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.

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.
