So Will.i.am is gallivanting round France with all the other Williams and doing a bit of fighting. And Harold and assorted Ediths are gaining power in England, fighting, being banished, coming back, doing some more fighting, and annoying the King. And there's also stuff going on in Denmark and Norway. Oh and there's a pilgrimage to the Holy Land as well.
Yep, there's an awful lot going on, and sometimes I feel as if I'm reading a history text book rather than a novel. I mean hey, I've studied this period myself and I know exactly how complicated it was with all the different factions trying to gain the upper hand, but sometimes I find myself thinking, oh just give it a rest with all the politics and get on with telling the story.
