A breathtaking and sweeping epic of a family at its breaking point, Devil's Brood shows how Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine-two monumental figures once bound by all-consuming love-became the bitterest of adversaries... A.D. 1172. Henry II's three eldest sons conspire against him and align themselves with his greatest enemy, King Louis of France, but it's Eleanor of Aquitaine's involvement in the plot to overthrow her husband that proves to be the harshest betrayal. As a royal family collapses and a marriage ends in all but name, the clash between these two strong-willed and passionate souls will have far-reaching and devastating consequences throughout Christendom.
