    1. I have always wanted to learn about Saint Wenceslaus, the famed Good King who went out on the feast of Stephen in the Christmas carol So I was very excited to discover this novel about his life I bought it for my 13 year old son, but couldn t resist sneaking it into my room to read it myself I was not disappointed I read the entire book in two nights, both times staying up way later than I should have, because it was just too good to put down The story is told through the eyes of Wenceslaus s y [...]


    2. I love history, and this YA historical novel was refreshing It brought to life a Czech hero and saint previously unknown to me, Vaclav, called Winceslas in English I d heard the name Winceslas but didn t know anything about him The narrator, Poidevin, stole my heart immediately This child slave learned the kindness and generosity of Vaclav, who became his master and friend after a turn of political events Through Vaclav, Poidevin grew from a follower of his people s pagan teachings to one of Chr [...]


    3. Name C.A DavisGrade Age 6th Grade 12I liked the story line mainly because its about a boy servant Poidevin who lost his parents, and was forced into slavery at Castle Praha by infamous Dragomira, and later in the book was saved by her son Prince Vaclav.My four favorite characters are Prince Vaclav, Pribislava, Poidevin, and Zito I like Prince Vaclav because he believes in God, he is a very good mentor to Poidevin, and he is a kind and just ruler I like Pribislava because she knows Vaclav is tryi [...]


    4. I am the publicist for this author Filled with history, intrigue and stories of unwavering faith, this book is appropriate for both teens and adults Well researched for historical accuracy, this story of Good King Wenceslas includes a scene from the traditional carol A welcome addition to any library.


    5. You have undoubtedly heard, and maybe even sung, that Good King Wenceslas looked out on the Feast of Stephen, but do you know the true story of the real Wenceslas, or Vaclav as he was called in his native language It is during the Dark Ages, around A D 921, and the Duchy of Bohemia is ruled by the Premsylid dynasty Vaclav is fourteen years old His late grandfather Duke Borivoj, and his father, Duke Vratislav who was killed in battle with the Magyars, had been Christians, but his mother Dragomira [...]


    6. Treachery and Truth A Story of Sinners, Servants, and SaintsKaty Huth JonesTaken from my blog I have been so blessed by my relationship with Catholic Publishers Recently, one of my favorites, Pauline Books Media, sent me a few books to review The first one I read is called Treachery and Truth From the beginning of this book, I knew it was going to be spectacular I love historical fiction Stories that happened, but there is some creative license taken by an Author to fill in the gaps Treachery an [...]


    7. What to say A lot The only downside, I wanted battles I had the impression there would be a lot battles I also thought Dragomira would be the main villain, but Boleslav was the overarching main antagonist I don t think that s much of a spoiler The reader catches on early enough.But those are minor things This is a lot better than other history stuff I read This is NOT dry and dull I liked Vaclav, but the kid would always put himself needlessly in danger He would always say, God needs us to lov [...]


    8. This is a well written short historical novel The story is told through the eyes of a likable boy, Poidevin, who eventually becomes the servant of Duke Vaclav of Bohemia I enjoyed the way the author contrasts constantly the old but still alive pagan religion with Christianity, the newcomer religion in that part of the world at that time Poidevin s gradual coming to understand the new religion in a personal way is believably done The saintliness of Duke Vaclav, who was in fact declared a saint in [...]


    9. Treachery and Truth is the fascinating true story of Good King Wenceslas I, of course, knew the name thanks to the Christmas carol but I honestly never thought about the inspiration for this classic song but I m sure glad someone did Katy Huth Jones writes a beautiful story about this beloved Czech duke, who was a faithful Christian during a time filled with pagan gods, betrayal and war.The story is cleverly written through the eyes of the Duke s faithful servant, which was an intriguing way to [...]


    10. I won a copy of Treachery and Truth through a Facebook party and immediately handed it to my 13 year old son, who has long roamed the house singing the Good King Wenceslas carol, no matter the time of year Once he finished the book, I got a hold of it.While it is written for teens, I enjoyed it immensely I knew next to nothing about King Wenceslas Vaclav nor Bohemian history As seen through the eyes of his servant Poidevin, the reader glimpses the bravery, fortitude, humility, and generosity of [...]


    11. TREACHERY AND TRUTH by Katy Jones is well researched about a little known historical figure, Vaclav, known as King Wenceslas in the English Christmas carol Vaclav, a devout Christian, struggled against paganism in 929 AD in Bohemia Author Katy Jones sheds light on the fascinating political and religious intrigue of the Bohemian royalty There is also a helpful map of 10th century Central Europe and Cast of Characters and Places in the front of the novel This novel is appropriate and accessible fo [...]


    12. I enjoyed the book a lot the characters were well written and easy to relate to My only complaint was that the story ended much quicker than I would have liked, but then you can t change history


    13. Treachery and Truth is a Christian novella that explores the land of Bohemia and the fall of a beloved leader Told through the eyes of Poidevin, the narrative can be sometimes cumbersome but has an innocence that I find myself divided over.On one hand I understand why the story is simply told Poidevin wouldn t of been very educated and therefore wouldn t understand the complexity of the plots swirling around him On the other hand, his bleak beginnings and abusive new mistress would have required [...]
