An amazing series, so much so that I'm halfway in just over a month!
Very interesting historical plot line without being solely about the history - the story it tells is so intriguing it hurts. The characters are so well written and you become so attached it honestly made me cry a few times.
The TV show based on the series is equally as inciting and very good at keeping to the books which I find alot of other versions end up going away from the books or changing lot of key events (ahem GoT).
10/10 would recommend to everyone who loves a good series to sink their teeth into!
