Day 4 - Favorite book of your favorite series
One of my favorite series is written by Alan Gordon. I've mentioned him before regarding his historical mysteries: a guild of jesters/fools as medieval CIA. The fifth book in the series is called AN ANTIC DISPOSITION. Here is a description:
In 1204 A.D., the Fools' Guild is on the run from an enraged Pope Innocent III and the Papal troops he's dispatched to destroy them. Now, hidden in their secret enclave deep within the Black Forest, the fools, troubadours and novitiates, including the jester couple Theophilos and Claudia, come together for their evening gathering to hear Father Gerald, their ancient leader, tell one of the greatest stories from the history of the Guild. It begins in Denmark, during a time of civil war when three men laid claim to the throne while a fourth watched and bided his time. Into the strategically crucial town of Slesvig, the Guild sends Terence of York, who is promptly dubbed Yorick by the Duke's young son, Amleth. What unfolds is a tale of treachery, tragedy and bloodshed that is the true story behind one of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies. But Father Gerald's history contains secrets never known to anyone outside the Guild, and as he recounts it, Theophilos feels a chill steal over his heart. For not even Father Gerald knows the ending of this story. But Theophilos does.
This was a wow book because it combined Hamlet and this series; it is done so well and had such emotional impact if you followed the series from the beginning.
