The Lion Wakes by Robert Low
Reviews'In The Lion Wakes Robert Low has created an enthralling, complete world: profoundly researched, brilliantly imagined. The novel is intensely exciting, enjoyable and satisfying: a novel of honour, duty, chivalry, desperation, self-interest and fear - more sophisticated than almost any recent novel with an historical setting. Crackling with original descriptive prose - sudden, arresting images combined with dialogue and accents caught to perfection - there is something deeply lyrical about its use of language. Robert Low writes too well for this novel to be contained by the label of historical fiction The Lion Wakes deserves to be read by all fans of historical fiction, but also by many, many more - by all those who enjoy classic storytelling in wonderful prose'
'An outstanding novel. The Lion Wakes is a fantastic read, written by a real master of historical fiction. Low has painted a most compelling picture of 13th century Scotland. I cannot wait for the next book in the series'
'With excellent characters and an engaging plot that reeks of authenticity, The Lion Wakes is powerful stuff. Robert Low is on my to read list from now on'
Anthony Riches, author of the Empire series
