    I think it s worth bearing in mind that this book reads very much like a retelling and not like a historical fiction novel As such, I m perhaps a little too close to the subject to fully enjoy it I study medieval lit for a living Like with Sutcliff s other books, I adored the way the author does her best to stay f...

    A very emotional retelling Sutcliff managed to make Cuchulain a lotlikeable than he is in the original stories, which was interesting She also made him evengay for Ferdia, which I didn t think was possible.
