Editorial Reviews

Review

“Mr. Pötzsch is the author of a sequence of five novels, collectively known as ‘The Hangman’s Daughter,’ which have sold half a million copies in English translation. ‘The Castle of Kings’ is likely to enjoy similar success—and deserves it . . . The war scenes are grimly realistic, and the narration gripping . . . The author makes the fantastical elements work by harnessing them to the grim reality of the Peasants’ War, setting his far-fetched romance in an utterly convincing world of economic hardship, social strife and religious and political uncertainty. Oliver Pötzsch recognizes that the way to make the extraordinary credible is to anchor it in a thoroughly imagined depiction of real historical times.”  -- The Wall Street Journal

“Combine Princess Bride with Germanic history circa 1500, add a dash of Lord of the Rings, and there's a week of good fun . . ." -- Kirkus Reviews
