One of my favorite authors. I blaze through his books in a couple of days. The books tend to have a religious bent so if that isn't your thing, stay away from this author.

I really enjoyed this book. It's good historical fiction; its hero is an Irish monk who ends up a slave of the Vikings and then in the Holy Roman Emperor's court in Constantinople. There's enough action and misadventure and plot twists to keep the reader entertained, and it really reads quite quickly. I did wish that the book included an introduction to help put the story into historical context -- I had to do a little research to remind myself why Constantinople was the "new Rome" in pre-Crusades Middle Ages -- but that's why we have google, I guess.
