A Column of Fire (Kingsbridge #3)

In 1558, the ancient stones of Kingsbridge Cathedral look down on a city torn apart by religious conflict. As power in England shifts precariously between Catholics and Protestants, royalty and commoners clash, testing friendship, loyalty, and love.Ned Willard wants nothing more than to marry Margery Fitzgerald. But when the lovers find themselves on opposing sides of the religious conflict dividing the country, Ned goes to work for Princess Elizabeth. When she becomes queen, all Europe turns against England. The shrewd, determined young monarch sets up the countrys first secret service to give her early warning of assassination plots, rebellions, and invasion plans. Over a turbulent half-century, the love between Ned and Margery seems doomed as extremism sparks violence from Edinburgh to Geneva. Elizabeth clings to her throne and her principles, protected by a small, dedicated group of resourceful spies and courageous secret agents.The real enemies, then as now, are not the rival religions. The true battle pitches those who believe in tolerance and compromise against the tyrants who would impose their ideas on everyone elseno matter what the cost....

A Column of Fire (Kingsbridge #3) Reviews

  • Célia

    Mesmo tendo sido escrito há quase 30 anos, Os Pilares da Terra continua a ser, sem grande dúvida, o livro mais lido e adorado do escritor britânico Ken Follett. Dezoito anos depois surgiu Mundo sem Fim, a sequela decorrida dois séculos depois da história original, que recuperou a população de Kingsbridge no século XIV, durante o período da Peste Negra. Agora, Ken Follett decidiu prosseguir com esta série, voltando a Kingsbridge no século XVI, em pleno conflito religioso entre católicos e protest ...more

    I love his writing.... this one just fell short

  • Sarah

    I'm giving this four stars because in comparison to many other historical fiction books, it certainly deserves that many stars at least. In comparison to Follett's other Kingsbridge novels, sadly, I'd only give it three stars.

    There is something magical about The Pillars of the Earth and World Without End. In those novels Follett weaves together the lives of ordinary people and makes what might otherwise seem mundane, engrossing. They tell the tales of good vs. evil, the many obstacles on the pat

    I've had a whole month and 900+ pages to think about it-- and I just didn't enjoy A Column of Fire as much as The Pillars of the Earth and World Without End.

    I think I know why, and I'll get to that in a second, but I'd first like to say that this isn't a bad book. I happily read right through to the end without feeling like it was a chore to finish. Some of Follett's tried and tested formula is present here - namely, a central starcrossed romance and despicable villains - which keeps the pages

    Yes, I have done this many times:watched a man die knowing that I, more than anyone else, had brought him to his just but dreadful punishment. I did it for my country, which is dear to me; for my sovereign, whom I serve; and for something else, a principle, the belief that a person had the right to make up his own mind about God.

    He was the last of many men I sent to hell, but he made me think of the first...


    Well, my hats off to Mr. Ken Follett on another fantastic historical fiction that I go

    I received a copy of the book from a Goodreads Giveaway.

    I will start by saying I loved the first two books in the Kingsbridge series. I remember being engrossed with their stories so I was very excited to read the third installment. However, if you choose to write a Tudor-era book that is one of many in a sea of Elizabethan novels, it had better be fantastic and this just wasn't. It irritated me to no end that most of the fictional characters somehow took over the pivotal role in so many importa

    Ken Follett again took a lengthy hiatus before penning this third novel in the series, which is reflected in the writing and shall be discussed below. Kingsbridge, with its cathedral and mighty bridge, again proves to be the initial backdrop of this thoroughly researched tome, set in the 16th century. The great community emerges in the opening pages of the novel, where the reader encounters Ned Willard, returning after a period away. As the snow falls, causing the great Cathedral to disappear, t ...more

    I was very familiar with this time period, the religious wars in France and England, the Spanish Inquisition. So much bloodshed, killing in the name of the Lord. A huge cast of characters, no character list provided, took quite a while to remember who was who, this is a very lengthy tome. A fantastic portraying of the history of this time period. Yet, for me frustrating as well. In his effort to cover so much ground, in different areas, he sacrificed character development, and made the various t ...more
