From the time he arrives in Ireland, almost nothing goes as expected. How he manages to meet and overcome challenges from all sides and, eventually, find a very personal reason to keep fighting the rebels is what you'll find in the rest of the book. The story is full of very realistic vignettes of how life was lived by many, perhaps most of the people in the area and at that time.
I was a member of the Clan MacColin of Glenderry, AKA St. Andrew's Guild at the Southern California Renaissance Faire when Jason was there. There is a significant feeling of pride in the group to see 'one of our own' now a published author and especially since the novel includes significant historical characters and events of the time period we portray at the Faire.
Jason Evans is a masterful author who combines masterful storytelling with a deep reservoir of historical knowledge. He's able to pull you into this era of history and keep you there with this flowing epic involving war-torn Ireland. Gallowglass is a must-read, one you won't be able to put down.
Evans sets his story in late 16th century western Europe; ranging from Spain to Britain to Ireland in the first hundred pages. Here is a time that fiction has yet to fully mine and the author takes license to show us a history typically resigned to graduate students. Filled with a marvelous cast of supporting characters, political intrigue, action, adventure, and a protagonist that grows deeper with each turn of the page, The Gallowglass is an outstanding read for any fan of European historical fiction.
As another reviewer pointed out, there are a few mistakes that slipped past the editors, but nothing more than I've encountered in any small authors work, and nothing that detracts from the story. This would be a good book for a big name author. The fact that this is the authors first book has me eager to read his next.
