Winged Lion Publications Releases "The Boy King's Tale: as Told by Geoffrey Chaucer"

By: PRLog

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - June 19, 2023 - PRLog -- In the new historical fiction novel "The Boy King's Tale: as Told by Geoffrey Chaucer" author Michael January takes us on a vivid and fast-paced journey back to 14th century England. Two entwined love stories, young and old, lead to betrayal, murder, and the near overthrow of a kingdom, in the extraordinary true story adventure of the earliest days of one of England's most revered kings, Edward III, who must come of age in the twisted labyrinth of medieval intrigue after his father is deposed and murdered by his mother and her lover, to fight for his crown and his young bride, told by court poet Geoffrey Chaucer as one of his tales.

Publishers Weekly Booklife Prize Review: Steeped with fast-paced betrayal, intrigue, and intense conflict within an authentic setting, The Boy King's Tale intermingles historical details with striking and tantalizing character portraits.

Kirkus Reviews: In this story of Edward III's coming-of-age and his confusion about his father. Edward's saucy bride, Philippa, gets our attention in their courting, and Mortimer is a sharp villain. Isabella is complex and compromised. An entertaining, well-written tale of a time so far away from us.

Reader's Favorite 5-Star Review:  An exceptional choice to tell the tale through the eyes of Geoffrey Chaucer, the story is redolent with intrigues, battles, and psychological warfare. Beautifully written and easy to read. For anyone that loves tales of knights, derring-do, and chivalry, this is a fantastic read but for anyone who just enjoys a rollicking good story.

The Historical Fiction Company "The Boy King's Tale" receives five stars and the 'Highly Recommended' award of excellence. The characters come alive on the pages, with real human emotions, abandonment, pain, fear, and ultimately, love, courage, and strength. An entwining story of two different and vastly different loves – the one between Edward and Phillipa, and the one between Isabella and Mortimer – the pure ambition and selfishness of the aging couple, and the fresh and vibrant love of the younger couple...all enmeshed in the political turmoil as Mortimer acquires more power. A remarkable unputdownable must-read historical novel!"

Michael January is a writer for film and television as well as a travel writer, photographer, and author. This is his third historical novel following the groundbreaking literary portrait, "Secret Memoirs of Mary Shelley" and thrilling historical military adventure, "Aces: A Novel of Pilots in WWII"

"The Boy King's Tale: as Told By Geoffrey Chaucer" is available at Amazon for Kindle and Paperback,  Paperback for Library and Bookstore, Audible Audiobook, Barnes and Noble, and wherever books are sold.
