Winter Siege, Paperback
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


"An absorbing re-creation of the 12th Century ...this is a fast-moving story of humbler folk caught up in cruel battles". (The Independent). "Original, atmospheric and genuinely moving ...captures the imagination and does not let go". (Giles Kristian). It's 1141 and freezing cold. Gwil, a battle-hardened mercenary, is horrified to stumble across a little girl close to death.

She has been attacked, just one more victim in a winter of atrocities.

Clutching a sliver of parchment, she is terrified - but Gwil knows what he must do.

He will bring her back to life. He will train her to fight. And together, they will hunt down the man who did this to her.

But danger looms wherever they turn. As castle after castle falls victim to siege, the icy Fens ring with rumours of a madman, of murder - and of a small piece of parchment with a terrible secret to tell, the cost of which none of them could have imagined ...

Review by

Winter Siege by Ariana Franklin and Samantha Norman is a great read!!!! I couldn't put it down!A complex tale of the 1100s that you won't soon forget!One of my "Musts" of a fantastic book is if the story lingers long after I have finished reading it....and Winter Siege has lingered with me for months!!I received this book for free to review. I am a member of Library Thing, Net Galley, Good Reads, Word Press and the Penguin Book club.D. Bettenson
