Very nice and a good read like book 1. I tried to buy book 2 but unfortunately I can find it. Didn't you publish this volume?

Another good book.

Awesome alternative historical timeline series

Reviewed it on September 21, 2023

This series is a fun romp involving a reincarnated old man from the 21st century occupying the body of a medieval baron. Navigating politics and beliefs of the time while introducing new technologies, weaponry, tactics, philosophies and strategic planning. These books are a real fun read (I also highly recommend Ed's other books - all of them).

Very interesting use of opportunity

Excellent book

All three series worth reading together

Production and management techniques are key

Reviewed it on September 5, 2023

Loved the practical approach. He's being driven to be the king of England at the least but with a string dash of real politics. Spelling needs a lot of work. Syntaxes suffers by the absence of definite articles among other items.

great writing

Another fun book.

I really enjoy Ed's books.Since I am an engineer it's fun to see how the protagonist solves his challenges. My ancestors were from Cornwall so it is also fun to see Cornwall ruling the area.


Great linkage with cross supports of technology

Some one needs to do a copy edit. A global edit for the word “new” and replace with “knew” with a human to validate would be good. Saw this several times. Possible over use of a spell-check program instead of an editor? Really like the variation of the threads in the story and it is not a copy paste repeat. Looking forward to the next book.
