    One thought on “The Traitors' Pit”

    1. Traitor's Pit can proudly stand as a worthy and successful sequel to Bone Thief. We witness Wulfgar get embroiled in an emotional and legal dilema as he tries to save his brother from treasonous charges. However he is summoned away and finds himself in yet more political intrigue with lords of the north from Jorvik/York as part of his service for the Lady of Mercia. His loyalty has him sent to the danish strongholds of the north where he meets with the Atheling once more and is witness to a murd [...]

    2. I loved THE BONE THIEF - the novel that introduced Wulfgar, the sub-deacon and found this second novel, just as involving. I’m fascinated by the small details of the time and period around 900 AD, and deeply impressed by V M Whitworth’s knowledge, however, it is Wulfgar’s struggle to do what is right, and even to see what is right, that grips me most - in a world where rulers and loyalties change at great speed and most people live on the brink of chaos. I was so glad to meet again some of [...]

    3. This series is getting good, definitely one for fans of Bernard Cornwells Last Kingdom series as it is set in the same period and features many of the same historic characters. The hero is also very likeable, being more of an Everyman as opposed to a Teutonic warrior.

    4. I loved it. One of my very minor issues with the first book in the series, The Bone Thief, was that initially it seemed to drag on a tad and take a while to really get going, but Whitworth seems to have eliminated that completely with the second in the series. I found that the chapters were the perfect length for me and that it was often difficult for me to put the book down. As with the first novel, the characters were as brilliant and involving as ever and I continue to love Wulfgar as the unl [...]

    5. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes historical mysteries. It is set in Anglo-Saxon times (circa 900CE) and features Wulfgar's next adventures following those presented in The Bone Thief. He sets out to exonerate his older brother Wystan, who stands accused of treason, but his duty to serve his Lady causes many digressions before he can come to terms with the crisis in his family.

    6. Cracking good time.This is a really fun read. The way the seeds of the rebellion/invasion against Edward the Elder under the leadership of Æthelwold are presented are totally believable and compelling.Wulfgar and his companions are a wonderful ensemble who I want to know better.I wish the third book (or anything else in V.M. Whitworth's vision of Anglo-Saxon England) were already available.
