Such promise. An enigmatic title; crossed axes cover illustration (yes Virginia, some people do judge a book by its cover) even an endorsement by Bernard Cornwell, doyen of historical fiction, author of a slew of Sharp novels, author of a series of novels set in the same time period as Low's "White Raven" and yet, this novel does not come together for me. Is it me or is it the book (after all, fool that I am) I read almost the whole thing. Confused and muddled, slow and aimless. The plot exasperates and leaves me wondering if I've left something out. Or did Low's novel leave something out? Unsatisfying and disappointing.

Another great book in this series.

Orm Bearslayer wants to settle down on a farm and forget about the oath and Attila's treasure but the tale of this fantastic treasure has spread and men start to gather in the hopes of Orm leading them to it. Given no choice, Orm must lead his men back across the steppes and on the way they encounter a child with a talent for telling stories, old and new enemies and a mysterious band of women who will do anything to prevent the treasure from being taken.

This continues to be an action packed adventure series with great characters. Robert Low is a master storyteller and I look forward to the next riveting tale.
