Sometimes the confusion thinned a little, and there were faces in it; his mother’s face, and Blai’s, and Midir the Priest’s with its eyes like dark sunlight; and sometimes the face of Vortrix.

Sometimes the confusion thinned a little, and there were faces in it; his mother’s face, and Blai’s, and Midir the Priest’s with its eyes like dark sunlight; and sometimes the face of Vortrix knew that it could not really be so, because all those faces were of the Tribe, and something had come between him and the Tribe, between him and Vortrix-a kind of black gulf. He couldn’t remember what it was, and always when he tried to, the confusion came back and all the faces were lost to him again.

My son loved this book.

full of harsh beauty, strength and the fulfilment of the difficult rites of passage for a damaged young warrior. I found it very powerful and moving.

Set in Bronze Age Britain, Warrior Scarlet is the story of Drem, a boy with a crippled right arm, who, because of his disability, is
unlikely to become a warrior as he cannot hold a sword and a shield at the same time. However, with the help of Talore the Hunter, a one- handed man himself, and Vortrix, the brave, loyal, friendly son of the village chieftain, he becomes a skillful hunter and enters the boys' house where the eligible boys train for three years to become fighters and take the test that will decide if they will become men- they must kill a wolf!
One of Sutcliff's best books, Warrior Scarlet is a fun, engaging narrative, filled with suspense, some action, and plain old good writing.

If you are looking for a book which brings you back to a time when all was peaceful, when the ties of brotherhood were strong, when friends were made easily, and the world was not so complicated, this is the book. Drem, the young hero, has to undertake a journey to overcome his handicap to prove himself to his tribe. Throughout his journey, he has met three soulmates, one a hound, another a blood brother and the last, a loved girl.

A story about perserverance and ever-lasting friendship, this book has etched itself into my mind. But if you are one who does not enjoy books with predictable story lines and lovingly detailed descriptions, then this is not the book for you.

I first read Warrior Scarlet as a youngish teenager, knowing absolutely nothing about it, and was immediately captivated by it. It rates as one of the finest novels I have ever read, as a child or an adult. The writing is beautiful, poetic, and ultimately very moving. The novel gives a very clear picture of life in the Bronze Age, and is very visual in its language, and the Charles Keeping illustrations complement ithe text perfectly. I recommend this book to anyone who likes early historical fiction, whatever age they are - this book has stayed in my memory for many years, and is regularly re-read. Give it to an imaginative child, they won't be disappointed.

A charming book in it's own right, and certainly has a wonderful plot and storyline. The language does tend to get overdescriptive at times, and is a little slow-paced, but apart from that, it's worth a look.

I only bought this book because it was on my summer reading and it said that there were only 40 pages in it... I got it and it has 207 pages and the print is small
I was made to read this book in school, and found it impossibly dull and overly descriptive. The plot is terribly perdictable, and slow paced. I hated this book and definitely recommend against reading it
