I am a great fan of your books. Having read the previous 11 books, I have just begun reading your latest Last Kingdom Series book ‘Sword of Kings’. I have also read your Sharpe series.
First and foremost I would like to thank you for the entertainment & historical insights that you have provided me.
I feel a little foolish in that what actually prompted me to write you is an error I found in Sword of Kings. The version I am reading is an ebook purchased from Amazon.
By way of explanation, even after 11 books, I get confused with the similar character names and interrelationships. I make notes to help me keep track of who is who and I regularly refer back to them. As a result I happened to notice the following:
P.41 - ‘Æthelwulf!’ Eadith exclaimed and went towards him with open arms.
It should be ‘Ælswyth, not ‘Eadith’.
I apologise for perhaps appearing to be petty. I thought it a good excuse to write and thank you.
