The King's Arrow by michael Cadnum


This book takes a look at a mystery in history. Walter Tirel was a real person that either accidentally or intentionally killed the king of England in 1100 ad. Very little is know about what happened so Cadnum has written a story of what could have happened. it is a decent historical fiction but, for me, not real gripping. I don't think it has a lot of teen appeal. I vote nay.

I'm a history buff, and was interested to read this fictionalised account.I don't think that the teens will have an appreciation for this time period. It's a NO from me also.
