The Three Lions of England, an Endeavor Press publication, is set in 1381 in Kent, England. It tells of three voices during this time. First is Wat Tyler. This man led the people in an uprising against King Richard II's government. He turns to the "second Lion" Jack Straw who wants to fight for what is considered an unjust system of taxation. The third is John Ball. He plans to lay siege on London in order to meet with King Richard, receive justice and execute the ministers who have led the corruption of the Kingdom.

This is a fascinating part of English history and the viewpoint through the book helped me to clarify the vision of each of these men. I caught myself contemplating things throughout the book.

The writing was good and, as I have mentioned, led me to look at this history from a new point-of-view. I was given this book by NetGalley and Endeavor Press in exchange for my honest review.
