Having just finished reading the 3rd and final book in the trilogy I can honestly say it has been a thrilling and incredible journey with Will who is the main character. I’ve never read a book more eagerly, let alone a trilogy! Anyone who’s ever read Pillars of the Earth and World Without End will so enjoy this book.
It gives such a fascinating insight into how life was lived in that time, how news was conveyed. The build up to battle scenes are just phenomenal and so vivid and so disturbing, the author superbly paints a picture of the unfolding tension. descriptions of tent colours and horns and drums sounding.
I love the way Robyn describes the clothing of the time, the stitching on cloaks and the fabrics.
The utter futility of all the bloodshed makes you weep.
It is a brilliant way to learn about history -
Reading these type of books of course, cause you to lose faith in humanity because peace is so untenable - people placing so much importance on the here and now and in the grand scheme of things all their desires are meaningless.
P.s I’m surprised to read so many references of scorching sun and heat in Scotland! Lots of cold weather was mentioned in the Acre section of the trilogy. Is the author sure she didn’t get the countries mixed up!

An engaging, well written and researched trilogy. I enjoyed it as I knew very little about this period of history.

This is a great yarn, full of twists, and historical facts. Three books is a long old READ, but worth the effort.

A book for all FM Buffs with an interesting insight into secret Masonic Preceptories during the Crusades. Highly recommended reading for one and all.
