“. . . a highly engaging read. The fusion of medieval fiction and Germanic myth coupled with Spader’s rich, immersive writing style create an utterly readable narrative. The action is nonstop, . .
Gerwulf, in particular, is a remarkably complex character, and his world is both magical and visceral. . . . examining not only the relationship between religious belief and war but also the consequences of intolerance, ignorance, and fear.”
