      "THE FALLEN KINGS" begins in France in January 1918. Bertie, at a formal investiture ceremony, is awarded the Victoria Cross (VC) by George V for bravery and is promoted to the rank of colonel. The war grounds on relentlessly. There is an anticipation that the Germans, now that Russia is out of the war and has more troops at its disposal, will launch a spring offensive in the West aimed at defeating the British (and, by extension, crushing an already tired and bloodied France) before the America [...]

      The Morland Dynasty series is one of the longest running series I’ve read in my life (Sweet Valley High and The Babysitters Club don’t count). Set in England, this series covers centuries of the one family, the Morlands of Morland Place, near York.As the series has progressed, the time period for each book as become shorter. The Fallen Kings covers 1919 only, the last year of World War I. The book covers the war from the British perspective (both the air force and the army), as well as the r [...]

      Glad poor Jessie and Bertie are together finally, Emma's story is so sad - her character reminds me of Vera B. a bit.August 2012 - Have just finished re-reading volumes 1 - 33. It took me slightly over a month. I hear that 34 has gone to the publisher and am glad that CHE is still plugging away.

    4. Joan says:

      I would have given this book, like almost all the others in the series 4-5 stars, but had to take one off for the Romanov parts of the books. With the bodies accounted for and the DNA evidence in, there just isn't room for playing with history any more. That said, I loved the rest of it. Few writes can describe war and the feelings of the soldiers involved as CHE can. And Emma's development as a character is interesting.

    5. Cate says:

      This book covers 1918 & ends with the Armistice in November. Jessie & Bertie finally succumb to the UST that has been building between them since before Jessie was barely legal. As a result Jessie returns to England pregnant and unwed with a married lover, albeit that Maude & Bertie separated in Dynasty 31 with Maude demanding a divorce. But these are the days of matrimonial causes and divorces weren't so easy to come by! Jessie & her sister-in-law, the ever practical & pragm [...]

      First off, you will want to read the preceding 31 books in this series before reading The Fallen Kings. The Morland Dynasty series, begun by prolific author Cynthia Harrod-Eagles as a painless way of teaching British history, began with The Founding in which a young woman on the fringes of the aristocracy is married off to a wealthy Yorkshire sheepfarmer's son. This takes place around the time of the Wars of the Roses (1400s). Through the trials and triumphs of this imaginary family, members of [...]

    7. The Library Lady says:

      I have read this entire series, hunting down used copies because my library only had the most recent books, and generally enjoying it. I've found that the earlier books weren't as good as the more recent ones and that the Morlands of the 19th and now 20th centuries have been the realest and the most engaging.I might have rated this a 3, or even a 3 1/2 bumped up to a 4 save for the fact the Cynthia Harrod-Eagles has chosen to revise history, and as someone who wrote a whole trilogy (the Anna boo [...]

    8. Frances says:

      Another excellent book, this one having to do with 1917 to 1918 World War I. Once again I am amazed at the research that goes into these books. There is one incident that involves a small town called Perm, Russia and I could find no reference to it until I spent an hour on the internet and finally found enough information to back what I was thinking was all in her mind. It is an extraordinary look into the problems of the social upheaval, the diseases, the influenza epidemic, the Romanovs, and t [...]

      I've just read this for the second of third time in preparation for reading The Dancing Years - I can't remember whether I've read that one before or not. I found this series while reading H authors from the library, and then had to start at the beginning. I've so much enjoyed the combination of English history, real life details, and the characters in the Morland dynasty. The problem occurs when you catch up with the author and have to wait for the next installment!

    10. Katie says:

      The Morland Dynasty series is my favorite historical fiction series ever! But this book was probably my least favorite so far. The first 2/3 of the book was really slow and I skimmed through many of the battle parts. The last 1/3 was good though and I got through that quickly. I am glad for WWI to be over for the series! I can't imagine how glad real people were for that war to be over at the time. Excited to read the next of the series!

    11. Christina says:

      WWI is finally over. Harrod-Eagles does an incredible job with the historical details in her books. In the volumes that have covered WWI, she has made the war feel all too real. As always, I like the way the women fight the stereotypes and take on unusual roles.

    12. Karoline says:

      So glad the war is over. It was getting really overwhelming. On another note, the surprise twist at the end was great!

    13. Veronica Lindsey says:

      In-depth historical set during WWI.Deals with loss and perseverance.

    14. Marcia says:

      Wish I had started this series at the beginningke 32 books agobut I didn't.I may though. I loved this book. Huge book but took me less than 4 days to read.

    15. Ruth says:

      Fascinating. The blend of the family stories and the history works really well.

    16. Lisa - (Aussie Girl) says:

      A Good addition to the Morland family books. I thought the sections set actually in the war dragged a bit otherwise would have given the book 4 stars.
