A story about power and intrigue, Kings, princes and a queen without love. Based on true events in France in 1314.
It took me a bit to get into the story due to the writing style which I found a bit dry in parts (which might stem from the fact that it was translated from French), but soon I was totally hooked. It was a bit hard to connect with the characters, as they all have something unlikable about them, but still I want to see what their fates will be. This is the first of seven novels and I definitely plan on continuing on with the series.
Ein super spannendes, lebendig erzähltes Buch, das für mich die Geschichte des mittelalterlichen Königreiches von Philip le Bel zu einer absolut fesselnden Lektüre gemacht hat. Ich werde in jedem Fall die Folgebände lesen!
I chose this book because I had just finished reading George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire, and the author himself recommended this series. The book was exciting as well as excellently written. Good for anyone who's interested in history and intrigue.
