Sorry kids, no feet.

I am a former stay-at-home mom who has given up her hopes and dreams of becoming a professional reader. I now spend my days showing small children how to play games on computers. Right now I'm living vicariously through my 9 year-old who is reading everything she can get her hands on.

The Iron King (The Accursed Kings #1)- Maurice Druon

The Iron King - Maurice Druon
I found this novel to be a little disappointing. It seems to come so highly recommended by people who have similar reading tastes and habits to mine. There was very little action for a novel that is said to have inspired Game of Thrones. This first novel seems to be more of a scene setter than anything else. There's nothing wrong with that. I think it does a wonderful job setting the stage and introducing the reader to France at the beginning of the 14th century. However, there just was not a whole lot going on. I'm hopeful that with the impending 100 Years' War, things will pick up in the following novels.
