of his books

If you could take any character from The Time of the Wolf: A Novel of Medieval England out to dinner, who would it be and why?

King Edward to try and get him to see reality of his situation

Any additional comments?

I am sure I will read more in the series and learn something of time old politics from ruthless men

Compelling Story

Great historical fiction definetly worth the credit. Researching the norman conquest of britain after starting th ebook (the term researching used very loosey) its fits its purpose in retelling the story based on what little of the original account that actally existed(at the time or suqsequently). I find that european history during this time is quite enthralling given that with every ascendancy to power atleast a few of the aspirants will be killed before hand or after, and being an heir more subject to a "mysterious:" early demise, or kidnapping or exile or all 3 in various order.

And for the performance.... its Simon Vance, need I say more. As always his performance is spot on not overly theatrical, no annoying shrill irritating inflections or croaking old ladys voices booming through.

All in all worth the credit if your leanings aren't delusional enough to preclude violence from nature.
