Jason Lolus  PACIFIC BOOK REVIEW excerpt 8-21-2015

“Brilliant interpretation of one of the most significant and sometimes overlooked battles in English history: The Battle of Hastings.”  

“They are described as ‘warrior-kings,’  a phrase that conjures the likes of Beowulf and the ‘warrior-poets’ of Braveheart.”

The history is here but has been given an Arthurian feel in landscape, style, and themes."
“…entertaining and engrossing…the author has succeeded extremely well.”

'William the Conqueror vs King Harold' is a great read. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a well-researched, historical novel.”
