Master Of The Cauldron (Lord Of The Isles Saga book 6) by David Drake (book review).

‘Master Of The Cauldron’ is the sixth in David Drakes’ ongoing ‘Lord Of The Isles Saga’. I must admit to approaching long series like this with suspicion as I am not sure what an author can say in six books which could not have been said in a tighter trilogy. Nonetheless, on we go to […]

See that’s why there’s a review for this book on a fantasy reviewing website. Anyway, Camille Durbonne and her little sister, Sarah, are very nearly destitute […]
