    One thought on “The White Rider”

    1. I have enjoyed the work of Chris Priestley every since I first stumbled across Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror which I will admit even though aimed at a younger audience I really enjoyed. I think what makes his work so appealing to me is that he can portray some very mature and chilling situations and events without being either gratuitous or long winded. He has such a refreshing simplicity in his language which I think many authors could learn from - but do not think for a second that his wor [...]

    2. This is the first book of the series I read (and who knows whether I'll pick up the others sooner or later) but I really enjoyed it. It is well put together, not too obvious not too abstract. The content (mentioning the Union 1707 and Jacobites and the like) reminded me of my time taking Higher History in Scotland~ Good timesAnyways, it is a good enjoyable read. There were some bits not entirely to my taste and especially "action scenes" as they were probably meant to be, seemed a bit clumsy to [...]

    3. *REVIEWED FOR PUBLISHER*Chris Priestley has taken the characters he introduced in Death and the Arrow and developed them, so that the reader grows with Tom and is introduced to another round of murder and intrigue. Priestly never condescends to the reader and instead encourages deductive skills and complex thinking while never once losing the plot. The perfect sequel with equal parts excitement, adventure and fun!

    4. am starting to enjoy this kind of historical fiction, it is the second novel in this series, and as small as it is , it has a VERY good plot twist and a surprise element , that will simply fool you. it is a diamond in a rough.

    5. Something about it didn't appeal to me, maybe the fact that I could see what was going to happen or just the authors style. Didn't enjoy it like I normally enjoy reading.
