Days of Sun and Glory by Anna Belfrage

A taut thriller of a sequel awaits you, my peeps and fellow travelers.  Kit and Adam find themselves in a precarious position as Hugh Despenser continues his vengeful hatred of them while they are now members of the Royal Court.  Toss in an heir to the throne who is being played by his parents as they seek to control him for the future, mix in a bitter feud between King and Queen and vigorously stir in the Mortimer plot to overthrow the King.  The result is a marvelously crafted, character driven tale of anguish, hope, fear and bravery.  The author has the reader guessing throughout the book what the outcome of these events will be, even though the reader may know the end from history.  That, my friends, is what makes a great read; at least to this humble scribbler of reviews.  4.8 stars
