Epic and awesome; starts with Bayazid beheading the knights caught at Nicopole in 1396 who did not have the money to ransom themselves, while the richer ones are shamed into watching; and it goes for almost 700 awesome pages of the next 57 years of the Byzantine emperors traveling and sending embassies to Western Europe to no avail; we meet all the luminaries of the day from the kings of England and France to the German Emperors to the Italian leaders; this part is unmatched in any historical fi...more
A fascinating book with a lot of insights on that period. I liked less the high degree of detailed used, but overall a good reading. No matter the decade men will do anything for power.

Epic but at times overly descriptive for noninteresting facts. Very good mix of history and fiction, wonderfully depicted Constantinople, well documented with a touch of spice. Extremely engaging beginning. Have patience afterwards, lots if possible.

One of the best book I ever read
