“[A] series…full of page-turning action, intriguing mystery and awe-inspiring scientific speculation. Full of evocative historical detail and characters who jump off the page, this is history lived by people whose future is not yet locked as our past.”—The Eternal Night
“This is fast-moving populist fiction written with a scholar’s interest in the past as Baxter brings to life Norse raiders, merchants, monks, and those who serve in the retinue of kings. It’s masterful, a mix of widescreen spectacle and telling details. Mighty impressive.”—SFX
“Well written and certainly engaging, dealing with an interesting period of history in an interesting manner.”—Strange Horizons
“If you like action, look no further. Conqueror is like a ringside seat at the History Channel as it brings alive with all vividness the Dark Ages and the blood, stench, and brutality of that era’s wars and migrations…Baxter is consistently readable, heir apparent to Sir Arthur C. Clarke’s mantle as senior British SF writer…Time’s Tapestry makes for compulsive reading. Conqueror moves its story well down the field. With its rich historical backdrop, memorable characters and fast-paced action, this is a novel that’s certain to please.”—Sci Fi Dimensions
