The battle scenes are spectacular and extremely well written; I was able to follow the action and I could really feel the pain and frustration of the Yorkist side. There are times when I had to suspend my disbelief—Ned and Will were almost superhuman in their killing abilities and recovery from near-fatal traumas—but in the spirit of heroic fiction I went along with the ride. As for the women, I have to say there were just too many beatings and rapes and tortures for my stomach to take. All the major female characters were punching bags; even an Abbess gets into the act and beats up Ned’s sister. It was relentless. However, this was a violent age and maybe villains like Radcliffe really could have gotten away with his transgressions. I think more attention to the warfare and less attention to the abductions might have made a stronger novel. But I will say that it moved along well and there were times I couldn’t put it down.
I think what kept my attention were the underlying human stories, but I feel like they were simply abandoned at the end. And, although I can gather why the introduction of some characters may have made writing easier, I was sorely disappointed that their stories were written out so abruptly.
I gave four stars because it did hold my attention and kept me up late some nights. However, I feel much more restless for answers than I do for the typical book. I feel like the ending was put together is a rush with the goal of just it done
Many of the historical fiction novels that I have read over the years are more geared towards a female reader, and put a lot of focus on the character’s romance. “Feud” has the element of romance in it, but I think the story line, which is packed full of action and descriptive battle scenes, will be of more interest to a male reader. Birks has a gift when it comes to describing the battle scenes, and is able to put the reader right in the battle with the characters.
I enjoyed reading “Feud”, but at times the number of battles and general action were a little much for me, but that’s just my taste. Also, as a reader you need to have a little background knowledge of the War of the Roses, or there’s a good chance you’ll be a little lost. However, I definitely recommend this novel to historical fiction lovers, especially those who enjoy reading about the War of Roses.
