Recommended Matthew Reilly Books
The Leopard Hunts in Darkness. Rain Music. In answering this question, Reilly gave a great plug for his book. So very soon after meeting Matthew Reilly, I took the plunge and read my first ever Matthew Reilly book. The result? I enjoyed it immensely! In the opening of The Tournament, the ageing Queen Elizabeth I is dying and she finds herself reflecting on a great event that shaped her life as a young queen to be, a world chess tournament.
In , Princess Elizabeth and her loyal tutor Roger Ascham, made the pilgrimage to Constantinople to attend this revered event.
The Tournament is a book that uses a magnificent chess championship to highlight issues prevalent at the time, such as politics, philosophy, intrigue, spies, religion and culture.
I believe part of my enjoyment of The Tournament, came from the time period and the principle character.All in all, a strong entry by Reilly into the historical mystery genre.
And hired only the best talent to walk his boards, St Ignatius Loyola, Michelangelo, Ivan the Terrible, and a 13 year old Elizabeth Tudor, who is accompanied by her teacher, Roger Ascham, the real hero of the story, a Renaissance Sherlock Holmes.
Really enjoyed the medieval murder mystery I love the Name of the Rose too and even though I'm sure an historian might cringe at some of the historical largesse taken by the author it was rollicking fun as Reilly's books often are. However, the creative concept of this book was plenty enough for me to like this book. The Tournament, my first Matthew Reilly novel, was a welcome read and one that I had fun reading from cover to cover. Sometimes all you need is an entertaining easy read, that amuses and compels you by turn, and I think that is what The Tournament achieves in spades!
