James Heneage Ú 5 Summary,
It would be unfair to call this bubblegum literature but it s not literary fiction either It deserves four stars because I rattled through it in five days and enjoyed the experience What could you want It succeeds at what it tries to do and lacks the pretension to be anything than it is which is an adventure story set in history Heneage stays true to the events surrounding the fall Have A Good Night, Volume 1 of Constantinople in 1453 while deftly mixing historical characters and fictionalnes Mehmet and Minotto come ut much worse than their historical Selves But The Need but the need villains makes this forgivable Some f the dialogue is a bit clunky at times with characters explaining to each ther things that they already know and n these occasions it s faintly reminiscent f the dreadful Mongoliad But it it s faintly reminiscent f the dreadful Mongoliad But it not enough to spoil the enjoyment Maps are provided which many readers will find invaluable but the character list has a major flaw in the the death dates are given for historical figures That s a big spoiler given that ne f them is a central character who Isabel the Queen: Life and Times only dies in the penultimate chapter A wordf 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 Fantastic Post Office 03 of Empires series I have not read these and conseuently found myself floundering at first Once I found my feet however I thought there was much to enjoy in this novel which takes us into rarel Yes this is a page turner and it was a really entertaining read It mixes historical facts and fictional characters really well However the story though fast paced and nevr gets bogged down with details is a little too convenient and somef the decisions and actions f the main characters were a little forced Also there are too many lines characters were a little forced Also there are too many lines are so unlikely to be uttered without the help f historical hindsight they could somehow spoil the fun These are supposed to be living in the middle f the fifteenth century as the Roman Empire was about to fall and they are talking with the knowledge f world history after Rome Sure these people were already looking at elsewhere Drawing the Human Head other than theld world Twin Block Functional Therapy: Applications in Dentofacial Orthopedics of Rome and the Turkstherwise people would have been defending Constantinople but exactly where Like today we talk about the waning influence DIY Projects for the Self-Sufficient Homeowner: 25 Ways to Build a Self-Reliant Lifestyle of the USA but do we have any concrete idea what will be happening in fiftyr a hundread years time For anyone with real knowledge f history this novel is a little too cheesy but for those who are not bothered by historical authenticity this is a sheer fun Luke Magoris has moved from Mistra to Venice to versee the Magoris Bank but when he dies in.
