Richard I was a towering figure who certainly seized the attention of his subjects and rivals when living. He had a very big footprint in the 1800's, when the idea of European and especially British achievements was paramount in historical writing, fictional and academic. Richard got a good boost from, of course, Walter Scott, for whom the image of a British king sailing across the world, and deposing evil usurpers, and throwing himself into the struggle to reclaim the Holy places was audience gold. Sharon Penman has a firm grip on a discriminating audience, as well, and has produced a book worthy of several days' attention.
Some of her mechanisms are familiar to me now, but how else are you going to write for her particular customers? When not dealt with by her favourite resource, the family gathering where the girls can describe what is going on with their men, the action scenes are bit flat, given the material the sources provide us. Nonetheless, those who like this sort of thing will find not much of a fall off of quality. ( )

What can I say? It's an SKP novel. Wonderfully written and full of historical fact, this is the story of Richard The Lionheart's unbelievable Outremer sojourn. The Third Crusade. Nearly to the walls of Jerusalem, but not quite far enough to win the city from Saladin. There is another novel in the works and I will wait patiently for it.

Lionheart was OK but not as good as the first book I read by Penman. ( )

Very interesting novel - it changed my view of Richard, who I'd always thought was a swaggering, rather brainless war monger. As the author notes, there must have been some reason that he was Eleanor's favorite child. I understand that better now. ( )

A book by Sharon Penman is always eagerly awaited, at least by me and I am sure a myriad of other readers. The author's books are up there with the best historical fiction writers of today. If however, you are expecting a couple of hundred pages and a lightweight or easy reading storyline then Sharon Penman is probably not the author for you. Most of her books are heavyweight (in volume, not in content. No 200 page wafer thin offerings from this author). This book runs to just over six hundred pages and is the first of a two part series.

Sharon Penman's attention, not only to detail, but also to historical accuracy is as good as anyone writing today. She has the ability to bring the period of history she is writing about to life for the reader. At the same time she writes in a style that is never boring. No long passages, or chapters that could safely be left out of the book without the story suffering. Everything in the book is there for a reason, and that is to add to the enjoyment of the reader. A style that some other author's could learn a great deal from.

The English crown had barely flattened the hair of Richard's head before he upped and left his new Kingdom for the Holy Land and the Third Crusade. A popular true story, told time and again through the centuries. Richard is portrayed as an indestructible symbol of the Christian forces in the Holy Land and his fearlessness in battle is well documented. The author tells the story of Richard with compassion, at a time when warfare was barbaric and brutal death common place. The Lionheart was sometimes brash and bullying, but a man of enormous intelligence and military acumen. At other times he had the weakness, self doubts and misgivings of any mortal man. The author also sympathetically portrays Richard's undoubted respect for his opponent Saladin, even though the Lionheart will move heaven and earth to destroy the opposing forces, and regain the Holy Land.

This book is a terrific read, and one that should not be missed by all those who love historical fiction. I for one am waiting with anticipation for the sequel, A King's Ransom A book that follows Richard the Lionheart's difficult and lengthy journey back from the Holy Land. ( )

Theirs was a story that would rival the legend of King Arthur and Guinevere, his faithless queen.
