A Column of Fire, by Ken Follett

“When a man is certain that he knows God’s will, and is resolved to do it regardless of the cost, he is the most dangerous person in the world.”

Historical Fiction

My Review

I could repeat precisely what I wrote in the first two novels of the Kingsbridge Trilogy. This book is just as good as those two, if not better.

The main difference is the amount of recorded history available from the 16th century. This is perhaps my favorite period of British history. It covers the era of Queen Elizabeth. Also known as the Virgin Queen. When she came to power, and how she ruled. The way he covers the Spanish Armada and their defeat is intriguing.

You don't have to read the first two in this series before this one, but I still recommend it only because they are great reads. Here are my reviews of each. The Pillars of the Earth World Without End
