“Absorbing . . . impossible to resist.” —The Washington Post

As Europe erupts, can one young spy protect his queen? International 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.

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.

    To learn European history through a wonderfully woven narrative, Follett's Kingsbridge almost seems real. Rich vibrant characters and perfect story craft make this and the other two volumes a pleasure to read. The injection of romance, spy craft, and political intrigue are the icing on the cake! Such a reading pleasure!!

  • Exceptional Read

    After reading Pillars of the Earth I did not think I would ever read such a compelling story again until Mr Follett came out with the sequel, World Without End. Again, such a great read that I could not imagine it being eclipsed, yet Mr Follett managed another sequel, 200 years further into the future of Kingsbridge that is just as admirable for bringing the reader right into the midst of civil unrest and intrigue of a stormy time in history. I highly recommend reading the ENTIRE Kingsbridge series, not once or twice, but repeatedly as the story is massive and great. ☺️
