The Iron King (The Accursed Kings, Book 1) by Maurice Druon
The Iron King is a worthy start to Druon's epic Accursed Kings series. A gripping story of the nature of politics, violence, and sex in the 1300's.

It is annoying that you have to be online for single player, and the game's combat can be very repetitive, and the game's characters are not interesting and cliche. However this game is still fun, and approachable to people who didn't play Diablo or Diablo 2.
So, flawed but ultimately still… Read more
