Great! An exciting adventure, bringing to life a part of our history I knew little about.
King's Company has a brilliant, flowing style, with lots of suspense and excellent characterisation. My children loved the book as did myself and my husband - it was particularly good to read out-loud and we all found it gripping and enjoyable.
A book which made me alive and excited about a long past distant century. Loved it!
An exciting historical fiction novel that entertained my 9 year old boy from beginning to end!
Good book
A truly wonderful read!
This is quality! Do not miss it.
An absolutely brilliant read.
Excellent book. Should be a shoe-in.
A great piece of historical fiction that my daughter loved.
Great read, 9 year old daughter loved it
A cracking read. Masterful storytelling to grip the imagination.
I loved this book! For me it was a return to children's historical fiction in the great tradition of Rosemary Sutcliff and Ronald Welch but with an exciting contemporary voice.
