    I came to Lawhead via his much vaunted Merlin series This, is quite a different series, and one in which he excels More historical than fantasy, I am amazed that Lawhead doesn t have a wider following, as he recounts a riveting tale, populated by fascinating characters.The Celtic series spans some 1,500 pages and if ps2 3 come up to parr with this first excellent intstallment, then I have much to look forward to, and will be reading the next 2 in quick succession p2 starting shortly Two tale I came to Lawhead via his much vaunted Merlin series This, is quite a different series, and one in which he excels More...

    I wasn t quite expecting the Knights Templar side story, but it was an interesting story of the Crusades However, it is so, so, so very Protestant and therefore, the author doesn t always quite have his arms around Catholic piety I m pretty sure Lent was observed by this time...

    I ve been on a Lawhead kick lately the Celtic Crusades series is another of his I ve long put off reading for one reason or another I was pleasantly surprised at how much I it While told in third person, Lawhead avoids for the most part the telling rather than showing of his characters emotions and motivations that is the bane of so many writers and even himself in other books The history is fascinating, the plot compelling, and the pacing excellent especially considering how easy i I ve been on a Lawhead kick lately the Celtic Crusades series is another of his I ve long put off reading for one reason or another I was pleasantly surprised at how much I it While told in third person, Lawhead avoids for the most part the telling rather than showing of his characters emotions and motivations that is the bane of so many writers and even himself in other books The history is fascinating, the plot compelling, and the pacing excellent especially considering how easy it would have been to get bogged down in the minutia of ...

    Big thank you to Adam, for recommending a book with my name in the title It was really interesting to read a post grimdark fantasy series in 2016 I could feel the ideas evolving towards a bleaker world view through the depictions of graphic violence against civilians and the flagrant self interest of the highest ranking noblemen, although Bohemond and Dalassenus still came over as extremely charismatic figures It was interesting to contrast this with the major plot resolution which upheld king Big thank you to Adam, for recommending a book with my name in the title It was really interesting to read a post grimdark fantasy series in 2016 I could feel the ideas evolving towards a bleaker world view th...

    I enjoyed this book quite a bit I have read it several times now I probably read it once every other year or so not quite once a year I think it has a good flow to it, overall It was very descriptive in parts it also helped me see the Crusades in a new light So that was good.The basic gist of the plot is this a young man Murdo is unable to go on one of the first Crusades with his father and older brothers Not realizing how large the world truly is, he anticipates his father and broth I enjoyed this book quite a bit I have read it several times now I probably read it once every other year or so not quite once a year I think it has a good flow to it, overall It was very descriptive in parts it also helped me see the Crusades in a new light So that was good.The basic gist of the plot is this a young man Murdo is unable to go on one of the first Crusades with his father and older brothers Not realizing how large the world truly is, he anticipates his father and brothers returning within the year while he takes care of their homestead with his mother Their lands are illegally seized and they are forced to flee for their lives to a ...

    The story of Murdo and the back story of the modern secret society worked pretty well but the politics of Crusader and Byzantium were uninteresting, simplistic and faulty moralism Lawhead can write pretty well with an engaging story and the idea of the Lance isn t a bad one, but if it is going to be set within real history then the reality must be convincing and its just not I also have to wonder about the tangent a supposedly Christian fantasy writing is taking all this dangerously veeri The story of Murdo and the back story of the modern secret society worked pretty well but the politics of Crusader and By...
