    1. Bodo the Apostate "Bodo The Apostate" is a story that begins in 818 A.D during the Carolingian Empire in the region of Aquitaine.He was the son of Count Gunzo, who died while at war, thus leaving Bodo and his elder sister Adeltrud orphan; their mother was already deceased at the time of the Count's death.Upon the death of Count Gunzo, the children's uncle then takes them to live at court against the wishes of Bodo, who at the time was only six years old.

    2. Donald is a fabulous technical and historical writer overall, but Bodo the Apostate (his newest novel) is nothing short of his best work all the way around.

The church was a source of power and through [...]
