    One thought on “Days of Sun and Glory

    1. Magdalena aka A Bookaholic Swede

      I had limited knowledge of King Edward II, Queen Isabelle, and Mortimer before I started to read this book. And, haven't read the first book (yet), but I found myself quickly drawn into the story. I think Anna Belfrage has really captive a turbulent time when you could in a blink of an eye go from being high and powerful to out of favor and the justice could be both swift and deadly. Not even being king could guaranty your safety.Adam de Guirande helped Mortimer escape in the previous book and n [...]

    2. Jenny Q

      Days of Sun and Glory is the second book in Anna Belfrage's The King's Greatest Enemy series. I enjoyed the first book, In the Shadow of the Storm, though I pointed out a few issues that kept me from rating it higher, and I'm happy to say I enjoyed this book more. It's hard to review books in a series without giving away spoilers from earlier installments, so I am going to skip a detailed plot recap and attempt to avoid major spoilers from both books! Here goes:At the end of In the Shadow of the [...]

      Find this and other reviews at: flashlightcommentary.I didn’t think twice about picking up Anna Belfrage’s Days of Sun and Glory. I’ve read all of Blefrage’s other books and I enjoy her style and tone a great deal. I feel that her stories strike a nice balance between fact and fiction and the depth of her research shows an obvious passion for the history on which her work is based, but it is her representation of people that always stands out in my mind. As an author, she puts a lot of e [...]

    4. Paula Lofting

      This beautifully written love-story-come-historical-intrigue was just the thing to keep me hooked. It has everything a book needs to keep me turning the pages, love, betrayal, conflict, and a fantastic leading lady and man. It is rare for me to give out such praise for a novel these days as it takes a lot to float my boat, but this book deserves the accolade of the maximum stars. Its absolutely awesome. Set in the 14thc, essentially a love story between the David and Victoria Beckham of the medi [...]

    5. Joan Fallon

      Ms Belfrage has the knack of capturing your attention and not letting it go until the last page. This fast moving historical novel has it all: a hero who is likeable, loyal and brave with a headstrong wife who will let nothing stand between her and her family, a villain so evil that you would gladly kill him yourself, tender love scenes and ghastly torture. Set in a time of political intrigue and uncertainty, Ms Belfrage leads the reader through a maze of plots and counter-plots to a conclusion [...]

    6. David Baird

      After reading In the Shadow of the Storm, the first book in The King’s Greatest Enemy series I just couldn’t wait to get to grips with this one.We are back with Adam and Kit. Adam owes Lord Roger and also the young prince his life and in this tale he’s torn between the two men he cares for.The story follows perfectly from the first book and instantly you can recall all the events of the previous tale and the injury’s inflicted on Adam at the hands of Hugh Despenser.Mortimer is out gainin [...]

    7. Mercedes Rochelle

      Anna Belfrage has cooked up another keep-you-up-all-night book with her second volume in the Kings Greatest Enemy series. I would strongly recommend reading volume one first, or you might lose the subtleties of all the complicated relationships. One thing is for sure, the bad guy is recognizable from the start; Hugh Despenser is the wickedest villain you will ever meet. He only needs to walk into the scene and you know something terrible is going to happen. I tend to be squeamish about a charact [...]

    8. A Holland Reads

      Another hit by Anna. There is something about her books that just draw me from the first page and do not let go until the very end. I enjoy the historical aspect of the book and the characters that just come off the pages. You can always tell that the author does her research when writing her books. It shows through in all the little details she adds. There is plenty of intrigue and suspense in this book to keep you interested until the end. Don't be daunted by the length of this book as once yo [...]

    9. Cheryl

      Oh my, contrary to my resolve, I have been sucked into another series. This rips along at a great pace during one of my favorite periods. You can keep the Tudors give me the 13th-15th centuries any time! And so, now I wait for Book 3.

