I really enjoyed this book. It is a great story. The only thing that I didn’t like is that Bond uses the “b” word for illegitimate child. I know some parents don’t like their children reading words that people today use as curse words. When I called the publisher, they thought that it had been removed from the book, but somehow it was missed. Despite this, I think the book is fabulous so you can make your own decision on this issue.
Hand of Vengeance by Douglas Bond
From the Publisher

Life is hard enough for him as a half-breed misfitâ€”until the fateful day his battleaxe is found in a dead man’s skull. Charged with murder and facing the sword of Anglo-Saxon justice, Cynwulf’s longings and dreams now hang in the balanceâ€”and so does his life.
