Amazon book reviews.
"The Moon Worshippers" is, by any standard, a cracking read. If you like a well-spun yarn full of excitement and mystery, you'll enjoy reading this. The characters are well-drawn, and enlist your sympathy or your hatred as the tale unfolds. The scenes and settings are immediately clear to your mind's eye. What I particularly enjoyed was the manner in which the author wove his story, his characters and their faiths and conflicts into an utterly convincing historical background. I knew next to nothing of the history of this period, or of the geographical areas which feature - but I soon was enabled to rattle on with the story. There is no dry dustiness here, but factual detail on a sweeping scale from domestic to continental is winningly conveyed. As a child I used to devour the novels of Rosemary Sutcliffe. I've recently revisited two or three of them, and wasn't disappointed. They were as exciting and involving as I recalled. "The Moon Worshippers" can hold its own in such exalted company, and will stand the comparison.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read, 4

This review is for: The Moon Worshippers (Paperback)
What a brilliant read along the lines of Tolkien but with an amazing amount of accurate historical and geographical detail. It really gets into the passion and nature of the Basque people and their country. Such an amazing atmosphere is evoked and draws you to share in a wide range of emotions for the central characters both two legged and four!! It leaves you wanting more and very hopeful that the author will oblige. It would make an excellent film.
