There is good battle action in this novel. There is good dialogue and descriptions and the characters are believable. One can get a good idea of the way that life was in the early 1300s in the regions of Switzerland and Austria. I am more familiar with English medieval history. It was a bit hard for me to grasp the different regions and politics involved. Still, it was an interesting novel. I was disappointed that the book ended as only the first part of the story, the rest to continue in the next novel in the series.
This story kept my attention because it contains truly evil people who hold others in contempt. And good people, although flawed, who strive heroically against overwhelming odds to obtain justice for themselves and others and to preserve their very lives. It's always nice to have a, relatively, happy ending.
I think the basics of this tale is very closely related to people and events happening in our lives today.
Well written, good characters and a strong, believable setting make this a great all-round novel. Highly recommended.
