'The Fiery Furnace' Burns with Medieval Passion and Adventure
During the 13th century Albigensian Crusades, Odon, Rainier and Miranda cousins in their late teens team up with the son of Robin Hood to take arms against French invaders, just as their elders had done before them. To protect their birthrights and beliefs and to spare their elite from being burned alive, they engage in a battle on a mountain crag against overwhelming odds.
Solidly anchored in history and archeology, The Fiery Furnace burns with medieval romance and adventure and speaks to the damage that religious intolerance can wreak on a region and its people.
I love Kimmichs writing style. The plot is intriguing, mixing historical legends, such as Robin Hood, with historical facts such as the horrors of the Inquisition. [The Fiery Furnace] is a five-star, intriguing, raw and suspenseful read.
Susan Violante, Reader Views.
[Its] fast-paced historical realism accurately captures life in the thirteenth century .One of the most impressive aspects of Kimmichs historical fiction is his loyalty to this setting and his representation of it. [The Fiery Furnace] is a well-written, thoroughly entertaining novel.
