Comments Hereward: The Immortals

  • Paul

    If you reach the stage where you are five books into any series, then there is a good chance you can probably consider yourself a bit of a fan. I think however it is reasonable to have different expectations from book five as you have for book one. James Wilde is well aware of this fact and has made a point allowing his characters the opportunity to evolve as this series has continued. The character of Hereward himself is a prime example. In book one, he was little more than a berserker, barely [...]

    Before I opened the book, I really didn't want to like it. I didn't want them to think I could be bought by putting my (blog) name on the back. Did I mention they'd printed a quote from my review on the back? Well, that ‘SPEESH’ there, that’s me, that is.And yet, I failed. They won.Well, you know the kind of book you know is going to be a beast right from the first sentence? This.All the old memories and pleasure from previous outings with Hereward come flooding back right from the start. [...]

    This 5th instalment in the Hereward saga sees our hero dragged low in spirits by the Romans. He desperately wants the gold and glory he promised his spear brothers but is thwarted time and again.They are treated worse than dogs by those in power, their hero status from England largely unknown or forgotten. Hereward is struggling to keep up morale and they are sent on a near suicidal mission that even if they succeed could still ultimately end in their deaths. The plotters and vipers in Constanti [...]


  • San

    I give the fifth part of Hereward 3,5 stars because I am a little conflicted about this book.The Immortals is well written and well researched (after my limited knowledge), but oh my god what happened to the editor - was there one?James Wilde loves his heroes and it shows - over the length of the book there should have been pages worth of introspection cut. So should have quite a bit of the exposition. The faster pace I am used to from the earlier books haltered again and again and I had to forc [...]

    ReviewBook 5 in this excellent series, one i have enjoyed immensely. Up to now i have been unsure what it was that made this series different, but i think i have it now.Hereward the Immortals is much more of a departure from the history, that’s not to say that James has not done his research, and doesn’t keep impeccable detail in the Byzantine world, because he does. But book 5 isn’t tied by the History of Hereward, the author gets to make suppositions, to place our hero and his men in the [...]

    I don't want to say too much as I got told off for spoilers last year, but suffice to say if you are a fan of this series, then you are going to love this book. In my opinion the series continues to go from strength to strength and I feel totally invested with the characters. In fact that is one of the main reasons I love this story the fact that there is not just one strong main character but several, most notably the Viking Kraki who gets a lot of page time in this book. I only have one critic [...]


  • Rebecca

    Absolutely bloody fantastic! Another page-turner, edge-of-seat read with more cliffhanging action, drama and battles than Game of Thrones and The Bourgois put together! James Wilde is giving Hereward the adventure of a lifetime and the reader a tour of historical events with the power of a whirlwind. Truly enjoyed every chapter. Immediately preordered Book 6 upon finishing last page. At least I dont have long to wait for my next Hereward fix. Historical fiction fans MUST READ this series. This f [...]
