Guest review by T.R.
Taking place during the Papal Wars, this book refers to a period of history that most people are not only unfamiliar with, but completely unaware of even existing. Now, this isn’t to say that Of Faith and Fidelity: Geoffrey Hotspur and the War for St. Peter’s Throneis unrelatable, far from it.
With interesting, multidimensional characters, the author makes you feel invested in the story from the very beginning. While there might be a few parts of the book where you may find yourself a bit lost, they are infrequent and generally do not hinder your understanding of the story.
On the whole, Of Faith and Fidelity: Geoffrey Hotspur and the War for St. Peter’s Throne is an interesting read and a great way to spend a few rainy afternoons. And with the well-researched historical setting, you might even end up learning a bit about Catholic and European history.
