I read 'Medieval - Blood of the Cross' in one sitting because I couldn't put it down once I started - it was that good. So it turned into an 'all-nighter' that was over far too soon.
Historical fiction that remains accurate can be difficult to achieve, however in this instance it flowed easily due to the ability of the author to use his story telling skills to full advantage. To me, part of being a good writer of historical fiction is the ability to develop a compelling story from historical fact, without changing the facts overmuch or creating new facts that have no historical basis. I felt the research for 'Medieval - Blood of the Cross' was thorough and the author was well immersed in the era, to the point that his story telling flowed naturally in and around the major events of the period.
There was excellent depth of plot too, which had plenty of twists and turns and unexpected developments, with just the right amount of pace to keep you turning page after page, after page.
Needless to say, 'Medieval - Blood of the Cross' was a cracking good read, well written and well researched. It is also a superb story, cleverly woven around historical events of the time so that you feel you are there in the thick of it. I can highly recommend it, while eagerly waiting for the next book in the series. If you love this time period, filled with the adventures of the Knights Templar, make sure you pick up a copy soon.
This issue sometimes also affected narrative flow when, in order to explain an historic detail, the author would feel obliged to interrupt his description to explain something such as a garment, which counteracted a mood he had until that point, been successfully creating.
Finally, ... and this is not exclusive to this author, when publishing independently, without the advantage of a professional editor, like many other independent authors, Ashman's writing lacks the benefit of an objective eye. There are times when errors of grammar and punctuation as well as cliched or habitual expression interrupted my engagement.
This novel is definitely worth reading. I just believe that what is an informative, enjoyable read has missed its potential to be a great and memorable read!
Avoid this one at all costs.
a history text book. Kevin Ashman has not disappointed,with a fast moving, story of a young man immersed in a tale of mystery, intrigue, and danger in a special time in history. I'm eagerly anticipating the next book.
