#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER "Absorbing . . . impossible to resist." -The Washington Post As Europe erupts, can one young spy protect his queen? #1 New York Times bestselling author Ken Follett takes us deep into the treacherous world of powerful monarchs, intrigue, murder, and treason with his magnificent new epic, A Column of Fire. A thrilling read that makes the perfect gift for the holidays. In 1558, the ancient stones of Kingsbridge Cathedral look down on a city torn apart by religious conflict. As power in England shifts precariously between Catholics and Protestants, royalty and commoners clash, testing friendship, loyalty, and love. Ned Willard wants nothing more than to marry Margery Fitzgerald. But when the lovers find themselves on opposing sides of the religious conflict dividing the country, Ned goes to work for Princess Elizabeth. When she becomes queen, all Europe turns against England. The shrewd, determined young monarch sets up the country's first secret service to give her early warning of assassination plots, rebellions, and invasion plans. Over a turbulent half century, the love between Ned and Margery seems doomed as extremism sparks violence from Edinburgh to Geneva. Elizabeth clings to her throne and her principles, protected by a small, dedicated group of resourceful spies and courageous secret agents. The real enemies, then as now, are not the rival religions. The true battle pitches those who believe in tolerance and compromise against the tyrants who would impose their ideas on everyone else-no matter what the cost. Set during one of the most turbulent and revolutionary times in history, A Column of Fire is one of Follett's most exciting and ambitious works yet. It will delight longtime fans of the Kingsbridge series and is the perfect introduction for readers new to Ken Follett.

Autorenporträt
Ken Follett, geboren 1949 in Cardiff, Wales, gehört zu den erfolgreichsten Autoren der Welt. Mit seinen Romanen "Die Säulen der Erde" und der Fortsetzung "Die Tore der Welt", die beide auch erfolgreich verfilmt wurden, führte er das Genre des Historischen Romans zu neuer Beliebtheit. Nach einigen Thrillern hat er mit "Sturz der Titanen", "Winter der Welt" und "Kinder der Freiheit" eine groß angelegte Chronik des 20. Jahrhunderts vorgelegt, in der er die Geschichte von fünf miteinander verbundenen Familien aus Amerika, Deutschland, Russland, England und Wales erzählt. Im September 2017 erschien sein lang erwarteter historischer Roman "Das Fundament der Ewigkeit", eine Fortführung seiner weltbekannten Kingsbridge-Romane. Sein neuer Roman führt uns in die Zeit der Angelsachsen zurück.
