Follet's long-awaited prequel to the "Pillars of the Earth" series is well-conceived, rich in mundane details, and action-packed. Some of the moral questions raised by his characters seem either too distinct (unrepentant evil at the heart of a character) or alternatively, too nuanced by 21st-century relativism, but they don't interfere with the sheer enjoyment of the read.
