The Fragility of the Norman Conquest,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Splintered Kingdom (The Conquest) (Kindle Edition)
This second book in which I hope will be a series, follows on with the same main characters as the first, "Sworn Sword" More complex than the first book it starts slowly then becomes complex with the uncertainty of the actions of the leaders of different factions. Once the action starts it is fairly continuous, and uncertain because the leaders are not exactly team players. Although the book is fiction, the author seems to have done his research and exposed how fragile the Norman hold on England was following the conquest. This is something that I never learned in my History class - the conquest seeming to be a steam-roller event. So this to me was not only a good novel but an eduction as well. Well worth reading but read the first book first to set the scene.
