This is the second volume in "The Pagans" trilogy, after The Stone Arrow. If possible, I'd recommend reading The Stone Arrow first -- the stories stand alone, but the first novel serves as a good introduction to the British neolithic civilization and the settlements in the area.
I'm not an authority on the subject, but the story rang true for me. It is a novel of casual violence, but the author doesn't dwell on the details. There are no real "heroes" in this story.
The first novel in the series, The Stone Arrow, is very much Tagart's story. Tagart is present in The Flint Lord, but his character seemed more superficial to me, and less complex.
I liked The Stone Arrow a little better, but I still recommend this book.
(I got The Stone Arrow at Barnes & Noble, so I can't review it here.)

This excellent sequel to "The Stone Arrow" continues the story of Tagart, with the indigenous nomad tribes pitted against the ruthless Gehan invaders.
