    About "M.J. Logue"

    1. M.J. Logue

      Writer, mad cake lady, re enactor, historian Been slightly potty about the clankier side of Ironside for around 20 years, and lists amongst my heroes in this unworthy world Sir Thomas Fairfax, Elizabeth Cromwell and John Webster for his sense of humour When not purveying historically accurate cake to various re enactment groups across the country, M.J Logue can usually be discovered practising in her garden with a cavalry backsword.

    1. The nature of the narrative in these books is becoming intriguing, episodic and at times annoyingly missing information out until later Much is hinted at, little is directly said The last 20% of this one is very moving and captures issues and loss in a way that I found very well done Moves effortlessly from the grand stage to the domestic and portrays a pretty war weary nation Note this was read out of sequence as the book is marked as number 3 when in fact it is number 4 in the sequence hence s [...]


    2. This is an unusual, and rather wonderful, book Set in the 17th century, during the Civil War between King Charles of England and Oliver Cromwell, it s a mix of gritty action on the battlefield and off , excellent descriptions, and complex characterization I love books in which the characters develop and change throughout the course of the story, and this can be said especially of the main players in this intense and well written saga in particular, Colonel Hollie Babbitt, unit commander in the A [...]


    3. Two years have passed since Command the Raven Hollie Babbitt is now a Colonel of Horse in the New Model Army and a father The action picks up in the aftermath of the Battle of Naseby Thankful Russell has been blinded by a shot to the head and Luce Pettitt is in love As with the previous two in the series these are social histories A Wilderness of Sin features birth, marriage and death as well as love and tragedy Pestilence is of a danger than war, but the politics of the army are a clear danger [...]


    4. A WILDERNESS OF SIN begins in the aftermath of the battle of Naseby in June 1645 during which Hapless has been badly wounded in an altercation that has nothing to do with King and Parliament and everything to do with Trooper Gray Once again the broken men return to Het for mending but Hollie has to return to the war and a New Model Army which has no time or patience for men like him As the Parliamentary forces start mopping up the last royalist resistance, the war has become a tedious routine of [...]


    5. Let me start out this review by stating that I absolutely loved the first two books in the series and wondered if the author would continue to elicit my love in book number 3 It is the opinion of this humble, yet somewhat revered scribbler of reviews, that M.J Logue has risen above the rather high expectations I had for Wilderness of Sin This is a war story that, while it does provide excellent accounts of the battles and sieges, is in the way of a delving into what makes people tick kind of a [...]


    6. As I previously said about Red Horse , this book is a total delight.Ms Logue brings the Un Civil War alive in a believable and at time heart wrenching, at times humourous way, that makes the reader cry and laugh in equal measure.The book characters are skilfully interwoven with genuine Civil War era characters making this a very believable read so much so I can almost hear Hollie saying, What art thou saying woman Dost thou not believe I m genuine Come thee here I ll show ee
