Manson is very idealistic and principled at the start of his career. One can sympathise with his refusal to issue sick certificates to miners who are quite fit to work, with his run-in with the district nurse and her antiquated remedies which do more harm than good and his desire to overcome resistance to vaccination but when it comes to showing up another doctor for mis-diagnosis and to reviving a stillborn baby that others have given up on he comes across as rather sanctimonious.

It is when Manson sets up in private practice in London that Cronin unleashes the full force of his attack. Manson is gradually seduced by the idea of material success and resorts to the same stock remedies, pointless operations and endorsing commercial products which have no medical benefit as so many other doctors did.

The Times of India. Medicine has come a long way, some of the diagnoses and therapies described in the novel sound amazingly ancient.

It consists of three major settlements, many small villages, at least one ruin, and two primary sources of conflict: The Hunted Lands to the northwest of The Palisade, and the Endalaus Forest, to the north and east of Audreyn's Wall.
