Unlike game of thrones, this series waits to kill off a favorite character until book six. This series has remained strong throughout. Many times you find yourself thinking, did that really happen? You google it, and of course it did.
Diego
Este libro debería ser considerado el desenlace de esta saga. Todos los personajes que son introducidos en El Rey de Hierro mueren a lo largo de los títulos de esta serie, y en especial, este narra el desenlace de Roberto III de Artois, quien, con su intervención a lo largo de la saga, provoca el embrollo dinástico que llevó a la Guerra de los Cien años. Harto recomendable si les gusta la historia medieval.

The infamous curse of the Templar Grandmaster, Jacque de Molay cursed the line of Capetin Kings at his burning, has come true. Charles IV is dead. The powerful Count Robert of Artois maneuvers to place his cousin, Philippe of Valois onto the throne. Along the way, due to his previous conflict with Lady Mahaut over Artois, he manages to implicate himself in an entire mess of forgery, bribery and perjury over his historical claim to Artois.

As this mess is happening in France, England has a new, yo

Para mi gusto el mejor aunque me falta el último, pero aquí pasa de todo y nos comenzamos a despedir de nuestros personajes, no me imagino que vendrá en el 7º, pero ya estoy extrañando esta gran saga!!

J'ai passé un bon moment mais comme pour le tome précédent, je n'ai pas aimé autant que le début de la série... Par ailleurs, on a une vraie fin au terme de cet opus donc je me demande de quoi fait être fait le dernier volume de la série...

The demise book, as in many of the major players from the previous books find their end here. And it did not come peacefully in bed.

La sexta entrega de Los Reyes Malditos me atrapó y lo disfruté muchísimo. En este volumen, Druon nuevamente nos presenta muchísimos personajes y sin embargo, uno se engancha con cada una de las historias de los actores de las cortes francesas e inglesas. Para no poner spoilers, sólo diré que me dio mucho gusto la muerte de varios personajes nefastos y enfermos de poder (¡lo siento!) y admiro la forma en que el autor profundiza en el personaje de Roberto de Artois que, en mi opinión, se lleva el ...more

Y la saga sigue y no se pierde el interés. Cómo Druon logra manternos enganchados después de 6 tomos, es una maravilla. En este libro le decimos adiós a dos de los personajes más increíbles de la historia: Roberto y Mahaut. Ambos ambiciosos, poderosos, imbatibles, y que mueren víctimas de sus mismas maquinaciones, una envenenada por la asesina que ella entrenó, y el otro herido en la guerra que él ayudó a crear. Mientras tanto, la historia de Europa se escribe, ahora a ambos lados del Canal de l ...more

All I can say about this book is that it is the best in the entire series. Compared to all the other novels, you can say that all the intrigue, all the treachery, all the mystery of the series was put into this one novel. Not to say that the fact that the action now takes places in France, England and Italy increases that feeling of global consequences generated by the actions of the protagonists. This book has moments that make you scratch your head, moments that fill you with joy and moments t ...more

No se que mas decir de esta magnifica saga! me encanta! me encanta la historia, como esta narrada! me duele terminarla.
Augusto Bernardi
This was another excellent historical fiction which actually spans over a very long period of time. This could have easily been the last book of the series to me at least because (SPOILER ALERT) the rest of the characters from all the previous books die off in this one. This book as well raises the steaks to an international level as opposed to domestic issues in the french or English court. As per usual this one was quite tragic. I would have liked to have had more scenes with Guccio and Tolome ...more

Esta serie me gusta mucho, para mí es siempre ir a la fija. El autor cuenta de manera my amena todos los eventos principales de la monarquía francesa desde Felipe El Hermoso, hasta el último varón de su descendencia, todos los cuales fueron malditos desde la hoguera por el templario Jacques de Molay.

Esta es una de esas ocasiones en que parece increíble que todo esto haya ocurrido en la vida real. Aunque es complicado saber dónde está la línea entre lo que inventó el autor y lo que es historia, l

Recommends it for: fanáticos de novelas históricas
Aunque la saga continúa en un séptimo tomo, se puede sentir que el autor deseaba terminarlo aquí. Está narrado y estructurado como un desenlace a la vida y las aventuras de los personajes que construyó desde el primer volumen. Las consecuencias de las intrigas y los planes que urdieron a lo largo de cientos de páginas los alcanzan. Y no todos los planes terminan como habrían esperado. Además, se explica paso a paso cómo se gesta la conocida Guerra de Cien Años.

Conceived as the end of the series (a seventh book of sorts would come seventeen years later, but this was certainly intended as the ending when it was written), “The Lily and the Lion” brings very definitive conclusions to all the surviving principal characters of the series, and the titular premise of the series itself. It has a sense of focus and purpose some of the earlier books lacked, and Druon feels very much in control as he brings everything to a close.

Like many other speculative fiction readers, it's thanks to George R. R. Martin that I discovered the excellent The Accursed Kings by French author Maurice Druon. As the main inspiration for A Song of Ice and Fire, I was eager to give this series a shot. The first two volumes were very good, but the third installment failed to live up to the expectations generated by its predecessors. The Royal Succession was a return to form for the author and I was looking forward to see if the fifth book woul ...more
Serrano Nouaille
Un colofón glorioso para una gran saga. Los Reyes Malditos de Maurice Druon pueden ser la obra definitiva sobre el final de la dinastía de los Capetos y los inicios de la Guerra de los Cien Años. Por sus páginas pasan templarios, brujas, caballeros corteses al estilo artúrico y nobles maquiavélicos ávidos de poder. Empieza con un buen ritmo, pero el tercer y cuarto libro frenan un poco la acción. Resulta que sólo estaban preparándose las piezas en el tablero para que en el sexto todo termine con ...more

So, this is the last of the series and what a great series it was. The first book sets up the long tale with the cruel destruction of the Templars by Phillip the Fair, the Iron King, and the curse spewed out by the Templar Grand Master as he died at the stake in flames. Each story line is more lurid than the next with plots and schemes all the way from murder and witchcraft, to betrayal, lies and theft. All this in the context of a greedy struggle for power driven by pride. The books are histori ...more

I have an English translation of this one (from a recycled books place). A wonderful storyteller, very well researched. Gripping, often funny and spinechilling by turns, paints a flesh and blood picture of the middle ages. characters jump off the page and are hard to forget! More please...am now hunting for the rest of the books in the Accursed Kings series.

Roberto de Artois es el gran protagonista de esta serie tal y como lo dice el autor.

Para mí esta saga termina aquí, no sólo porque la descendencia de Felipe el Hermoso termina de desparecer, si no por el párrafo final del autor.

La serie ha estado increíble. La realidad, nuevamente, ha sobrepasado la ficción.

Una excelente saga para conocer la historia medieval de Francia y sobre las dinastías de los Capeto y los Valois. No es un pesado libro de historia, sino que es fácil de leer y te pierdes entre sus páginas. Me encantó esta saga, Maurice Druon es un maestro de la ficción histórica.
