THE GREY MAN
Reviewed by Author Roy Murry
Mr. Crockett has put together an epic novel about the upbringing of a Scottish knight. The story sometimes flows in a poetic mode which I found entertaining. The length of it became troublesome for me.
I like books that get to the point fast to a thrilling conclusion. Although the prose of The Grey Man was colorful, the story was predictable - good overcomes evil with detours into grey areas, no pun intended.
There were a few nail-biting moments, but they were hard to discern because it was written in an old Scottish language. However, when I reread many sentences, in a comical sense, the incidents became apparent to me.
All in all, the chronicles of this young man's adventure from Squire to Knight in a historical setting was an educational time well spent. Other shorter stories are included for just $.99 of an interesting read.
