Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

Bridge at War is set in 1946, immediately after the end of the Second World War. The story follows three young men (Tom, Alistair and Bram) who were comrades in the Army during the War. Bram gently introduces the world of Lyndesfarne to the others, and engineers their recruitment into the Guardians, one of the secretive organisations whose purpose is to protect the crossing to Lyndesfarne.

I was quite taken with this book ,! such ideas ! loved it :D Thanks


Gary Thornton

A nice Tolkien-esque story.


Daniel Redmon

Loved it. Brilliant concept and very entertaining. Wish Mr. Hopkins would write more.


Joanne

i really enjoyed this book. there are a few words missing so another fresh set of eyes proofreading would help but i would read the next one if there was one. thanks


John Spencer

Well written series. I really enjoyed it.


D.S.Walker

Good enough story but a bit pedestrian. Hopkins has touched on the Celtic legend of Fairy but failed to take it very far. A sequel could take off as long as he stays clear of the usual suspects; Dragons, Vampires, etc.


Phoghat

The formatting was terrible it was almost impossible to read.


barbhecknc

Enjoyed. A nice quick read. I hope he comes out with another. Would make a great series book.


james thomas

enjoyed book although a bit slow at times


Phoghat

I found the story interesting, however the formatting of the book is so bad I gave up after getting through about a third of the book


James J. Kennedy

Bridge at War is a fairly interesting read, but not up to H.P. Lovecraft's standard. the RedBankOyster


Brice

I enjoyed the story. Although it did not seem to lead anywere, and ended a little abrupt. I thought it was a good first part of a deeper story. Keep up the writing


Rose

Too much "telling" and not enough "showing". Very few action scenes in first 200 pages. Climactic scene very short. Not any surprises to the ending, at least what I could read of it. The last page or more (if there were more than 224 pages) were missing.


Russ

I thought it was a good start. I did notice the missed words. I still think that it will beworth the time to correct and looking forward to revised edition or next book. Thanks for the trip.

I read it, waited for this great framework to take me somewhere, but it didn't. and it is true the ending is missing, not just a bad ending but no ending, it never went anywhere, even though it could have been a geat book, it is instead a great first half of a book at best. Plus, the first half of the book took way too long to get you nowhere. If it was reworked it could be a great series, but as it is, it is a great big waste of time.


Linda

Apart from the lack of proof reading and mixed up chapters (confusing) I was enjoying this book until it abruptly ended on page 224 so I never did find out what happened and I really want to know!


lucy

This book kept me reading because I kept expecting a big climax somewhere in the body. Then, I expected, he was laying the groundwork in the first book to lead into the others, but that wasn't it. The story has great potential indeed. But,I kept expecting something to happen that never happened. I would say to Trevor, keep at it. If you want to use that rolling up a low hill down a shallow valley style,It can work, but you need a high hill and deep drop for the end. Make something big happen. This story has great potential.


sean

Really enjoyed the story, didn't think I would but glad I gave it a try. Seemed the author ran out of speed at the end and just ended it when he got fed up. other wise an enjoyable read.

I'd have to disagree with Pearce.. this book has it all, history, location, sci-fi, fantasy , mystery , drama and action. It was a quick fun read and a great escape that left me eager for more. I highly recommend this book as I get started on the rest of Mr. Hopkins books!

Beyond the very bad editing (numerous typos, misplaced words, etc.), the story goes no where. It's as if the author went on a vacation in Britain and decided to describe his surroundings as an excuse for a novel. The book is all background and no actual plot (at least up to page 127, where I gave up).


Trevor

Fantasy at its best! A great combination of historical setting and mysterious plots.
