Увлекательные Ричерты: исторические романы об Эмме Нормандской

Настоящий талант – написать так, чтобы читатель, отлично знающий период истории и все спойлеры, все равно читал, не в силах оторваться. Патрисия Брайсвелл блестяще справилась с задачей в двух романах о жизни Эммы Нормандской, дочери и сестры герцогов Нормандии, английской и датской королевы. Ее жизнь была похожа на потрясающе увлекательный триллер. Первых два романа серии называются “Тень короны” и “Цена крови”. На русскоязычном рынке у книг нет шансов: их выпустили в говнообложках, намекающих на тупой асисяй с жезлами, хотя фактически это добротные, исторически достаточно достоверные и очень атмосферные исторические романы. Автор не зря корпела над англосаксонскими хрониками.

Эмма Нормандская была дочерью Ричарда 1 Бесстрашного и сестрой Ричарда 2 Доброго, герцогов Нормандии. В 15 лет, с целью укрепления международных свяей, как это всегда было в то время, ее выдали замуж за Этельреда Неразумного, одного из самых позорных монархов в истории Британии. Впрочем, тогда еще никто не знал, как эпично он обосрется.

У короля было 12 детей от прежней жены, причем старшему было столько же, как Эмме. Король относится к ней мерзко, никакой власти у нее нет, в стране она чужачка, наследников от нее не требуется, уже есть от прежней жены. Правда, чтобы заткнуть рот Нормандии, Этельред пришлось ее короновать. В книге Эмма показана, как молодая женщина, полная всяческих достоинств, добродетельная и исполненная чувства долга (чтоб читатель не подох от скуки, автор придумала ей романчик). В противовес ей – другой женский персонаж, леди Эльфгифа, дочь могущественного элдормена и тоже историческая личность. Она, кстати, лично у меня вызывала намного больше симпатий.

Фекам, здесь находился замок герцогов Нормандии и часть действия происходит здесь

Асисяя в книгах почти нет. Есть отношения королевы и короля, ее попытки хоть как-то руководить своей судьбой (у нее действительно практически не было власти) и судьбой своих детей, попытки объяснить, почему Этельред вел себя, как тупко, ужасно интересная история Эльфгифы, бесконечные набеги датчан, битвы и отношения короля с собственными подрощенными детьми.

Третью книгу автор обещает в этом году. А там же самое интересное! Да, все спойлеры в википедии, но это просто сухие факты. С нетерпением буду ждать.
