Bloody. If your taste in historical fiction tends to favor bloody battles, Bernard Cornwell’s 1356 is the novel for you. Packed with lively action, Cornwell relates the Battle of Poitiers, in which the outnumbered English overcame the French army and captured both the city and the king. If you have an appetite for more than 400 pages of action-packed violence, be sure to read this one.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
