King Maker: The Knights of Breton Court, volume 1

King Maker: The Knights of Breton Court, volume 1 - Maurice Broaddus Well written but a challenging read. Broaddus not presenting a feel good story here. He is writing a gritty, urban drama about some tough characters in tough circumstances. Gritty violence and language permeate the tale. So despite the fact he's a Christian writer, don't go into this expecting a CBA friendly book. Powerful and important but not easy to wrap one's self around. Still recommended.
