A WORLD OF HIGH IDEALS AND SAVAGE CRUELTY

As Tom and Philip meet so begins an epic tale of ambition, anarchy and absolute power. In a world beset by strife and enemies that would thwart their plans, they will stop at nothing to achieve their ambitions in a struggle between good and evil that will turn church against state, and brother against brother . . .

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.
