Storm of Steel Review
Estria interessante, pesquisa histrica menos conseguida. Ex: laranjas nesse tempo s amargas e junto ao mediterrneo. Pelas doces seria preciso esperar mais 500 anos.
Fast paced all action series of books . Always a page turner when reading Matthew Harffy, cant wait to read the next book in the series.
I always enjoy the stories woven by the author. I have followed this series from the beginning and will look forward to the next book by this author.
I am probably biased because I like this author so much, but this book is unputdownable - much like all his others (including the shorter Kin of Cain). Read the Bernicia Chronicles, you will not regret it!
I have read all 6 books in a matter of several weeks. I haven't been invested in a series like this since Outlander. A wonderfully exciting adventure.
Good story good plot very enjoyable would recommend
