From the Review Pile # 6

From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by 
Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review, but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.

Shadowland by C.M.Gray

‘I have lived more years than I can remember, probably more than the sum of all your years combined. Kings have called me friend and brigands have sworn to burn the flesh from my bones even if they have to search all seven halls of the shadowland to find me.’

On the night of midwinter’s eve, a storyteller takes his listeners back to the Dark ages and a tale from his youth.

Deserted by its Roman masters, Britain has been invaded by the Saxons at the invitation of Vortigern, traitorous leader of the Britons. Now, as the tribes unite to reclaim their land, one man must rise to lead them and become their true and only king.

I have actually finished reading this book and its quite a good one. But for some reason I just cannot get myself to sit down & write a review. Have you ever had that problem?

  1. I have. Some books leave me at a loss for words, and not always in a bad way. I love the synopsis of this one. I might have to check it out.
