    Attila's Treasure Comment

    1. I hardly could put this book down The story of Hagan, Hildegard, Attila, etc is told so well in this version of the old Germanic Saga He especially brought to life the multi faceted and often misunderstood person of Hagan Very well done.


    2. I would suggest reading Rhinegold prior to starting this book It made a big difference to understanding the story, particularly the end I enjoyed the historical aspects of this story and actually was quite interested in Hagan I am not in anyway familiar with the characters or the era it is set in and found both to be quite fascinating It was well written, if a little to detail oriented for my taste Worth the read.


    3. Historically interesting to learn about the Huns and their interaction with various tribes in Europe, but I wanted to feel invested in the characters Perhaps reading Rhinegold first would have given context and helped with that.


    4. A sequel of sorts to Rhinegold, this book offers a sympathetic and moving view of Hagan, Sigifrith s slayer He is portrayed as something of a changeling who doesn t quite seem to fit his world And yet he is fully human and very complex.
