"International bestselling author Ken Follett has enthralled millions of readers with The Pillars of the Earth and World Without End, two stories of the Middle Ages set in the fictional city of Kingsbridge. The saga now continues with Follett's magnificent new epic, A Column of Fire. In 1558, the ancient stones of Kingsbridge Cathedral look down on a city torn apart by religious conflict. As power in England shifts precariously between Catholics and Protestants, royalty and commoners clash, testing friendship, loyalty, and love. Ned Willard wants nothing more than to marry Margery Fitzgerald. But when the lovers find themselves on opposing sides of the religious conflict dividing the country, Ned goes to work for Princess Elizabeth. When she becomes queen, all Europe turns against England. The shrewd, determined young monarch sets up the country's first secret service to give her early warning of assassination plots, rebellions, and invasion plans. Over a turbulent half century, the love between Ned and Margery seems doomed as extremism sparks violence from Edinburgh to Geneva. Elizabeth clings to her throne and her principles, protected by a small, dedicated group of resourceful spies and courageous secret agents"--… (mais)

Well, this book has left me muddled, torn, and shook. It was great, but it was weighed down by its marketing as the next book in the Kingsbridge series. But I cannot think of a better book to have started off 2019 with.

Had this been a separate novel, I would have loved it more, but because it's Kingsbridge #3, I wanted Kingsbridge. I wanted something that was established in the two prior books to be at stake, like the way the Market was in WWE, adding to the level of tragedy that such thing was collapsing. Unfortunately, this dealt with a part of history on a large, political scale and I, at least, knew what would happen. There was no level of suspense to who would win or not because history is history and I doubt Ken Follett was about to change it for the sake of a surprising ending.

This also meant I was comparing every little detail to TPOTE and WWE but this book was so different from the romance to the plot that the difference made it fall short, even though this was a thrilling and compelling book. It really put a damper on Follett's talents because I just could not push Merthin and Caris and Jack and Aliena out of my mind long enough to enjoy Sylvie, Margery and Ned as individual characters.

Other than that, this book was quite a knockout. It had the amazing writing and world-building and characterization that I have come to expect from Follett as well as a fun plot. Unfortunately, this would have worked better if it had been separate from the other two works and treated a sole book because, in the end, my disappointment ended up hindering my enjoyment and lowering the rating.

In this sequel of Ken Follett's [book:The Pillars of the Earth|5043], the reader finds itself near the end of the English Reformation when families and neighbors frequently find themselves aligned on differing sides of a Christian war between Protestant reformers and Catholic traditionists. Ken Follett has chosen to portray this war using two characters, each assuming positions of influence for each party. Ned Willard's, the novel's protagonist, obtains employment in Queen Elizabeth's court after his family looses their mercantile business in the European wars. Pierre Aumande, the novel's antogonist, a commoner, lacking all, seeks power and wealth in France's Catholic aristocracy through manipulation.

Many of Ken Follett's book are tomes, this one included with its 916 pages. However, I find that his books are so descriptive and written so well that they read faster than one would think. I also love how he positions fictional characters against historical backdrops interacting with noted historical figures, such as Elizabeth Tudor, Mary Stuart and James Stuart. Notable plots against English royalty in this book include assassination attempts, an invasion by the Spanish Armada, and the Gunpowder Plot of 1605 led by Guy Fawkes. If you are interested in an entertaining description of the English reformation during Elizabeth's reign, you will need to pick up (don't do so if you have a medical restriction against lifting anything greater than ten pounds) this book. Although it is historical fiction, there is enough accurate history to keep the avid history aficionado entertained. ( )

After this story and Edge of Eternity, I am wondering if Follett has lost his Mojo. ( )

It was ok. That's really how I feel after finishing the last pages of this book.

Of course, I doubt Follet can really publish anything really awful, but I'm afraid this is about as bad a book by his hand can get.

I even wonder if it really is written by him? Somehow through the central part I get this nagging idea that he must have outsourced most of the work behind A Column of Fire to his team of historical researchers. There is so little passion in this book, there is nearly no Kingsbridge at all and characters simply come and go without consequence.

Every person, fictional and historical, is acting like a silly child all the time and there is hardly any development to be found, except in some obvious passages where observations are told (as opposed to shown).

Perhaps I'm a little too knowledgeable about this historical period (however I never would have imagined before that I was, belonging neither to Spain, France, Scotland or England), but you can't base a thriller plot on the possible ascension of Mary Queen of Scots to the English throne, nor on the possible success of the Spanish armada and definitely not on Guy Fawkes' attempted terror attack.

Too bad. Pillars of the Earth is still on my top shelf, but A Column of Fire won't get a place next to it. ( )

An epic continuation of the Kingsbridge saga rich with historical significance. A wonderful story set in the sixteenth century telling the story of Queen Elizabeth I's Secret Service over her 40-year reign. ( )
