At the beginning I thought, this book is just going to be ok. But as I kept reading, I found that I really enjoyed the book. Elizabeth Chadwick is definitely tops in her field when it comes to writing about Medieval times. By the time I finished the book, I immediately purchased the second book in the series and began that book.

- Compute

Good story - well researched - starts slow

Pros - good historical background, interesting characters.
Cons - narrator's rendition of John's first wife is pretty awful and grating. Thankfully she is not major character throughout the entire book

This book starts very slow but once it gets going it is an enjoyable listen
