Praise for The Brethren

"Swashbuckling historical fiction... For all its philosophical depth [The Brethren] is a hugely entertaining romp... The comparisons with Dumas seem both natural and deserved and the next 12 instalments [are] a thrilling prospect." -- Christobel Kent, Guardian

"A vivid novel by France's modern Dumas... [there is] plenty of evidence in the rich characterisation and vivid historical detail that a reader's long-term commitment will be amply rewarded." -- Sunday Times

"We're swept away by triumph, tragedy, action and adventure... It's a novel like this that makes reviewing one of the best jobs in the world." -- Bookbag, Five Star Review

"Cleverly depicts France's epic religious wars through the intimate prism of one family's experience... Beautifully written." -- Metro

Praise for the series:

"The spectacular 13-volume evocation of 16th-17th-century France." -- Independent

"A master of the historical novel." -- Guardian

"Robert Merle is one of the very few French writers who has attained both popular success and the admiration of critics. The doyen of our novelists is a happy man." -- Le Figaro

"A wonderful, colourful, breathlessly narrated historical panorama." -- Zeitpunkt

"The Dumas of the twentieth century." -- Neues Deutschland
