Book Review: Blood Royal by Eric Jager

I’m actually kind of shocked. I expected to like Blood Royal, but I didn’t expect to be as fascinated with it as I was. I don’t often read nonfiction, but when I do, I am VERY picky about my choices. True crime set in 15th-century Paris? Yes, please. And this book is exactly what the blurb says it is, but it is also so much more. It’s a portrait of a city in turmoil. It’s a mystery, true, but it’s written in a narrative style that makes it seem like you are reading a brilliant historical fiction. Make no mistake, more »
