I finally understand all the buzz about this trilogy being one of the Historical Fiction genre's first and best classics---SKP sets the standard for good, accurate, historical novels. There is something in Here Be Dragons for everyone--great story (true, actually), great character development and placement in their own time with vivid details of the lives they would have led, a nice but not sappy love story, and lots of war and battles. Beware--if you read this one, you will immediately want to read the remaining two of the trilogy! Any HF fan must read this trilogy. It's on my keeper shelf.

Excellent storytelling with historical integrity. This book is set in 13th century England and Wales under King John, and is based on the true story of his daughter Joanna and the Welsh prince Llewelyn. An intriguing read.

Don't let the length of this novel deter you; despite its 700+ pages, it is quite readable. Sharon Kay Penman is an excellent historical novelist. She does a great job of evoking 13th century England and Wales. The story of Joanna and Llewelyn, based in history, is fascinating and holds the reader's attention. I look forward to reading mroe of Penman's work.

This book has everything, action, adventure, romance, history, and humor. Incredibly researched and as juicy as a soap opera. The biggest plot twist shocked me in that it was the real historical outcome not just the author's fancy. All of Ms. Penman's book are excellent but this is the best.
