Vindolanda by Adrian Goldsworthy My rating: 4 of 5 stars I have received the copy on Netgalley. First, I will start at the end.

Blood and Blade by Matthew Harffy My rating: 5 of 5 stars When I came to Bernicia I dreamt of becoming a warrior. Of battle-glory and fame. I knew nothing then. The third instalment of Bernicia Chronicles is a non-stop battle, whether is it a real battle on the field or Beobrand's personal battle with… Continue reading Blood and Blade by Matthew Harffy
