In this gripping tale of passion, politics and conflict, King Henry II finds himself brutally betrayed by his wife Eleanor and three eldest sons when they enter into a rebellion against him. Aligning themselves with Henry's most bitter enemy, King Louis of France, their treacherous actions will have devastating consequences as they bring about the downfall of a brilliant man and a powerful empire. InDevil's Brood, the compelling story of Henry and Eleanor's once great love affair is explored in an uniquely vivid way. What twists of fate turn love to hatred?

The story of Henry II and his betrayal by all four of his sons: Hal (Henry III), Richard I (Lionheart) , Geoffrey, and John. Hal and Geoffrey would die before their father. Richard would become king with no male heirs and John would succeed him. It's also the story of Henry and Eleanor of Aquataine. This was a very informative and insightful book. In this book Penman outshone Druon in his Plantagenet series; as he barely touched on these relationships except for the wars for titled land. It was a bit too long as I lost interest in about the last 100 pages, which was setting up of Richard's coronation and the planning of the crusade to take the Holy Land from Saladin. This was book 3 in the Henry II Trilogy. 753 pages ( )

Great story! Love Henry and Eleanor and glad that I finally know the story behind such famous names. What sadness and sorrow. I felt for Henry even as I damned him for his obstinacy and self-centeredness. Wonderful book. ( )

I really enjoyed this very long book. It is well written and researched and can be read as a stand alone. I hadn't read the first two books in the series and did not have a problem. We see Harry, Eleanor and their children as real people. However as far as I'm concerned, not very likeable people. ( )

My favorite Penman books are "Sunne in Splendor" and "Here Be Dragons." I wouldn't rate this book quite as high--it wasn't as moving--but it was engrossing. And I think the trilogy builds and is cumulative in it's power. Penman certainly is wonderful at making you see the different points of views of her conflicting characters. If in the two previous novels I definitely felt it tilted to one side in this one I was more torn between Henry and Eleanor, Henry and his sons. The whole plot line reminds me very much of King Lear--and tragedy of the sharpest kind. ( )

The breakdown of the Plantagenets at the end of Henry II's time is chronicled in necessarily excruciating detail. starting in 1172, it follows the rising level of violence as the impatient sons jockey for the big prize. Somehow, this is not one of Penman's livelier efforts, there not being enough action sequences, but far too many family gatherings at Christmas where things are discussed and not shown. It would leave a big hole if missed, but it is just flatly done. ( )
