I very much enjoyed the first Three of this series, The Narration in particular was very good & made the characters come alive. The fourth not so good, but not bad either.
But Wolves of the North, i did not enjoy, too confusing trying to work out who was real & who was a mythical character, & too confusing trying to remember who was on who's side.
This book may be better in print where you can keep flicking back to try to follow the story line.
The story finishes in mid flight presumably to encourage fans such as myself to look forward to the next episode, but i doubt that i will bother about the sequel to this.
Nick Bolton as usual read very well, but i feel he was let down by the story.
"More of the same"
I have enjoyed all of the Warrior Of Rome books and alway7s look forward to the next one. This was simply "the next one".
