Violent times breed violent men. In the third decade of the Fourteenth Century even kings can be murdered without consequences. The killers of kings rule in their stead, sleep with their queens, and suck the kingdom dry. Honourable men are driven into outlawry. Eustace Folville is an honourable man - but he ambushes and kills an Exchequer Baron. In the forests and the wastes an alternative outlaw society flourishes, with thugs and schemers and captains and even kings. James Cotterell is King of Peak, leader of the Savage Company. The Sheriff is powerless against such men. But there are men with greater power. The outcome, inevitably, is bloody. "The writer breaks all the rules, but I couldn't put Savage Company down. It is pacey and has some wonderful descriptions, but it is not for the fainthearted. The language is often crude and the story bloody in parts, but they were crude and bloody times. The style of writing is unique. There were words that I didn’t know the (dictionary) meaning of, but the writing is so good I understood what each meant. When the characters, rough and uncouth – but totally believable – tell their accounts they self-justify. They were violent times, which Roger Wood has captured brilliantly." Review by author Madalyn Morgan.
