Leon Mintz has done his homework in terms of scholarship, and it shows throughout the book. The settings, religious friction, politics and the culture readers will experience as they read this first of a possible quartet, all are realistically portrayed and help create a mental world which was quite easy for me to slide into as I read the story. This is a good book for lovers of historical fiction, fans of the early medieval period and will certainly appeal to teens who like meaty read. It will be a nice addition to our historical fiction collection at the Hartland Public Library. --John R. Clark, TCM Reviews
Though the book stands on its own, this tale has all the attributes of a prolonged saga with treacherous battles and territorial disputes. The scenes are filled with action and intrigue, usually gripping in their intensity. --Julia Ann Charpentier, ForeWord Clarion Review
The Arthurian legends are not about Arthur alone. Ambrosius Aureliani tells the story of King Arthur's uncle who has his own epic of the British Isles to tell, of his own struggles for justice. For those with a love for fantasy and Arthurian lore, Ambrosius Aureliani is certainly a choice pick with plenty to entice readers to read further. --Midwest Book Review
