Stuck with his wife in jail Philip was in a major dilemma. A king needs heirs and he would not get them from an adulterous wife that was in jail. He needed help and he enlisted the help of his uncle in ridding himself of his wife and finding a new one. With everyone fighting especially the advisors and the Kings uncle, Philip proved he was no king like his father. He relied heavily on his fathers corrupt advisors until the Templars curse proved it was out to destroy Philip the Fair’s family all the way down to the thirteenth generation.
4/5 this one like the previous novel in the series “The Iron King” took awhile to pick up but once it did I found I could not put it down. It was kind of confusing at points with the advisors and all his family fighting with the royals but I did find that the character index was very helpful.
