Logres is great.  I like the layout and the lack of duplicative text from previous books.  The maps are good and useful to the base campaign and elsewhere.  The included campaign was excellent and had a great balance of fighting, figuring and leveraging cultural factors that didn't seem forced.  

I appreciated how the Saxons and co were portrayed and how their cultural perogatives were shown as drivers for their aggression.  This was a great approach and the nuances shown made them very playable.  Having consumed several Viking and a couple Saxon themed RPGs or supplements over the years I feel justified in labeling this the best depiction of the Saxons ever.  The author did a great job of laying out the cultural bits and integrating them into play without beating the players over the head or making it clunky or contrived.

My only issues are perhaps editorial.  In the campaign there were a few places where the settlement names might've been switched or inconsistent.  This might sort itself out after I read through it a few more times.  Also I have not played out the mass combat rules but we're the Saxon forces under powered compared to the Llys spearmen?

Oh! Are there mass combat rules as well?
We play bouts of Dux Britanniarum so I've already got some figures... if they're the sort of rules that use figures.

And as others have said, the cover art on these is very nice.
