Although Uhtred is now getting on a bit, the sword wielding skill are still there, and boy can he take a beating!
Now safely ensconced in Bebbanburg he is soon drawn on Kent and is involved in the beginning of the creation of the nation of Engerland. Enjoyable piece, we know the story arc is from Alfred to Æthelstan and age wise for Uhtred that's going to cause issues, but it's best to suspend any disbelief.
Overall well narrated, I think we are now settled on Matt Bates, and worth a listen, but if you've come this far you know that already

Top notch - Max is Back!

Excellent time travelling escapades from Jodi Taylor, one of the better books of the series, though they are all good, if you've reached book 10 you know what your in for, if not where have you been, and start catching up

Being on the spectrum myself this book is an especial delight, laugh out funny and thought provoking too, Graeme you are a genius in your character creation and handling of the subject. The narration is spot on, all three book were a dream to listen to, I can't recommend this book highly enough

Well seven books in to the series and we are on an upward trajectory in quality from Lindsey Davis, the handover from Falco has been long forgotten (who?). This is another cracking Roman whodunit. Narration is good from Jane

This is a pure delight, with the intermingling of crime and nursery characters living in the world, this shouldn't work, but does and beautifully, it engaged me both as a crime mystery and also on the humour and how nursery stories can be viewed as crimes. The narration is spot on.

We demand a 3rd Series

Excellent Sit-com and mistress demands we have a third series, and mistress gets want mistress asks for, don't let her down!

Seriously this does have legs for another series Miranda's writing is top notch, although sometime very close for with the adult subject material, supporting cast excellent. I listened to the whole series in one sitting, and time flew, which to me is the hallmark of a 5 star product

Another outing for our boys Cato and Macro (Uncle Mac Mac), start in typical fashion sending the boys off to dangerous territory, but twist with a bit of psychological effect of war on people and our heroes, quite apt for the release date (Nov 2018). Very enjoyable romp into the Ancient world, Jonathan Keeble is excellent portraying the voices. One final thing this book will continue...……...

An excellent Shardlake novel, combining a murder mystery with an in depth historical account of the Norwich rebellion, a pure joy to listen to, and kept me entertain for start to finish, include the 3 hours plus of historical notes at the end, fascinating stuff

Another great historical romp, this time spanning the Elizabethan age, less Kingsbridge this time more global, and covering the religious wars between Protestants and Catholics, good plots, and characters, cross in a rich narrative, a definite must for all who enjoy their historical fiction or history brought to life

John Lee's narration is as good as ever

Enjoyable piece
