Review: Blood Royal


Love it!

Once again Jager takes us back into French history with the murder of Louis Duke of Orleans in 1407.

We follow the investigation of Guillaume de Tigonville, as Jager uses witness depositions to the set the scene preceeding the murder. We then follow the murder investigation itself which takes de Tigonville down a dangerous political path, the results of which affect the future of France.

With clever and concise storytelling and the use of medieval documents, Jager outlines the repercussions of the investigation on both the main characters and of France itself.
