Well known part of history with a few additional characters and a storyline without any real surprises or turns.

I've loved all three books in this series and this one is the best yet. A great story, brilliantly told. Audiobook gold !

Firstly I am going to start by saying that this is a well written, well crafted Histofiction novel. I should also point out that the previous two Kingsbridge novels would always make my top ten list of favourites.
The issue I had with this book is that whilst the previous books were rooted deeply in Kingsbridge this one just seems to use it as a point of reference. The previous novels were as much about the growth and development of the settlement into a town as they were about the development of the main characters.This book aims to bring to life the much wider issues and events taking place during the time that the novel is set. By doing so it makes Kingsbridge into such an insignificant part that sadly for me this became just another (very good) histofiction book but not a Kingsbridge novel.

Follett has done it again. A true master story teller with wonderful fictional characters woven into the lives of historic characters and epic events in history. Fabulous!

Ken Follet has produced another masterpiece where real historical figures and events are interwoven so well I am left asking what was really real and what was the fiction. This third book also carries the stories from both of the first two books through this hostory/fiction tapestry.
This third book also came out of nowhere. After the first book I needed to know what happened next which the second book delivered. After the second I also wanted more but didn't know how the author could do it ...it was a long time but he did and it was good fortune to come across it. Surely though, even a master like Ken Follet can't take this further? Historical fiction has suited you well though Ken, perhaps you could apply your talent to a new book series ?
