The Bishop Must Die has started the process of the fall from power of Edward II and the hated DeSpenser it will be interesting now to see where the series goes, who survives, who falls. I can see that Jecks has cleverly designed the story lines in such a way that he can send his characters either way and there will be a number of twists and turns to come. Where the story goes after Edward II dies (Murdered? or anonymous exile as some histories contend?). It may turn to the eventual overthrow and death of Mortimer in 1330.
If you haven't read the backstory then please read the books before dismissing them. The whole series is excellent.Read more ›
I found some of the twists and turns a little difficult to follow, and some of the chapters were rather short, so by the time that I had remembered who the characters were, we moved on to another group.
To an extent I use books like this to expand my poor knowledge of history. For instance, I had heard of Eleanor of Aquitaine, but hadn't fully appreciated that she brought the Duchy of Aquitaine with her when she married Henry II and that land remained English for over 100 years.
Only four more books to go before I reach the last in the series (unless Mr Jecks writes another one) then I can read them all again!
