review The Bloody Crown 103

characters The Bloody Crown

And so the bloody battle for the crown of the Holy Roman Empire beginsWithin the city of Constantinople itself three venal factions will go to any lengths will it seems kill any who might stand in their way to seize the. This just might be the final Hereward The jacket blurb does indeed describe it as the dramatic final chapter though at the end Mr James does than hint if the wind is in the right direction he may return to Hereward at some time in the future I think the time is right to leave Hereward in Constantinople He s run his course for now and this is a fine send off if it be that It s a story full of action full of Hereward and others s last moment interventions and piles on the excitement almost non stop Almost because I can really do without the convoluted back stabbing two faced politiking that Hist Fic authors always entangle their stories of post Roman empire Constantinople with I m not saying it didn t happen but a couple of lines would be enough for meus to get the picture All that sort of stuff has been trotted out so many times you should register with an author that you ve read it all before you know how it was so they and you can skip it this time out Especially as this is supposed to be a tale of Hereward and his warriors And saying that it s a shame there hasn t been time to go into the minor characters The ones Hereward brought with him and have been with him through thick and thin they sound an intriguing bunch and lose out on page space with all the various Constantinople Houses trying to second guess each other However there is mileage to be wrung out of Hereward as the antidote to all that poison A simple warrior seeing to the heart of the problem and doing something about it If I were to draw a parallel with other books I ve read plenty of recently I d have to mention Vince Flynn s Mitch Rapp character He is as above a simple man someone who sees where the problem is and gets things done Other parallels are of course with the politicians in Vince Flynn the factions here Really goes to show that nothing changes but the genreMy book blog Speesh ReadsSpeesh Reads Facebook Page
