  1. Judith Tarr shines as always in the milieu of historical fantasy At first blush, I read the title, Pride of Kings as one would think of a pride of lions It seemed a fitting description of a group of kings Indeed, there are many kings in this story the rules of France, Germany, England, and Britain all have their time on the...

The magic of the land demands a king of noble blood to rule it books annoy me so muchsighWhy does that supposedly make such a positive difference I enjoy most of Judith Tarr s historical fiction though I used to enjoy itthan I do now and liked the idea of a book in which Prince John isn t the pitch black villain usurping Good King Richard s throne but is instead an admittedly ambitious man who lives in England and cares about its welfare while Richard sees England only as his poss The magic of the land demands a king of noble blood to rule it books annoy me so muchsighWhy does that supposedly make such a positive difference I enjoy most of Judith Tarr s historical fiction though I used to enjoy itthan I do now and liked the idea of a book in which Prince John isn t the pitch black villain usurping Good King Richard s throne but is instead an admittedly ambitious man who lives in England and cares about its welf...

  3. Truthfully, my rating for this is3.75, but quibbles quibbles It was a fun read and a delightful reimagining of history, although I have to admit that it needed a littlePOV from the Family Plantagenet for my taste As seems to be the case with me a lot, I found the primary protagonist to be grating in that I am perfect and wonderful and excruciatingl...

  4. This book actually qualifiesas a historical fantasy It is set in England as Richard the Lion Hearted takes the throne He refuses to accept the sacred kingship that would bind him to the land and the heart of Britain only desiring the mundane crown This creates havoc in the mystical, Otherworldly part of England and leads to a half French, half ifit named Arslan being summoned to go to England and help resolve this issue Arslan meets the 4 guardians of England and sets about helping t This book actually qualifiesas a historical fantasy It is set in England as Richard the Lion Hearted takes the throne He refuses to accept the sacred kingship that would bind him to the land and the heart of Britain only desiring the mundane crown This creates havoc in the mystical, Otherworldly part of England and leads to a half French, half ifit named Arslan being summoned t...

  5. Maneuvering among the rulers of Europe Richard Coeur de Lion, Philip of France, Holy Roman Emperor Henry, and Richard s family Tarr s fantasy interpretation of historical events is unique, as usual She is such a moving, visual writer that she made me eager to go along with her transformation of King John into a magical pillar of Britain His friend Arslan, son of a nobleman of Outremer and a fire spirit, is a bright delight.Tarr s PRIDE OF KINGS and DEVIL S BARGAIN both show King Richard and Maneuvering among the rulers of Europe Richard Coeur de Lion, Philip of France, Holy Roman Emperor Henry, and Richard s family Tarr s fantasy interpretation of historical events is unique, as usual She is such a moving, visual writer that she made me eager to go along with her transformation of King John into a magical pillar of Britain His friend Arslan, son of a nobleman of Outremer and a fire spirit, is a bright delight.Tarr s PRIDE OF KINGS and DEVIL S BARGAIN both show King Richard and his mother Eleanor of Aquitaine on Cru...

  6. A deeply satisfying magical retelling of the story of bad King John and Richard the Lionheart Tarr writes with grace and passion, and fits the well known history into a new mould that makes an odd sort of sense King of the English vs King of all Britain the mortal crown vs the pagan one It s fascinating to see John as one of the good guys for a change, while still being as temperamental and self serving as ever And the characters through whom the story is told Arslan, Eschiva and Kalila A deeply satisfying magical retelling of the story of bad King John and Richard the Lionheart Tarr writes with grace and passion, and fits the well known history into a new mould that makes an odd sort of sense King of the English vs King of all Britain the mortal crown vs the pagan one It s fas...

  7. It s a Judith Tarr fantasy what else needs be said It s less high fantasy than her Alamut or Isle of Glass novels, and less historical than Throne of Isis this is magic and high adventure I do love the magical beings in this one, though

  8. You don t get to see Prince John as a good guy too often very unique take on the usual story of Richard The fantasy bits were a little gratutitous, but still a fun read Too bad the other books written by Mrs Tarr in this era aren t connected at all.

  9. I tried to read this book twice Though it has good parts and writing techniques, it is not my style.

  10. No one combines history and fantasy like Judith Tarr I loved the medieval world she created and her telling of the much maligned King John s story.
