Book Description

The year is 1658 AD. France has been torn by war and civil unrest for over a generation. The young king, Louis the XIV, rules the country in name, but his chief minister, Cardinal Mazarin holds the true power behind the throne and has kept conspiring nobles in check.

Denys, an orphaned peasant boy with a mysterious past, trains in the forests of northern France with hopes of becoming the country’s best swordsman. King Louis observes Denys training after a chance encounter and takes note of his immense talent and character.

Three years later, Cardinal Mazarin has passed away and Louis must rule on his own. But with Mazarin gone, a league of nobles stirs and conspires to overthrow the king. Unable to risk open war with the conspirators, the young king calls upon the swordsman he met three years before to uncover the plot and bring the conspirators to justice…

This adventure novel is based on fictional events set in 17th century France and is suitable for both teens and adults.

Poor Story line, no depth to any of the characters...should be listed in the children's section. Took less than 1 hour to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read 21 Mar. 2014

I enjoyed this book a bit far fetched in certain areas, but, I am reading a story and it gives a lot of factual details with the story mingled in with it. Thoroughly enjoyable for anyone not wanting explicit historical, medical and educational facts. I certainly recommend it and look forward to more books by Adam Nichols

2.0 out of 5 stars Not even mediocre 5 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another example of "bandwagon-writing" : given that historical fiction is highly popular, I'd better write some, too. Let's not worry about the simplest rules of grammar, of sentence construction and, above all, let's not tire the Editor (if any) out by requiring him actually to read the wretched book.
Another potentially good story wasted on an intellectually impoverished author.
Critique by Philip Maton.
