“Anvil of God” Book


"Anvil of God, Book One of the Carolingian Chronicles" is a new historical novel that follows the death of Charles the Hammer and the lives of his family and friends as they try to keep his empire together and their own lives in tact.

"In the wake of his death, a dangerous mix of ambition, devotion and betrayal consumes the family of Charles the Hammer as they plot to seize the Merovingian throne. A new piece of historical fiction by J. Boyce Gleason, “Anvil of God” chronicles the chaos that ensues when Charles the Hammer’s death puts his family’s plans to take the throne in jeopardy." (BohlsenGroup)

I loved this book- loved it. “Anvil of God, Book One of the Carolingian Chronicles” was a real page turner, with well flushed out characters that you felt vested in. I read this book in two sittings, only stopping because the plane landed. It was full of historical fact with each character’s personal story woven in. Although each story was full of historic detail, some parts were pure fiction, with details of lives and even some characters made up or enhanced for the dramatic purposes of the book (which was real and what or who was made up is explained in the book’s epilogue). It was woven together beautifully, and made me want to read more about the real people this book was based on. I highly recommend this book, and hope that the author continues the series.
