A worthwhile read into UK folklore. Excellent character development and story content. Roman, Brit, Saxon, Dane, Scots, and Irish (the wild people) glimpse from a master historical fiction author. Very highly recommended.

2nd book in the "Dream of Eagles" series. Whyte continues the story of a colony in medieval England trying to defend itself and to make laws. He describes warfare as though he lived in that time, and he shows the change in strategy as larger horses and longer swords are needed. The story is told through ironsmith Publius Varrus, whose oldest daughter marries the son of the Celtic king Ullic. Fascinating mixture of war and politics, for England is Roman in these years. Varrus has a friend Caius, a Roman senator, whose son found favor with the regent of the Emperor Honorius. History comes to life!
