The story is full of heroic action, but to me it feels a bit flat, neither the exotic places of some of Haggards novels nor the historical connections of others, and with the byzantine empress causing so much problems by her jealousy and breaches of promises, one does feel imaptient, why doesn't he kill her and get the book over a hundred pages earlier?
The book itself is a bit large, about letter-sized paper, and printed in a typewriter style, but the printing is clean and well-readable.
The book is written from Olaf's point of view in the moments of his life that he remembers...
It begins with Olaf as a young man and goes through varying stages of his life and ends with his death. While it is not written in modern day English, it was very entertaining. The different relationships between Olaf and the other characters in the book such as the Augusta Lady Irene, Martina and Lady Heliodore are mesmorizing. Olaf is a man of character, a man who understands the meaning of the words duty and honor, and is wise even in his years as a young man. Even as crazy as the Augusta is she understands Olaf's worth.
It was very easy to be drawn into each of the characters in the book and I was anxious to see how Olaf Red Sword/Michael would get out of each predicament he found himself in. The man truly had to have had God on his side working miracles to get him through the hoops he had to jump through.
This was a great book well worth the read.
