Review

"[Sharon Kay] Penman does a remarkable job of depicting passionate, dramatic characters and the perilous times in which they live. For those who like their historical fiction as complex and tightly woven as a medieval tapestry, this book cannot fail to please."--Library Journal, starred review

"Teeming with characters and authentic period detail, the novel is part splendid pageant and part history lecture."--Booklist

"Penman writes about the medieval world and its people with vigor, compassion and clarity."--San Francisco Chronicle

"A story so immediate and real that you'll feel like you've lived it."--Historical Novels Review

From the Back Cover

THE LONG AWAITED FINAL VOLUME IN THE HENRY II AND ELEANOR OF AQUITAINE TRILOGY

In this gripping tale of passion, politics and conflict, King Henry II finds himself brutally betrayed by his wife Eleanor and three eldest sons when they enter into a rebellion against him. Aligning themselves with Henry's most bitter enemy, King Louis of France, their treacherous actions will have devastating consequences as they bring about the downfall of a brilliant man and a powerful empire.

In Devil's Brood, the compelling story of Henry and Eleanor's once great love affair is explored in an uniquely vivid way. What twists of fate turn love to hatred? What points of principle and ambition cause these two icons to struggle for power, leaving their family tragically divided and their turbulent marriage finished in all but name?

Sharon Penman's glorious trilogy reaches its spellbinding conclusion.

Praise for Sharon Penman:

'Bloody and violent deaths, tearful betrayals by close relatives, dizzying shifts of power... very convincing' The Times

''She manages to illuminate the alien shadowland of the Middle Ages and populate it with vital characters whose politics and passions are as vivid as our own' San Francisco Chronicle

'A new Penman novel is always cause for celebration' The Historical Novels Review
