The Devil's Army

The Devil's Army characters é E-book, or Kindle E-pub 1067 The battle of Hastings has been lost; Harold Godwinsson is dead The iron fist of William the Bastard has begun to sueeze the life out of England Villages are torched and men women and children put to the sword as the Norman king attempts to impose his cruel will upon this unruly nationBut there is one who stands in the way of the invader's savagery He Hereward James Wilde s first book in the Hereward series was a stunning debut The power and verve of the writing the impact and strength of the hero the story revealed gave Hereward an edge and a pulsating wildness that I hadn t felt from a book in a long time As if the story the book had reached up and punched me in the faceFrom the very beginning James Wilde formed Hereward into a thoroughly believable and compelling character from the forgotten mists of English history An action packed compulsive story that took no prisoners and a hero that then held a knife to your throat for the rest of the bookPhewIn general this is a familiar period 1066 and the aftermath and one also recently vividly explored from the Norman point of view in James Aitcheson s Sworn Sword and The Splintered Kingdom Here James Wilde presents it to us afresh by concentrating on a perhaps to most people unfamiliar English hero Hereward The Wake As the book jacket to the paperback of Hereward puts it The last Englishman The first freedom fighter The forgotten heroAccording to Wikipedia Hereward s The Wake epithet meaning watcher was popularly assigned to him many years after his death So whilst I can t say Hereward without also thinking The Wake no one here in these books says Hi Wake And he s certainly of a do er than a watcherRight so the uestion is then after such an impressive start can The Devil s Army live up to the startling promise of its predecessorYes It can It does And then someOf course because we re better prepared this time because we know the main characters and we know the style the second can never be as much as a surprise as the first one in any series So the writer has to perhaps work a little harder to keep it fresh keep us interested and not re tread old ground Even if like this it is a to be continued story With The Devil s Army Hereward s character broadens matures and takes on responsibilities as the story progresses He has to He finds his inner rage tempered than somewhat by the responsibility and pressures of the leadership that he hasn t exactly sought but which has pretty much come to him by dint of the rebels and him realising there is no one else willing or able to take that leadership on He realises that being a strong leader isn t just about training leading warriors and the joy of battle even though he might sometimes wish it were that simple He needs to offer the people he says he is fighting for something than just a satisfyingly bloody fight and the chance of gratification through revengeOnce he had been little than a ravening wolf driven by rage and hungry for blood shunned by all civilised folk Now he was a leader of men who had been taught the value of friendship honour and justiceHis resistance to William takes shape and he needs fighters As they fight back against the Normans so come to him willing to fight But they also come with family and friends who need to be found place to live And food to eat Ely surrounded by the almost impenetrable forests and marshes of the Fens might offer Hereward protection and a place to centre his fight back but it comes at a cost The people need to see results not an occupying force Resentment grows and surprisingly Hereward often has his work cut out convincing them he offers a better future than William At the time he most needs his people s help and support Hereward risks alienating themHereward chose his words carefully subtly reinforcing the notion that he was one of them not an outsider who had seized control of their birthplaceThey were scared they yearned for a strong leader a protector in these turbulent times and they wanted to believe every word he utteredHe needs to offer the civilised folk a future But a safe secure future that is also in the here and now Unfortunately some of the English have also come to the conclusion that this is what they want even than the restoration of their heritage They have come to the conclusion that by mercilessly crushing their fellow Englishmen the rebels supposedly fighting for them a stable future is exactly what William can not only offer them but also deliver even though it involves burning killing and even starving their fellow countrymen to deathAnd yes what of William in The Devil s Army King William the Conueror variously my Lord The Userper or The Bastard depending on how far away you are from him I guess is a constant dark and menacing presence in the country and throughout this book The Norman Alpha Male No one is bigger literally stronger or willing to go further or sink lower to get what he wants He is clearly intent on living up to a perhaps modern interpretation of The Bastard And yet interestingly on occasions James Wilde shows us that Hereward is also in danger of becoming just as ruthless and destructively determined as the man he is fighting to rid his people of Hereward can surely see this and at times seems effectively powerless forced both by necessity and circumstances to stop itHereward is of course the main character here but other characters are satisfyingly developed as well We learn about his brother Redwald He is of a courtier and politician than Hereward but also an opportunist His aims are murky or at least not very clear He sees much but says little I don t trust him one little bit And Alric the Monk Hereward s companion and conscience personified becomes a stronger character while all the time demanding and of Hereward s respect Being Hereward is not easy when you don t want to follow the sensible advice of someone who has your best interests at heart and don t know that someone you have always trusted can t be The countryside of the Fens is wonderfully described and also plays a huge part in shaping both the resistance and the writing of the story Almost a character in itselfAdd into the mix some huge surprises that I certainly didn t see coming and a final battle the like of which one comes across only very rarely a violent blood soaked ambush and chase with attack and counter attack that is impossible to tear your eyes away from and with The Devil s Army you have powerful evocative historical fiction writing of the very highest orderAnd luckily for us as they say in The 13th Warrior there are I may be getting ahead of myself here but I really feel that just two books in James Wylde has made the Hereward series the one others will be measured against
