    1. I received this book as an ARC free from the author I thank him for his generousity In exchange, I was simply asked to write an honest review, and post it The opinions I have expressed are my own I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission s 16 CFR, Part 255 Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising The lore shall live Mentor , said Morgose, while there is a song sayer left in the world p.272 Mentor Miridden, teacher of Ambros Skyhound, le [...]


    2. This book is set in a little known about time period, the 6th Century Meridden is a mentor He is mentor to, among others, Ambros Skyhound Ambros enjoys learning and through this has come to believe that he can unite the local population into a single province, Greater Britannia In order for this to happen we are taken on a journey narrated by Meridden.Meridden starts as the closest of confidents to Ambros who tries to guide Ambros along a true and honest path However, as the tale progresses thei [...]


    3. The story is told through the eyes of Meridden, who is a scholar, a teacher and a mentor to the young hero, Ambros Skyhound As Ambros matures he is pushed aside and he is desperately trying to save the old ways and the old gods from the religion, Christianity, which has swept through the world and has now reached his home.There are several very good books in the fantasy genre that deal with the Arthurian legend and live in the 6th century, but in this book you feel as if you are there You can fe [...]


    4. Original Review HereI m not sure what I was expected from The Song Sayer s Lament I think the hints of the Arthurian legend misled me because I was expecting it to link up with the story that I know.It took me a while to get into it The descriptions are long, and both people and places are given many different names the majority used every time they are mentioned It left my head reeling a little as to which were locations and which were people This distanced me from the opening of the novel my f [...]


    5. A dream in the dark ages.I must confess to struggling a little with the language of this book when I first started reading it, an English of a bygone age There is a terrifically large cast of characters, all referred to by their often lengthy praise names There is also an extensive list of wonderfully descriptive place names, a complex calendar and a smattering of Latin However, as I progressed further into the book, I realised that it is beautifully written, the language being an intricate and [...]


    6. The song sayer in question is the blind Morgose but this tale of Dark Age, post Roman Britain is narrated by Merriden, friend and mentor of the young war lord, Ambros Skyhound.Although I had a little trouble at the beginning, this is a magnificent novel covering not just one war lord s ambitions to unite the entire country under one king, but the ravages of plague, longer than normal winters and the struggle for supremacy between the old gods and the new Christians.Each page is a tapestry of pre [...]


    7. A quote from the Discovering Diamonds Review Blog I found each page to be a tapestry of absorbing description, believable characters and dialogue that gives what you would expect from those times whenever you pick this book up you are immediately taken back to a period well over a thousand years ago I entirely agree Helen Hollickfounder DDRevs
