As with the earlier books in this series, this one is well researched and well written. It makes the reader feel as if he or she is actually in the "Dark Ages." There is plenty of violence and bloodletting and enough suspense to keep the reader turning pages.
While not exactly a cliffhanger, there is enough of a hint of future adventures at the end of the book to let the reader know there will be future books. For me, that is terrific news. Matthew Harffy is one of my favorite historical authors. His work rivals anything out there and I cannot wait for the next chapter of this awesome series.

The wait is over..it’s time to join Beobrand on his latest adventure and this time not much of it will be spent on land as we take to the high seas in search of a missing girl.
While on a mission to bring the soon to be new Queen home Beobrand gets a blast from the past and is torn… he’s oath sworn to do as his King requests but that would mean leaving the girl to fate.
Luckily for Beo the decision is taken out of his hands, the new queen is known to Beo and after a night of feasting they have grown rather close..so much so she orders him to do whatever it takes to bring the little girl home.
Beobrand enlists the help if a group of sailors to aid him in his journey and very soon they are bound together in blood as they set sail on the trail of a group of pirates who have taken the girl hostage.
Twists and turns come aplenty and Beo’s life will never be the same.
The best addition to this story for me is young Brinin..he’s betrothed to Ardith, the girl who has been taken, and he joins Beobrand in the hunt. Brinin reminds me a lot of Beo, he’s young and headstrong and has a big part to play.
For me the plot was just amazing..dark and brutally gripping..the past haunts Beobrand and I really enjoyed it when the author gives you the chance to reflect on moments throughout the series that have impacted on the man Beo is today.
The last fight scene was pure wow factor.. brothers at arms..sacrifices are made that will shape the destiny of others.
This series goes from strength to strength and credit to the author that he manages to keep each story so fresh and entertaining.
Having devoured the book in two nights I want more!
I would give the novel 5 stars, but there are just two things that irked me throughout the read. Firstly, as the cover art of the book, and the title to a lesser extent would indicate, a lot of this novel takes place on the sea. The sea itself is quite a two-dimensional 'villain' or 'obstacle', it's either going to be smooth sailing or a bad storm. I personally feel extended sea voyages get tedious quite quickly. Secondly, Beobrand is very angry in this novel! The majority of his characterisation is 'Beobrand shouted at so-and-so, then apologised'. He has certainly been through harrowing times, but it would be nice to hear him joke or smile occasionally!
I have read six of this series. The storyline is loosely based on UK history with mention of real historical figures.
The storyline follows loosely, Book to Book as the main character and his “followers” grow older, fight more of the same type of fight with the same tactics.
The one major difference in this book is that it contains information about sailing and sea transport of that era.
Other than that, it is really just the other five books repeated again and again.
Overall, if you have not read the series, do not bother, if you want to continue or find out the next part of this tale, be aware that there is nothing special or surprising here.
I would be just as happy to have put my money into a completely different series.
If you like historical fiction don't hesitate dive right in you won't regret it
cornwells uthred as the greatest saxon hero
A tale which has plenty of intrigue and violence following our brooding hero to Frankia. The characters are well conceived, the story believable and the setting well drawn.
I'm not qualified to be picky about historical accuracy and such and I don't suppose it will win a Booker prize but it is thoroughly enjoyable. Nearly Cornwell....
Beobrand is compelled to to undergo his most dangerous and daring quest yet. The prospect of blood and heroism does not leave the reader disappointed.
The anticipation of what lay ahead in the story meant that I had great difficulty in putting the book down, and that rarely happens.
Another masterpiece from this brilliant author.
New characters are added to Beobrand's family in this adventure. And he's not fighting the Waelisc or Picts this time which makes for a number of new locations and enemies. The common theme of Beobrand trying to do the right thing by his sense of honour is there throughout with him tormented over oathsworn duty to his king versus dire need to rescue the fair maid before it's too late.
A great read that continues Beobrand's saga, developing his, and others, characters. Matthew Harffy has nicely balanced Beobrand's tormented soul with fiery warlord mien that we've come to love over the series.
Can't wait for his next adventure!
