"January, 1069: Less than three years after the Battle of Hastings, two thousand Normans march to subdue the troublesome province of Northumbria. Tancred a Dinant, a loyal and ambitious knight, is among them, hungry for battle, honor, silver, and land. But at Durham, the Normans are ambushed by English rebels, and Tancred's revered lord Robert de Commines is slain. Badly wounded and bitterly determined to exact vengeance, Tancred uncovers a plot that harks back to the day of Hastings itself. If successful, it threatens to destroy the entire conquest -- and change the course of history."--Page 4 of cover.

His first book was not as bad as this one. I thought this was more of the same old same old. The characters had nothing going for them & the whole book was full of descriptions of the same thing over & over again. Not good.

Obviously my rating will give away the fact that I did not enjoy this story much. If I'm going to read a book this wordy and descriptive I need characters that I can enjoy. I really found only Tancred was sufficiently fleshed out as a character and he did not capture my imagination at all. Everyone else is just a name with no personality.

There is no doubt in my mind that this author did a phenomenal job of the research and history. I, personally, just needed something more.
