Reviews

Praise for THE LAST DUEL

"This high-suspense, sanguinary tale ensnares readers. . . . The tension is nearly unendurable. . . . Sex, savagery, and high-level political maneuvers energize a splendid piece of popular history."--Kirkus Reviews
"Jager provides an excellent depiction of feudal society, placing the reader into the lives of knights and nobles, detailing their relationships with each other and their lords. The ongoing Hundred Years' War and each man's role in it give this personal conflict its historical context. The story of the duel and the rivalry leading up to it make for quick reading as enthralling and engrossing as any about a high-profile celebrity scandal today."--Gavin Quinn, Booklist
"If you read only one book about the Middle Ages, Eric Jager's thriller is the one to read."--Steven Ozment, author of A Mighty Fortress and The Burgermeister's Daughter