    10. Cindy Woods

      What a good book!This is the second book of the series, and the plot truly thickens. This is such an interesting time in English history which the author has brought to life with fictional characters woven into it. You get a real feel for the political tension of the era. Adam and Kit walk a thin line from day to day and I got a real idea of what life at court must have been like in this very unsettled 14th century era England as everyone is out for themselves. The greed and ambitions of people [...]

      Days of Sun & Glory y Anna Belfrage has received a Chill with a Book Readers' Awardchillwithabook"Anna is a great writer. So much so that while reading her work, I find myself ‘in the story’ ~ excellent.""This is a good story and well written. Book 2 begins perfectly after Book 1; good flow."Pauline BarclayFounder of Chill with a Book Awards

    12. Nicky Moxey

      Love and powerSet against the historical truth of King Edward and the entangled love he had for Hugh Despenser, the great love that Adam and Kit share is a breath of sanity and reason. And Adam's regard for their young prince shines against the political manoeuvres at court. An enthralling read.

    13. Lori Greenlee

      A decent storyI have to admit i forgot the as storyline from the previous novel, but it did come back to me . I like reading about the kings and queens and the fiction that is weaved in it . Kit and her husband Adam and their adventures keep you entertained. I will the next one .

    14. Erin Al-Mehairi

      In writing this review for Anna Belfrage's Days of Sun and Glory (the second book in her new The King's Greatest Enemy medieval history series), I am tasked with deciding how much more can I really say about Anna's writing since I've reviewed her gaining on 10 times now. Her writing is always fast-paced enough to keep a reader turning the page, her pacing and plot(s) flawless, her dialogue authentic and witty, her characters fully dimensional and her research dynamic. It's still the case in Days [...]

    15. Aleen ~Lampshade Reader

      Originally posted on lampshadereader“Unfortunately for Mortimer, he has placed a pup on the throne that will grow into a magnificent hound, and God save whoever comes between him and his bone.” Wow! This was 400 pages of court intrigue, heartache, and political agendas. Yet again proving that I would not want to live in the Middle Ages.If one thing hasn’t changed from that period to present day, it is the personal hope for power and money. It obviously led to corruption in this story and i [...]

    16. Kathleen Kelly

      Days of Sun and Glory is the continuing story of Adam de Guirande and his wife Kit. Because of Adam's support of Roger Mortimer, he is on the edge of being considered a traitor and is the sworn enemy of Hugh Despenser. King Edward is pretty much at the command of Despenser and because of this not a fan of his people. Edward II also called Edward of Caernarfon, was King of England from 1307 until he was deposed in January 1327 by Roger Mortimer.Hugh le Despenser, 1st Lord Despenser also referred [...]

    17. Charlene

      My verdict – ****4.5 stars****Book II of Ms. Belfrage’s series The King’s Greatest Enemy, is well researched with plenty of historical details that will transport the reader to the 14th century. Ms. Belfrage makes her characters come to life, and if you aren’t cringing with fear every time Hugh Despenser comes on scene, why not?! Evil radiates from that man.This is a turbulent era in England’s history and even readers unfamiliar with this particular time period will be drawn into the f [...]

    18. Kimberly

      I am absolutely in love with Anna Belfrage’s novel “Days of Sun & Glory”, which is the second book in The King’s Greatest Enemy Series. It is so well-written and researched, and completely reaches out and grabs and holds the reader’s attention. I wish I had been able to read the first book in the series prior to reading this one, because it’s obvious a lot of interesting adventures happened in that one as well! Although it is the second book in the series, I was able to read it a [...]

    19. Margaret

      I don't think it's a big secret that I am a fan of Anna Belfrage and have been since reading her Graham Saga Series, so it only stands to reason that when she has a new book out I read it right away. Days of Sun and Glory is book two in her The King's Greatest Enemy series and she does a great job of recapping enough to make this book work as a standalone but I highly recommend starting with book one, it's a great series and starting from the beginning will just make the ride more enjoyable. Tho [...]

