Publisher's Summary

William the Conqueror as you've never seen him before--the Leopards of Normandy trilogy will tell his story in all its wild, intoxicating, unfailingly dramatic glory. David Churchill does for William what blockbuster TV series The Tudors did for Henry VIII.
The devil and his bastard son....
Robert of Normandy is handsome, brave, and impetuous--and has just seized Normandy's mightiest castle. But his older brother, Richard, the duke of Normandy, wants it back...and will take it by force if need be.
Herleva of Falaise is the mere daughter of a tanner, but she's more beautiful than any princess, and when she and Robert meet, together they will change the course of history.
Their illegitimate son, William, is born into a world of murder and intrigue, where families are torn apart by bitter rivalries, renegade warlords stop at nothing in their lust for power and wealth, and professional assassins are never short of work.
His enemies will mock him as William the Bastard. But we have another name for him: Conqueror.

Enjoyable listen

The first book I have read by this author and it will not be the last. The narration and story made this a book that describes this period in history with a high degree of accuracy. It brings it alive and is almost maciavellan in its plots and twists

Good book ruined by the narrator

I think this is a good book and might even be a decent series.
I shall get the second book on kindle to find out because the narration is so bad it is baffling.
Russell Bentley puts inflection in the wrong places and often stops. And starts. In entirely the wrong places. In short his narration has all the hallmarks of someone reading a language that is foreign to him whilst bored witless.
I found it impossible to listen to.
