So you'll be teaching him how to fight in a battle with real swords and armour and chaos and blood and chopped-off bits of people everywhere, as you so picturesquely put it. But what if the heir to the throne showed every sign of keeping George on, as adviser and partner in crime?

The story is full of incident, with some colourful passages, such as those describing a royal hunt in the early part of the book.In a letter to George in 1623, James wrote, ‘God bless you, my sweet child and wife, and grant that ye may ever be a comfort to your dear father and husband’. The forty-eight-year-old was an unprepossessing, to some even slightly repulsive figure, of ‘middling stature’.

George was appointed as Royal Cup-bearer, a position that allowed him to make conversation and grow in friendship with the King.Jowers claimed that he had hired someone to kill King as a favor for a friend in the mafia, Frank Liberto, a produce merchant who died before 1993. The Department of Justice does not consider Jowers' accusations credible and refers to two of the accused individuals by pseudonym. This archetypal fantasy series has seamlessly become the best formation of an anti-hero book I have ever read, and every word pulled on my heartstrings.

Excellent world building, Deas really fills out the setting throughout the series and does a really good job of balancing world growth with character growth. Our government was very involved in setting the stage for and I think the escape route for James Earl Ray.In my opinion, he's right up there with Rothfuss and Redick (too bad his last name doesn't start with a "D"). Aided by his formidable mother Mary Villiers, Countess of Buckingham, George Villiers became one of the most highly regarded, influential men in early 17th-century England. Still, character-wise, this was a satisfying conclusion to Berren's trilogy, and I can't wait to see more of him.
