    One thought on “Duke”

    1. If you count yourself a fan of historical fiction at all, then it would be madness for you not to get your hands on this mega read.Duke is book #2 in The Leopards of Normany trilogy by David Churchill. My sincere thanks to Bookbridgr, Headline Publishing and David Churchill for providing me a copy of Book #1, Devil for a review last year. To my utter delight and surprise Headline Publishing followed up by also sending me review copy of Duke. How awesome is that? Now, I must apologize I haven’t [...]

    2. Review for the Leopards of Normandy: Duke: Leopards of Normandy 2 (Leopards of Normandy #2) - Author David ChurchillI enjoyed this book so much, the first one in the series was an excellent introduction to this author and number two in the series had me totally hooked from page one.It is one those books where you wake up in the middle of the night with book (or in my case Kindle laying across your body because of not being able to put it down and reading until sleep took over.This is the second [...]

    3. The book is about: the history of William the conqueror, the second part of a trilogy covering William's struggle as a young duke.I liked: as in the first part the portrayal of links between the different reigning families and the the conspiracies between the different noble families all related to each other, the tension created by the guards and conspiracies around the young duke and the way in which William finally gets to establish his own supremacy.I didn't like: the end was less of a surpr [...]

    4. A good historical book based on the life of William of Normandy before he conquered England in 1066

    5. The Leopards of Normandy: Duke is the second book in David Churchill’s series about the legendary William the Conqueror. It picks up the story started in Devil at a point where young Duke William is nine and will take us all the way to William’s taking a bride at twenty-three. The book doesn’t just focus on William and his journey from boy to man, but we also learn about events in England, which set up the circumstances that will allow William to come and claim its throne in 1066.As with D [...]

    6. Duke, by David Churchill, is the second book in The Leopards of Normandy trilogy. This series tells a fictionalised version of the story of William, Duke of Normandy, who is remembered as The Conqueror. The first book in the series was Devil, which I reviewed here.The story opens with the reading of Archbishop Robert of Rouen’s will in which he tried to ensure that nine year old William, the boy Duke, would have loyal advisors and guardians to care for him until he came of age. Despite the man [...]

    7. He came, he fought and he conquered and that's really all I knew about William the first of England, the King who built the Tower of London with stone from his native Normandy. I didn't know anything about his life before the conquest of England and what's been so fascinating about reading David Churchill's excellent trilogy, so far, is that it has started to flesh out William, to give him personality and purpose, and in this second book in the trilogy, which spans the years between 1039 to 1051 [...]

    8. After the death of his father, young William is named Duke of Normandy but he has a group of nobles who are acting as protectors until he achieves adulthood. Ralph de Gace is a junior member of the council until he manages to kill off his elders but how will he cope as William grows up? In England Harold Harefoot is dead and his half-brother Edward has come to claim the throne but the earls are politicking to control the throne. As William grows into a strong young man he sows the seeds of his o [...]

    9. Another cracking read, the second book in the trilogy about William the Conqueror. I had forgotten how good the first instalment in the series was. I very quickly was totally engrossed in this well written and engaging piece of historical fiction. My knowledge of the characters from this period of history has been greatly improved by this fictional account. Roll on next year for the final part of this excellent trilogy.

    10. I really must purchase the first book of The Leopards of Normandy' trilogy! Historical fiction has always been one of my favourite genres and was thrilled when I discovered that I was one of the winners in the First Reads giveaway. I avoid writing what the story is about for fear of spoiling for others, but I do highly recommend to all who enjoy this period in history.
