ReviewI always think when i pick up a book by James Heneage that i m about to mbark on an The Man Without a Face epic and as such need to slow down myxpectations wade through a slow burn of meticulous detail but ultimately come out the other I have read the trilogy prior to this book so may have a slightly different perspective to the many who have read it as a stand alone book I write this from the perspective of someone who was anticipating a seven Happy Easter, Mouse! (If You Give...) eight book series spanning the fall of the Byzantine Empire from 1395 to 1460 when Mistra fell to the Turks I believe that was the original intention of the authorIt was a good book and I understand why James Henneage might have decided to wrap up thevents of the Fall of Constantinople in a rather urgent manner Most likely he felt the prospect of writing another four books daunting for a topic he felt he could not fully commit himself toI really Gone (Gone, enjoyed the relatively slow burn and breadth of scope the prior trilogy paid to historicalvents Each of the three books focused on just a few years of vents between 2 and 7 so for the fourth book to gloss over 33 years rankled a bit with MeI Was Looking Forward was looking forward a pic series that would at least cover other major All Seated on the Ground events of thearly 15th Century astern Europe like the Hussite Wars and of what was happening in Hungary and Romania But I digressJames like the Hussite Wars and of what was happening in Hungary and Romania But I digressJames chosen to draw the series to it s conclusion arlier although there is potential for books in the series And for that decision he has done wellIt s a fairly intriguing story although predictable and rather cut copy involving complicated family ties and betrayals Wiring etctc Due to the huge time span of this novel he has had to rebuild a new "Generation Of Characters In The Space Of "of characters in the space of novel so the characters aren t particularly deep or nuance very much falling into the same personality of their forebears from the prior trilogy rather black and white heroes and villains with little grey in betweenI am a huge fan of this time period in this part of the world so welcome any attempt to popularise it and bring it to life via historical fiction It is a good book in it s own right however I feel that James is better at writing about history than he is at writing fiction The historical notes at the back are Against All Odds excellentA good book of fairly run of the mill familialstrangement political intrigue and heroic adventure that has done a decent job of covering 33 years of history in this Jingling Daddys Bells BDSM Menage exciting time periodI hope James continues the series but chooses to slow the pace to maybe just cover the next 7 years until 1460 in the next novel Luke Magoris has moved from Mistra to Venice to oversee the Magoris Bank but when he dies in mysterious circumstances his grandson Siward has to take over the ailing bank The profitable trading company has been left to Luke s missing grandson child of Giovanni and the beautiful Cleope but when it is discovered that he is actually one of the Sultan s chief Janissaries and that the Islamic forces are targeting Constantinople family honour and the soul of the Roman Empire all combineThis is the fourth in Heneage s series about the Varangian Guard and the decline and fall of the Roman Empire based in Constantinople Injoyed the third book in the series and wanted to read simply because the setting is unusual There are many historical novels set in Western Europe covering the 15th16th ce. Destiny inheritance the world shifting from The DOS east to west This is anpic novel set in an age of dramatic changeSiward scion of a great dynasty commands the Varangian Guard and has vowed to defend the Roman Empire to the las. Nturies but this is the first that I have read focused on Eastern Europe and war between the Turkish Empire and the remnants of the old Orthodox church This book has all the Against All Odds elects of a good action novel but with a hefty dose of politics and a little heavy handed romance Heneage is a strong story teller and whilst characters are lightly drawn there isnough to make it a deeper book than might otherwise be xpected A word of warning before I get into my flow this book is marketed as a potential stand alone novel but it will make much sense if you have read the previous three books in the Mistra Chronicles Rise Of Empires Series Rise of Empires series have not read these and conseuently found m Reading this made me think that I wanted to see it as a movie A Ridley Scott movie I so miss his pic historicals I need some fighting walls tumbling and cities taken it would work great for that Drums beating and ok Treasons, Stratagems, And Spoils enough blood thirst from me nowThe book is about two men two cousins on opposite sides of a nevernding battle Siward is a Varangian
