    "Ismere: a story of the Lady of the Mercians." Ismere, Martin wall's novel set in a Dark Ages England beset by Viking raids, is every bit the gripping, emotional, and exciting story Aneirin, its aged narrator and main character, assures his young listeners it is. Aneirin's life, from its love-racked beginnings to its war-ravaged glory years in service to the Lady Aethelfleda, features more violence, hardship, and humour than ten more ordinary lives, and Wall is to be credited for his skill in stage-managing it all so efficiently. There's plenty of human drama in Ismere, which in many instances seems patterned after the narrative style of the Icelandic saga, and when Aneirin concludes the telling of his life story, readers feel that this life has encompassed an entire age... Steve Donoghue. Reviewer for the Historical Novel Society online review, May 2009.

    "Read this!" Fantastic book. Read it in two days. Fascinating life story of a Briton who witnesses the horror and carnage of the battle of Tettenhall from the Anglo-Saxon side. The spiritual life of the main character and the bond with the earth of his homeland is beautifully evoked. It is a gripping tale of love, loss and redemption. Can't wait for Mr Wall's next tome!
