That's what I would like to know. It reads like real events... however I've never been able to track down a priest whose story matches the one Lawhead puts together.Is Byzantium historical Fantasy or Historical Fiction?
Really enjoyed Byzantium as well, though not read his other works.His Dragon King Trilogy is poor. The Celtic Crusades Trilogy is okay. Byzantium is superb.
He is a very uneven author.
I've tried to look into that as well, but not found any reference to the monks. I've had to conclude it's therefore an historical fiction.Is it a true story?
I remember the book as a bit slow, but really gets into its own once the Vikings reach Constantinople.To each their own, but I found Byzantium to be a great cause of involuntary naps.
