Anmeldelser

«Definitely recommended for historical fiction lovers (those love reading a good battle, or two. Or three). It's worth the read, with rich interesting characters, and a fantastic setting»

OKBO LOVER

«The storyline grips the audience as we learn why some from side come to fight (or defend) like Venusians, Achmed the farmer and John Grant the Scot....each character adds depth to a vivid picture in which armchair fans will believe they are witnessing the siege of Constantinople from within and outside circa 1453»

THE MYSTERY GAZETTE

«Great historical fiction for those that like seeing history through those that were there!»

A BOOKISH AFFAIR

«C C Humphreys excels as ever in the throat-in-mouth action and knows instinctively how to keep a reader pasted to the page . . . I can't wait for Humphreys' next novel . . . To my mind, Bernard Cornwell is good, but Humphreys is better»

HISTORICAL NOVELS REVIEW

«A great tale, finely woven with action, palpably real characters and terrific twists of fate»

Simon Scarrow

«Humphreys' skill with historical fiction is apparent on every page, and his ability to handle the large cast without tripping up readers is impressive. While the conquest is a foregone conclusion, Humphreys creates suspense and empathy for both sides of the conflict. Readers will enjoy reading a little-heard tale»
