Delicious fantasy "chorus" because despite what begins from what seems to be Manannan, the "Cowardly Knight" in the center of the novel, in reality soon other characters will appear who become the protagonists effect, without any of them really prevails. .. this, on the one hand makes the book a bit more difficult because you have to take into account many more names and personal lives, but on the other hand it is an unusual and nice perspective, especially in a fantasy novel and relatively short final transmission .Another important and positive feature of this book is how Gemmell traces the various characters, the evolution of their character and how they become "heroes" or "evil" (and many can be inserted in both categories), as well as the management of magic , often a weak point in many fantasy novels, but here it is well explained and integrates perfectly with the plot.

Real stories, stories that draw us in and tap our emotions always being the same way. The stories that strike our imagination, awaken our fears, or shape our illusions always beging with "ONCE UPON A TIME". We learn this phrase around a campfire, by the fireplace, or in some other intimate warmth of our home. We learn it from the lips of our grandmother, in the pages of a book stories, or in the TV screen. And from them on, whenever we hear it, launched by an ancestral or childhood memory, we're carried off to the world of fantasy.
