I absolutely enjoyed it. A complete immersion in the Middle Ages. To be read by all lovers of historical Novel
A friend had recommended this historical novel to me. In spite of my reluctance, I started reading it and from the very first pages, I was taken by the story. I didn’t give up reading until very late at night.
Reading resumed very quickly the next day!
In summary, very good book, well documented .
I recommend it!
a book a fantastic story, never the slightest lassitude, you always want to know the rest bravo, I loved it.
I enjoyed the story and the intrigue with characters that you don’t lose along the way, easy to follow, the style is pleasant to read with a modern vocabulary.
I will quickly dive a few centuries into your second book.
It dies in turns without bothering, that’s the lot of the time, the solutions are radical. After a few thousand deaths, love triumphs, all’s well that ends well. This is not the history of France taught at school, although Louis XI didn’t have a very good reputation with his little cages, it was just a detail. A novel led drum beating, action after action, no time to get bored, better than our current films despite their special effects which make us feel so jaded when abused. Virile and warlike, this book should not please our ladies despite the title that evokes something else than this royal machination. Long live the King!
read in a few hours, we would like a sequel or a novel of the same kind.
I somewhat dislike the story about Joan of Arc. Where is the truth? I prefer the official version.
confused work, with dubious historical verisimilitude, a style of writing too “current” which confuses and prevents to be at one with the epoch.
Diving into the Middle Ages, this novel where the plot mixes both battle and human history is worth every movie with special effects!
