Review by sscarllet
I liked this book, but I didn't love it. I felt that Davis spent too much time talking about battles and not enough time talking about Henry III's personality. I loved the last chapter where, in wrapping everything up, Davis mentioned that Henry III ordered a pet for his ill child and very much loved his wife. That seems to be a very rare occurrence for a king.
