Hmmm, the Tolkien estate may have grounds for a copyright Infringement case in Cornwell's latest depiction of the his go-to villain, Obadiah Hakeswill. I'd be forced to testify that I kept expecting the loathsome Sargent to start crooning "My precious... Gollum!,gollum!" towards the book's end.

Sharpe goes to sea! Most entertaining of the Sharpe early chronology so far. Less slogging, more heroics and the blessedly welcome absence of the detestable Obadiah Hakeswill!

The 21'st and last book in Bernard Cornwell's Richard Sharpe series. It's one last battle for Sharpe and Harper and a bit of an epilogue for Napoleon. This book wasn't quite necessary to end the series, but I found it a nice draw down as I've read them all in chronological order, which I'm very glad to have done. I spent several months living in Sharpe's fascinating world. I never tired of Cornwell's voice as he revealed it. His depth of historical research and accuracy may have spoiled me for other straight historical fiction writers. I'll need a well researched historical fantasy next. So on to Naomi Novik - After a few very deep breaths.… (mais)

Loved spending time with Uhtred again. Loved that Althelflaed is finally coming into her own and being badass. Forever and always love Finan, even if he wasn't too involved in the story.
