Rated 5 out of 5 by from Death of Kings A great read. The entire series has been a evocative read that gives some much needed perspective on the historical facts and the harder reality of the harshness and often short live people once had. An often gritty account of the much lorded words of Tarantino in Pulp Fiction to Z "Marcelous is gonna get some brothers an we're gonna get Medievil on Z's ass" or words close to that effect. If only he knew Skade a woman to do the job many men would shy from. Epic scene setting, mabe Tarantino should get medievil and film it....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very enjoyable Nice read but all seemed to be a little rushed at the end. 7-8ths to set the scene and the climax done in 20 pages. I felt a little cheated by the conclusion of the book
