Well, here’s a book with its own YouTube clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFIxzqHVATA
Pretty impressive eh? Unfortunately for me, the clip is a bit more impressive than the novel. Set in the British civil war (Charles 1 vs Roundheads) it is a brother vs brother yarn. You get the idea – a family torn usunder etc etc.
I couldn’t get myself to like the characters – except perhaps the mother who at one point dresses in full amour to charge the Roundheads invading her home. I don’t really care enough to try the second novel of the series. Too many heads exploding into a red mist – not really appropriate for the time.
If you want a quick read of this nature, you certainly could do worse. But there are better books waiting for you out there.
