Defy a King, 27 July 2010
I have read all of Elizabeth Chadwick's other titles and I wasn't disappointed in To Defy a King. Some of the characters are revisited that took the headlines in her books about William Marshall and I found that well done. The character writing and historical detail are excellent as always and reinforced my belief that King John was a nasty piece of work! It was interesting to read about the behind the scene wranglings and as always, well done and well researched. Ms Chadwick always achieves to bring her characters to life and make you beleive that you are looking in on their experiences as living breathing people. You could read this book on its own, but the readers who have read the Greatest Knight and the Scarlet Lion will probably have a bit of a head start on an in sight to some of the characters. A great read and I can't wait for the next book. Well done Elizabeth Chadwick.
