Honor by Francis Williams is an expansive tale set in the year 425 CE, sweeping the reader across the Territories of Europa with one family’s determination to find a better life. The collapse of the Roman Empire precipitated this decision when control of land and kingdoms was abandoned to those who could exert the most power. The resulting maelstrom led to a world of brutality and ongoing wars, where oppression and slavery were commonplace. In this environment, Hall ap Lugurix and his son Drysten commit to moving to Britannia, where they hope to establish a secure home. Just when it seems they may have found a possible future in the Kingdom of Ebrauc, having sworn to King Ceneus ap Coel, greed surfaces yet again to derail their plans and they are swept North to fight for their very lives. How they will survive remains a mystery right till the very climactic end.
Francis Williams’ Honor paints a very real picture of a period in history steeped in bloody violence and injustice. You can’t help feeling torn by what the characters endure, from the highs of being reunited with friends and family through to the utter devastation of losing a loved one to war. The principal players in the story are all real and relatable, and the relationships between them are crafted in a manner that evokes genuine empathy for their wellbeing. This is an epic book covering a significant number of minor and major conflicts, which makes it ideal for those not faint of heart. The end will certainly leave you breathless.
