Dans la France du XIVème siècle, Philippe IV, dit le Bel, roi d'une beauté légendaire, mène le pays d'une main de fer. Devant lui il n'est d'autre choix que de plier ou de rompre ; seule compte l'idée de la nation et rien ne doit en entraver la grandeur et la force. Pour réformer l'état et le moderniser il ne recule devant aucune sacrifice. L'histoire commence avec le fameux procès que Philippe le Bel fit aux Templiers pour en amoindrir le trop grand pouvoir et confisquer leur immense fortune.
A l'heure de son exécution, François de Molay, grand maître de l'ordre des Templiers, lui jeta sa fameuse malédiction : "Pape Clément ! ... Chevalier Guillaume ! ... Roi Philippe ! ... avant un an je vous cite à paraître au tribunal de Dieu pour y recevoir la juste châtiment. Maudits ! Maudits ! Tous maudits jusqu'à la treizième générations de vos races ... !" Le destin donnera-t-il raison au grand maître ? Voici l'histoire.

Le Roi de Fer est le premier des sept volumes composant la célèbre fresque historique : Les rois maudits.

I liked it ! (Book listened in French)

What did you like most about Le roi de fer (Les rois maudits 1)?

IThe narration of the book was perfect, in my opinion. The voice makes the characters alive, gives them presence. I would not have had the same pleasure reading the book.

What other book might you compare Le roi de fer (Les rois maudits 1) to, and why?

I do not know at all, because that's not the kind of reading I'm used to. I read fantastic and fantasy, but it's not the same kind so I can not compare.

Have you listened to any of François Berland’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes, I listened to the book THE PERFUME, and the narrator knew how to give the same life to the characters, and make the story really nice. For me, the performances are equal, but I would say that the book The Parfume had a more pronounced, more dancing writing with the words, so the narration was even more incredible for the Perfume.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not specifically, but some people have more reasoned in me, like the last Templars, the infidel sisters, and their naive lovers. I found the king more bland.

Any additional comments?

As for Le Parfum, I'm not sure I could have read this book, but I loved listening to it. I really like the narrator, I really appreciate this style of voice, the type of narration. It interprets the voices giving them just what it takes of life, it does not have a voice too low or too acute, in short it was a pleasure and I think listen to the sequel! I am the type to do my audio research by narrators that I enjoyed.
