    The Burning Lands

    I liked the book for several reasons. I spent two tears of my life living in England in the areas here depicted. It is fun to fill the blanks with historical background even when much is fiction. Also, I enjoy the adventures of Uhtred, Lord of Babbenburg. Further, some of my relatives come from Dumholm, like Mr. Cornwall. As for this episode, though complete in its story and integrated into the Saxon tales, I felt it did not have the same level of detail found in Mr. Cornwallis other books. This might be due to magnitude of the tale, the need to elevate the altitude to keep the story to a similar size to the other books of the Saxon tales. I understand the lesser need for character development in the later volumes of the tales of those from previous volumes. Overall, there seemed to be more summarized narration than the previous books. Yet, I appreciate the need to allow the book to stand on its own. Finally, Skade was a great villaness. It is too bad she was introduced and killed in this single volume of the tales. Good villains are hard to come by. Thank you for this work.
