If you enjoy reading engaging accounts of England's kings, then you'll like this book covering the first 250 years of the early rulers following the rule of William the Conqueror. It describes many battles with the French & Scots, dysfunctional family squabbles, struggles over succession, the Magna Carta and much more. I finished reading it right when the local PBS station aired the 3-part series titled: "She Wolves: England's Early Queens." I really enjoyed the part about 3 of the queens described in the book: Matilda, Eleanor of Aquitaine, and Isabella.

My favourite book for 2013, and I prefer fiction. Seriously, you cannot make this stuff up. Well written in contemporary english, captivating from page one. Looking forward to Jones' next book about the war of the roses.
