Publisher's Summary

An anthology of essays from the second year of the English Historical Fiction Authors blog, this book transports the listener across the centuries from prehistoric to 20th-century Britain. Nearly 50 different authors share the stories, incidents, and insights discovered while doing research for their own historical novels. From medieval law and literature to Tudor queens and courtiers, from Stuart royals and rebels to Regency soldiers and social calls, experience the panorama of Britain's yesteryear. Explore the history behind the fiction and discover the true tales surrounding Britain's castles, customs, and kings.

Volume two is a stand-alone book of essays that does not need to be heard in conjunction with volume one.

    Story
    "Not so much "Tales" as facts"
    What did you like best about Castles, Customs, and Kings? What did you like least?

    Did like: Interesting facts to use for writing a book or essay. Rather dull research but informative.

    Did not like: I expected short stories about this topic.


    Would you be willing to try another book from English Historical Fiction Authors? Why or why not?

    Probably not. For Audible books, that I listen to while commuting, I enjoy story telling.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Description of a castle which was inhabited by my ancestor.


    Was Castles, Customs, and Kings worth the listening time?

    No. The paper copy would be great for research for writers. I assumed the book was a story-based book.


    Any additional comments?

    An auditory learner would really enjoy studying from this book. However, I am looking for historical entertainment.
