The Game of Kings  - Dorothy Dunnett

It took me longer than expected to finish this book, but I ended up really liking it. There are some fantastics characters in this book, especially the female ones (Sybilla is a force of nature), and I loved that in the end one particular character

 

was able to redeem himself. I liked Richard a lot towards the end.

However, I don´t think I understood everything that was going on in this book to its fullest. The writing style is a difficult one and it took me some time to get used to it. I think I got the majority of it, but I´ve got the feeling that this book might be a perfect one to reread it at some point. And I will be doing that by listening to the audiobook.

 

And at some point I might pick up the second book in the series as well, mainly because I want to revisit these characters.
