Just an avid reader. Mostly SF/Fantasy, some hobbies, paranormal, urban fantasy and lighter, fluffier things.
The subtitle for this book is "A Valiant King's Struggle to Save His Country, His Dynasty and His Love."
And valiant he is. The author is setting forth a clearly heroic tale. Interesting times making potentially for a good story. I am feeling kinda force-fed what a valiant -- if naive -- young man he is. Author doesn't need to try quite so hard.
Overall, a decent tale of a little covered period of history that I would have liked much better if less sappy and slanted. And if more atmospheric of the period -- meaning some very modern viewpoints crept in, not that I had major issues with the history or historical details.
