Lee brings a blockbuster sensibility to this slice of 12th-century Levant, dropping his man in the mountains of the Holy Land and letting him go to work, swinging swords, wooing princesses, toadying to emperors and smearing enemies in honey before chaining them to battlements ... Reynald was a crusader on steroids: audacious, adventurous and violent. He earned his reputation, and like him or loathe him, his story is worth retellingDan Jones
Like Reynald's career, Lee's book is packed with enjoyably full-blooded episodes and details... God's Wolf is an often refreshing... and always entertaining book.Minoo Dinshaw
A swashbuckling yet scholarly biography of the infamous 12th-century crusader Reynald de Chatillon.Sebastian Shakespeare
God's Wolf is well written, well informed, and exciting; in fact, it hooked me in straightaway... It is by far the liveliest work I've read on the subject

God's Wolf is enormously readable. It is written in a very lively style and with vigour and pace... This is a very exciting book, both scholarly and at the same time accessible to a wider readership.
