REVIEW: The Crusader by JP Wilder – 5 out of 5 stars

The crusader imageReview by Alex James

I actually downloaded the entirety of this book believing it to be the sample. I read the ‘sample’, enjoyed it, and was going to buy the book before I realised I already had read it all.

The story is 11, 000 words, and I was very impressed. It read like a fantasy of the crusades. I particularly liked the heathen sorcery and Dark Men (assassins) aspects of this short story. I found it to be a twist that the Dark Men fought for the Crusaders and not the Saracens.

The story has a lot of fighting and a bit of betrayal. The action was fun to read, and I liked how it ended.

This book was free when I downloaded it from Smashwords. My only annoyance is that I felt I would have to download another book to read the continuation of this story.

Overall, if you like fantasy or the crusades then give this an immediate read!

    I have read Antpod and reviewed it. [ ] enjoyed the book. Alex is a wonderful author that I respect. I will take a read of Legends I think.

    thank you for posting this. I would love to read one of your books. which do you suggest?


    • You’re most welcome 🙂 Based on Alex’s review, I think you’d probably enjoy one of my fantasy books more – maybe Sorcery & Subterfuge (short stories) or Legends of Origin, if you’re up for a series. Have you tried Alex’s The Antpod Faction yet? That’s the next book on my reading list.
