A Burnable Book

We rated this book:


Starting A Burnable Book with an indexed complete cast of characters immediately set this book apart from many other historical fiction works giving it a nostalgic antiquity feel as if stepping back into the Fourteenth century for a ride of your life. When an ancient book, telling of the future demise of King Richard II as well as the past twelve Kings, is found to be in the wrong hands, one man, a mere poet, will do everything he can to change the fate of England and the death of a King.

Brilliantly written; from page one I was immediately swept into the chaos of this prophecy shrouded with secrecy, murder, betrayal, and one’s own son. Author Bruce Holsinger molds characters bleeding with personality causing you to vehemently hate some, and deeply sympathize with others. The story vividly comes to life with a balance of world building, characters, and an intriguing storyline, while immediately bringing the likes of Philippa Gregory and Dan Brown to mind. If your reading preferences are in mystery or historical fiction, then this is a book you will undeniably want to pick up and add to your collection.
