The Iron King is an outstanding example of haunting historical fiction, the first of seven novels that this reviewer is now eager to appreciate. The easy transition from light and dark topics of history and human nature arranged with solid dramatization and historical figures created an unexpected find for this reviewer. With all the shadowy depths of political intrigue, corresponding court and the turmoil that eventually devoured those figures of the 14th century, The Iron King had me reading long into the night. The Iron King is a fast paced saga that is sure to entertain as well as enlighten readers on the brutal savagery and corrupt practices conducted during Europe in the 14th century.


A warning to the eager reader, The Iron King is light on character building and focuses more on: plot, drama, successions of revenge, murder, graphic torture and its political "necessity". Abandon all notions on finding a fluffy read here, Mr. Druon has left a dramatic stamp on the historical fiction genre that will stay with the reader days after finishing.

What.....?

Why would i want to buy this book when i have absolutly nothing about it? Since it s this cheap and even the overview wont say anything about it, the book must be horrible.
