Well constructed story, very good, well written and a bit racey at times as you'd expect with this subject matter. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Another charming and entertaining take from this sea-going band of misfits. Looks like the series is almost finished for me though unfortunately ...but no fear, I'll go through them all again with my son.

Loved the book and loved the epilog where the author reveals what was real and where artistic license prevailed. It's a good story as expected from my favourite historical fiction author.

It's a wonderful series of the trials and travels of this band of misfits. These are uplifting tales of voyages to new lands, new discoveries and new dangers ....but the young crew get back to their mummies at the end. aaahhh !

The style of this book is a little different from the other FBI/Huntress series but I like it. I think it knits things together well and I feel like it's more of a thinkers story that still has me thinking whereas the others were entertaining but not as deep. A good story that adds some more context to the whole series. I hope there is more.

Yippee, another from the DCI Tom Douglas series

It is with no thanks to the Audible team that I happened upon this eighth book in the DCI Tom Douglas series by Rachel Abbott, and it is all you'd expect. A tip, the Goodreads site documents book series well and I have used it a few times to identify books in the series I love that Audible have neglected to link/tag/flag/label to either preceeding or succeeding books of the series. Pick up your game Audible !

A great start to the series

War, women and wounds expertly woven around historical events which seems the specialism at which Bernard Cornwall excels. This book culminates at Crecy. I'm looking forward to embarking on the second leg of this journey with our main character l, Thomas.

I can't get that out of my head now, Wyrd Bith Ful Aræd has been drilled in these last few books of the series I keep trying to find opportunities to put it out there and it'd be weird. Great catch phrase though and I hope fate continues to be on Uhtreds side. Love the extra at the end by the author too. A fascinating and knowledgeable bloke which shines through in his books.
