Editorial Reviews


"When I was young and powerless, they saw fit to manipulate Parliament to achieve their selfish ends. Those days are over. It's my turn, now. I mean to bring the Crown back to the splendor and magnificence it possessed in the days of Edward I--when the Crown ruled Parliament, not the other way around..."

They had demanded pardons, and he had given them for there had been no other choice. But things were different now. The son of Edward, The Black Prince, would see justice served. Richard II would have his revenge, and there was nothing anyone could do to stop it.

At least, Richard II had thought there was no one to stand in his way. But the Wheel of Fortune was forever turning, and fate was not done with Richard yet...

From the death of Queen Anne to the utter despair of a vanquished king, The King's Retribution: Book Two of The Plantagenet Legacy by Mercedes Rochelle is the story of the tyranny of Richard II and his subsequent fall from grace...

As Richard loses control over his country and his own destiny, Rochelle presents her readers with a despairing king. Richard's desperate attempts to hold onto his honour and dignity despite Henry's efforts to humiliate him was masterfully drawn. One could only feel sympathy for this dejected King as he is betrayed by almost everyone around him. And yet, with quiet dignity, Richard endures the hecklers on the streets as he is ushered into a world of uncertainty and despair.

Rochelle presents two very different sides to Richard -- the paranoid statesman whose own personal bodyguard, the Chester Archers, causes disquiet and concern, but also Rochelle depicts a devoted husband. I thought Rochelle's depiction of Richard II was utterly sublime, and his desperation really drove this story forward and made it unputdownable.

The King's Retribution: Book Two of The Plantagenet Legacy is a richly detailed and emotionally-charged tale. There is a strong sense of time and place in Rochelle's writing and an authenticity to the historical detail. The hours of research that has so obviously gone into this book is staggering, but the end result is a novel that is as enthralling as it is poignantly beautiful.

If you are looking for a new historical series about a king who unfortunately has been much maligned by history, then look no further than The Plantagenet Legacy by Mercedes Rochelle.

I Highly Recommend. - Mary Anne Yarde, The Coffee Pot Book Club

From the Back Cover

Mercedes Rochelle knows how to convey the emotion behind the political andpersonal mayhem in the latter years of Richard II's reign. Withoutstorytellers like Rochelle we can find it hard to imagine not only whatreally went on at this time but how this may have felt for thoseinvolved. What I particularly like is the way Rochelle slows the pace of the narrative towards the end in order to capture the mental andemotional turmoil for Richard during the last few day's of his reign.Really skilfully done. I heartily recommend this, along with itscompanion, book 1 of the series; and I can't wait to see how Rochellehandles Henry IV in the sequel.
