Got this book, and the two preceding books, free from Amazon unlimited and I think they were overpriced. I'm a little embarrassed at having spent my time on these.

Now, don't get me wrong, the stories had their moments. I cared about the characters. The pace wasn't bad. But the writing was infuriating. My God, can't this guy get a professional editor? At one point, I started counting pages with cliches and ended up counting pages without cliches, because the latter was infinitely easier. I've won

Avery good historical novel set in the mid 17th century, full of intrigue, plots and counter-plots . I did have to concentrate reading this book but that meant I was fully focused and enjoyed it more.

The best yet!

I said it before...this series should be made into a movie series. It's filled with intrigue, adventure and romance set in 1642 England and France during the political upheaval of the English regent. The characters are wonderfully described and come to life by the skill if this creative author. Love the use of historical events to form a very interesting and captivating plot. A fun read!

This is a Goodreads win review. This very good book is set in 1643 France has a new Prime Minister and he is an evil person. King Charles needs to get of London because his situation is bad and the government in in trouble. But the Prime Minister wants to get The Queen who was a princess in France. The whole book deals with the royal court, politics, battles, love and war and the struggle between Prostestants and Catholics. I enjoyed this book.

Born and educated in Europe, Michael has always been intrigued by the historical setting and the fact that what makes us human was as true in the 17th century as it is now.

He has been reading and writing about history for longer than he cares to recall...
