La Legende De Murat

Book Review   by:Christophe250     Original Author: Erik S. Larsen
ª
 

What if England had won the 100 years war ? And what if A.D. 1450 meant nothing else but the definitive integration of Normandy to the English kingdom ? What kind of language would be spoken in this part of the world today ? Which religion would obtain there ? What would the duchy’s politics look like ? In other words, who would be today’s Normans and what would they dream of ? These are the questions Erik S. Larsen tries to answer in his new novel entitled “La Légende de Murat” (The Legend of Murat). But be warned, dear reader : these answers will come to you as a mighty shock for this Normandy, as a permanent and determining part of Britain for over five centuries, is far, very very far from that peaceful region in the north-west of France that you only hear about when whole herds of cows fall ill on the continent…

This Norman fiction is the third novel by Erik S. Larsen and his second uchronian narrative.
