    One thought on “The House of the Wolf”

    1. Another very old copy of a book that is new to me. Luckily this one isn't falling apart the way the last two antique books I bought have been falling apart. The House of the Wolf is a romance set in the harrowing turmoil of 16th Century France. Heavy-handed and powerful, this classic is a great work of historical fiction.

    2. A very entertaining, blood-soaked, action-packed romp through turbulent 16th century Paris. The House of the Wolf feels like a young adult novel written in ornate early 20th-century prose. The story itself is simple and takes place in the span of only a week, and the protagonists - three hearty youths - are driven by naive ideals of chivalry and valor. They quickly get an education in real life, however, when their ill-conceived rescue mission becomes entangled in a plot to seize the reins of po [...]

    3. A much older book, sort of a precursor to the 3 Musketeers, in that in focuses on three brothers (all with women's names, but I guess that's France for you), trying to protect someone and getting caught up in events much larger than they. An interesting read.

    4. The writing is good, the historical context is interesting. The book is probably best suited for young readers seeking action adventure stories. Although, I will admit to enjoying it, even though being well past the age recommended.

    5. Set in the time of Henry of Navarre's wedding to Margaux and St Bartholemew's Day Massacre. Swashbuckling, period romantic adventure. Enjoyable.
