Product description

Product Description

'Historical fiction doesn't get much better than this' ANGUS DONALD, author of The Outlaw Chronicles.

'Matthew Harffy's tale of England in the Dark Ages is nothing less than superb' HISTORICAL NOVEL SOCIETY.

'Murder, betrayal and vengeance fuel tribal warfare and personal combat. Beobrand is the warrior to follow' DAVID GILMAN.

Beobrand is compelled by his brother's almost-certain murder to embark on a quest for revenge in the war-ravaged kingdoms of Northumbria. The land is rife with danger, as warlords vie for supremacy and dominion. In the battles for control of the region, new oaths are made and broken, and loyalties are tested to the limits.

As he closes in on his kin's slayer, can Beobrand mete out the vengeance he craves without sacrificing his honour... or even his soul?

'I can't recall when I read a book as engrossing and entertaining'

'An all round cracking debut'

'Brilliant, read it in about four sittings, sheer pleasure!'

'I can only highly recommend this rather superb read and rate it 5 stars'

I chose to give this book five stars because it is a brilliant read. Compelling characters and exciting storylines make you want to find out what happens next. I have read a lot of books and I continually was gobsmacked by the turn of events. I've read the entire series so far and I can't wait for the next instalment. I hope the author doesn't stop there because I relished every page.

New author, new genre for me. But it was a great experience. Harffy's writing was descriptive yet to the point. Never did it get boring or repetitive.

I love history, but have always been more interested in the two great wars and the settling of the wild west than Roman history. Now, thanks to Harffy's endeavors, I have a new area of interest to pursue. I am looking forward to the next in this series.

Thank you to Head of Zeus, Aria via Netgalley for providing a digital copy of The Serpent Sword for review. All opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

The Serpent Sword is a stunning book. I can’t recall when I read a book as engrossing and entertaining. It’s a gripping story told with style and verve.

This is an epic tale of men and women swept up by terrible events. The hand of fate lies heavy on them but they strive their utmost to seize and shape their destinies. In doing so they court disaster and despair. The novel is powered by an intricate interplay between character and plot, each driving the story forward with unstoppable momentum.

Matthew Harrfy creates a world of unforgettable characters. Beobrand is a young man forced to face terrible choices. Sometimes he chooses wisely, other times less well. His journey is one of pain and peril and kept me reading non-stop. His enemy, Hengist, is a masterly creation, complex, beguiling and utterly ruthless. Other characters, men and women, are drawn so well I almost felt I’d met them. I walked with them in the wilds of 7th century England.

The story moves at a fast pace, with one heart-stopping event followed hard on the heels by another. There’s no time to rest for the characters in the novel and no time for the reader to do so either. I read the book in one sitting. I went to bed thinking about it and woke up the same.

Matthew Harrfy is a master story-teller; the Serpent Sword a wonderful book. I can’t wait to read the sequels.
