    One of the finest novels in the English language but unputdownable

    A Spanish novel and I don’t think it’s been translated into English The title could be roughly translated into “The Transparent King’s Story” I was given this as a gift ages ago and only now having a hankering for historical fiction that I could not resist read it I cannot believe it took me so long to read thisSet in a 12th century battlefield Leola a teenage peasant strips a dead knight and puts on his clothes to protect herself against the hordes of soldiers and slaughter The premise seems uite simple but Leola soon meets a witch Nyneve who follows and leads her into a world she never dreamt of knowingThe one thing that drew me in right at first was the style and wording so good Montero does these really amazing things with words that make everything so serene and calming even in the most gruesome of scenes It reminded me of a way a painter must look at an object noticing bits and pieces the rest of us wouldn’t For example when she wants to say there is a group of soldiers passing by she’ll just write “there were heavy flashes of silver running in front of her eyes darkening as they went” It’s so good I can’t explain itDo you know those scenes where the author will describe exactly how many creases are in a sheet? That doesn’t happen here It’s not too terribly descriptive just enough so that I can imagine freely what everything looks like The setting isn’t important the characters are and it focuses heavily on how they view and world and how events affect their views of itThere are so many subtle and intricate subplots that when they pop up they’re not blatant and obvious For example the Transparent King’s Story is told by several minor characters throughout in completely random moments There’s also the longing for Avalon and King Arthur’s myth too It’s amazing just amazing you she managed to wove this really intricate storyline togetherThe characters are fantastic There’s criticism to the Church and it’s a bit of a love letter to love itself Love in all forms love for God for friends for lovers for things for animals It’s all good really And since this is historical fiction I must nitpick IT’S SO ACCURATE It’s really gross sometimes because things were gross in the 12th century and no woman wears her hair down and everyone has bonnets and just ugh so many little details that were incredibly well researched The author took some liberties with the timelines and characters but at least she has the decency to tell us about it in the epilogueI loved loved this book It’s one of the best I’ve read hands down It’s kind of up there with Wolf Hall Have I mentioned it’s really good? It is

    I really enjoyed of the flow of this story but what I liked the most were the tiny ueoutes from the mind of the Leola a strong girl who would define the meanings she needed to define along her life Escape war love mindfulness advice A story full of tiny details that are randomly set in a beautiful way that can get into history but of course it is not based on history A chilled story for tiny reading moments in random places

    A peasant girl plays knight in stolen armor and winds up being one with the help of Arthurian cast off Nynaeve Also worthy of mention are the Church’s bloody suppression of the Catarite Albigensian heresy and the founding of the Inuisition Those were not happy times
