✷ [BOOKS] ✫ The Bloody Crown By James Wilde ❁ – Golanvideoagency.info

The Bloody Crown This thrilling historical adventure is the 6th volume of the delightful and fascinating Hereward series by James Wilde.It s another book with wonderful storytelling by the author, and also is the book pictured with great battle actions within the city of Constantinople.All the characters within this gripping historical tale, whether real or fictional, come vividly to life from start to finish, and thus making this great book such a joy to read.The book has been historically very well researched, so far as possible of course, and most that is known from that period of history has been wisely used within this enjoyable read.The story is set once again in Constantinople, the Capitol of the Holy Roman Empire, but the time has moved on to the years of AD 1079 until 1081.The story itself is about the battle for the Crown within Constantinople, where three factions will do anything to seize the throne, and thus maim and kill anybody who stands in the way.Outside the Holy Roman Empire two armies are fighting it out with each other, the Normans and the Turks, for the riches of Constantinople, while at the same time inside there s also frictions between factions within the Capitol of the Empire, and it is in that complicated and dangerous situations that we find Hereward and his spear brothers.What will follow is a beautiful tale of courage, brutality, betrayal and death, before Hereward and his spear brothers have to make their final stand against all those ruthless enemies.Fully recommended, for this a fascinating tale, and by what the author himself indicates within the author s note, so this is for me a Fantastic Finale.But Hopefully Not The End NoWakeExcellent end to the tales of Hereward.Loved every minute.Now to Pendragon.Hope as good as these books Onwards. Another good story about Hereward and his spear brothers, the last one for a while it seems There s lots of intrigues, conspiracies and fighting and Hereward has to play dead for a while I m now looking forward to Pendragon and hope it is as good as the Hereward series. This easily the best of the second trilogy , not so much wandering about and characters popping up at random Possible spoiler alert I ve loved this series ever since the first book came out some six or seven years ago I tend to mostly read historical fiction nowadays and have all the prominent authors books Kane, Cornwell, Scarrow, Jackson, Fabbri etc and they re all very good, but for me very few of them have ever come close to a par with James Wilde s Hereward series I m normally up the bookseller s the day of publication when each year s instalment comes out and usually read it within a matter of days, but having read somewhere that this was to be the last in the series I couldn t bring myself to read it I couldn t bear to be parted from such great well rounded characters as Hereward, Alric the monk and Kraki the Viking, but all good things come to an end But without wanting to give away any spoilers I am delighted to read the author s notes at the end which state if the demand is there he may one day return and write another episode in the Hereward adventure So if you re a fan of this series and have enjoyed the other books you won t be disappointed by this instalment It may not have quite as much bloody action as its predecessors there is some the clever plot covering the political intrigue, back stabbing and plotting of those seeking power in the late Roman Empire,than makes up for it.A thumping good read and highly recommended. This is real game of thrones with so many families after the throne no one is safe,and in all the mix is hereward and his brothers must play one against the other Norman s in the West Turks in the East With a rogue solider we a blood axe with a liking with killing Turks has hereward in his eye set,so goes James Wilde best book to date just loved it And So The Bloody Battle For The Crown Of The Holy Roman Empire BeginsWithin The City Of Constantinople Itself, Three Venal Factions Will Go To Any Lengths Will, It Seems, Kill Any Who Might Stand In Their Way To Seize The Throne And Outside The City S Walls, Twin Powers Threaten A Siege That Will Crush The Once Mighty Empire Forever To The West, The Voracious Forces Of The Most Feared Norman Warlord Are Gathering While In The East, The Turkish Hordes Are Massing Theirs Is A Lust For Slaughter And In The Midst Of This Maelstrom Of Brutality And Betrayal, Hereward And His English Spear Brothers Prepare To Make What Could Be Their Final Stand
