Porter µ PDF Ealdorman PDF/EPUB õ µ airdomains.co ealdorman pdf, Ealdorman PDFI received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveawaysThis review may contain spoilersI actually found this book to be uite a good interesting entertaining readI can't speak for the historical accuracy of this novel I only know bits and pieces of the time this novel is set in But I found the characters to be interesting and well written and the storyline to be engaging one that kept me readingThe amount of characters with similar sounding names was a bit confusing though By the end of the book I was struggling to differentiate between the different peopleI really liked the relationships between the characters especially Leofwine and his wife The scenes between them were particularly sweet and it was nice to see that real love had grown from the arranged marriageI felt

    PDF M.J. Porter µ PDF Ealdorman PDF/EPUB õ µ airdomains.co ealdorman pdf, Ealdorman PDFThis is an unpolished gem of a book Taking place during the reign of Aethelred the Unready it follows the life of one of the king's ealdormen Leofwine It was not so long ago that I read Helen Hollick's and Pat Bracewell's books on Aethelred's second wife Emma of Normandy so I enjoyed hearing a little about what happened before her arrival in England and with a forgiving attitude toward the hapless king than those two books had It can be difficult to know the real character of a historical figure from so long ago so this balance added to my interestThe shortcoming of this book is its unpolished part the book cries out for an editor's red pencil There is at least one error per page in this novel Sometimes it is an incorrect word choice eg err vs ere; exasperating vs exacerbating typos or peculiar formatting while at other times it is going into unnecessary detail about mundane matters There is also too much te

Porter µ PDF Ealdorman PDF/EPUB õ µ airdomains.co ealdorman pdf, Ealdorman PDFInitially I found this a little slow going however after the first chapter I got into and enjoyed it though the names are a bit confusing at times with several characters share the same names The description of events differs greatly in parts with some very details and yet another ‘Leofwine’ arrives at the Witan and in the very next sentence is on his way home

    PDF M.J. Porter µ PDF Ealdorman PDF/EPUB õ µ airdomains.co ealdorman pdf, Ealdorman PDFStarted out pretty well but the uality of the writing didn't hold up throughout the book It's not as bad as a lot of the self published books I've found and the author shows promise As it went on there were errors in grammar word usage There are a lot of people in the story with names that are very similar making it hard to follow at times; the names used are historically accurate but this might be an area where a bit of author's modification would have been a good idea to change or omit some of the repetitive names and lesser characters Sometimes there is an excess of historical facts that really doesn't add to the story or depth of any of the characters; there are mentions of many persons who happened to be attending a gathering and have no other part in the story never mentioned again I'm halfway through the second book now and I would say th

Porter µ PDF Ealdorman PDF/EPUB õ µ airdomains.co ealdorman pdf, Ealdorman PDFReview from coukHaving read the Dragon of Unison books by this author I thought I'd give this book a try too I studied early Anglo Saxon Northumbria but don't know very much about that part of the later Saxon period around 1000AD or the history of that area but it was a really good read The battle scenes were well covered and the story was interesting history nearly always concerns itself with kings and court so its interesting to read about the lives of other people at that time even if they are lords and attend meetings with the king and his court I liked the characters as people apart from the ones I wasn't supposed to like and the setting was totally believable so this all helps me when I'm reading historical novels to know some actual research has been done The only criticism I have and its a minor one is that it would have been nice to hav
