Praise for The Armor of Light
“Ken Follett a master storyteller…His works of historical fiction have made him a legend…Follett’s latest marks the end of a storytelling journey that spans a thousand years. The Armor of Light is also the final entry in his Kingsbridge series.”
—Jeff Glor, CBS
“We can’t stop turning the pages…it is Follett’s generosity and adeptness with historical detail and nimble depictions of technical matters that set this book, like its predecessors, above mere historical melodrama.”
—The Washington Post
“A treat for fans of historical fiction.”
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“This epic canvas holds a mélange of relationships which all work out exactly as they should while Follett brings Kingsbridge up to the Regency era.”
“An impressive and immersive epic.”
