The Vow on the HeronThe King of France It was Robert of Artois a consummate troublemaker who urged Edward on likening him to a heron a cowardly birdEdward then swore on the heron that he would attack France This vow changed the course of history for it heralded the beginning of the Hundred Year's Wa. This should have been split into two books perhaps three What we have instead is a rush job with lots of telling and a lack of showingFor a king who reigned as long as Edward III there’s great potential for a trilogy especially when this author covers the lives of nearly everyone else involved during the period Because of her need to pack everything in events are rushed over It’s difficult to become engaged in this type of novel though scenes here and there did draw me in hence the three star rating It doesn't help that she invariably opts for the passive voice so you get the daughter of the king rather than the king's daughter for exampleAdd to this we have the usual Plaidy trait of repeating info to an annoying extent including references to events in previous books in the Plantagenet series On the whole a disappointment especially after the fantastic ending to the previous book which led me to think real excitement lay in store in “The Vow on the Heron”
