This is what you get when you take a historical re-enactor and ask them to write a novel. And it's great!
Set around 1066 I must admit I'm not overly familiar with the period. I studied it at school but that was when I was about 8, so I found myself really enjoying all the little details the author throws into the story throughout. Her knowledge of clothing, weaponry, family life etc is excellent but it's woven so finely into the story that it really adds a major dimension to the book.
The main character, Wulfhere, is a good one. Polarizing. He's not all good or all bad, just like a real person. I must admit though his infidelity rankled with me, especially given his small children, and I felt sorry for his wife having to deal with his nonsense! But people did that back then - it was more accepted and "normal" than it is nowadays - so Wulfhere's wife's outraged reaction to his straying seemed a little unrealistic to me. Still, it let me understand her feelings better.
The "baddies" are nicely set up, and I'm looking forward to seeing Wulfhere deal out some justice in the form of major arse-kicking in the next book - Helghi and his son deserve it! Actually, the lack of action in Sons of the Wolf is my major issue. I would have preferred more blood and thunder and less of the family/relationship stuff but I must stress that is purely my personal taste. Overall the balance between action and character interaction will probably be spot-on for most readers.
This is a well written novel, filled with historical detail that brings the whole thing to life, following a main character who has plenty of potential to become a real favourite as the series progresses.
