This series has me completely enthralled. I've never been a huge novel reader, but was recommended this author by some fellow tabletop gamers while playing the 'SAGA'. I have been plowing through these ever since! The perfect mix of historical accuracy and fiction keeps you constantly engaged, with characters so solid that they feel like your old school chums. Another great touch is the list of old/modern place names, which can really help connect you even more to the events, especially if you or your ancestors hail from British Isles. Highly recommended to anyone with an interest in the Dark Ages, even if you're not a big reader. Fans of the Vikings TV series will also love this.