      The Days of Sun and Glory (The King's Greatest Enemy #2) by Anna Belfrage is second in the series featuring Adam de Guirande, former supporter of Roger Mortimer now pledged to the young Prince Edward, and his wife Kit. Covering the aftermath of Mortimer's arrest and escape from the Tower and the devastating fall out from these events for all of Mortimer's supporters, this book is another page turner from Belfrage. Adam de Guirande has to walk a fine line to deflect any suspicion away from his lo [...]

      I am so happy to be have Kit and Adam back in my life! It feels like it's been forever since the last book came out. This is the 10th book I've read by Anna Belfrage and once again it's a winner!I enjoyed watching Kit and Adam grow into their marriage and create a really solid partnership. There are a lot of highs and lows for them in the story but at the end of the day, they were always still there for each other. I love the little family they've created, not just with their children but with t [...]

      copy received from Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours for an honest reviewreview at: booknerdloleotodo/I was first introduced to Anna Belfrage with the Graham Saga Series. It was a fascinating series and I really enjoyed it even though I had not read the entire collection. Belfrage jumps right into another great series with “The King’s Greatest Enemy.” When the story begins the atmosphere is filled with tension. Adam de Guiranda and his wife are awaiting a baby. Adam’s loyalty to the [...]

    23. Patty

      This is the second book in this series and there will be at least a third. It stands alone just fine – while having read the first book in the series enhances the understanding of this book, it can easily be read and enjoyed all on its own. It picks up pretty much where In the Shadow of the Storm left off with Queen Isabella trying to maintain relevance in a court where her husband King Edward II is in thrall to Hugh Despenser. Hugh and his father have been acquiring land, titles and riches wi [...]

    24. Jo Barton

      Those who have read book #1 in The King's Greatest Enemy series will be aware of what happened in that first book and of how the story ended, so I'm not going to repeat what has already has gone before except to say that if you haven't read book one , then stop here and make amends.What I enjoyed about this second book was the way that the continuation of the story followed seamlessly so that there was no confusion of where you are in the events of the time. We meet up again, very quickly, with [...]

    25. Deborah Pickstone

      Gee, this series I normally wouldn't find readable - too pat, too many stereotypes - and too much suspension of disbelief, never mind doing it willingly! However, I have read 2 books and still don't enormously want to throw the book down's a bit of a mystery to me! Main points annoying me are historical howlers and too much gratuitous sex! (On Valentine's Day, yet).

    26. Cynthia Graham

      Violence and treason lurk everywhere in fourteenth century Europe – from the streets of London and Paris, and even into the Queen’s own chambers. Surrounded by spies and political intrigue, Adam and Kit find themselves in the middle of high stakes political turmoil, where the danger that faces them and their family is very real. Set against this vast background of political posturing is a poignant love story – a love that is threatened by the events that surround them.Torn between his loya [...]

    27. Elysium

      4,5 starsIt was great to see that Adam and Kit have managed to get such a happy marriage despite the way it started. It’s not all happy times but they’re still there for each other and I love their relationship. I wasn’t a fan of Mortimer in book 1 and I’m still not but I was waiting to see how Adam would feel about the future and Mortimer’s role in it. It seems Adam has chosen prince Edward’s side and I’m glad about that. I wonder how that will go in the future. I was so glad that [...]

    28. Paul Bennett

      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 t [...]

    29. Linda

      Very good sequel to In the Shadow of the Storm. This is a series about the Mortimer rebellion against Henry II in England and follows fictional characters Kit and Adam. Book two sees them accompany Prince Edward to France to pay homage for English lands in France and they all get caught up with Mortimer and Queen Isabella as they prepare to invade England and deal with Hugh Despenser and King Edward the Second. All of Anna Belfrages books are very well written but this series is even better.

    30. Piers Alexander

      I couldn't put this down. I read it straight after the first book, In The Shadow of the Storm, and was pulled right back into the story of Adam and Kit de Guirande and their struggles to survive in divided 1320s England. It's pretty steamy in places, and the violence is so realistic you will put the book down from time to time, but it also has a very believable love story at its core. The stakes rise in this sequel, and you will be left begging for more. Loved it.
