Rejoin Jack and Aliena who are now grown up and matured as they fight to save Kingsbridge from the ruthless William Hamleigh. William does not take Aliena’s romantic rejection lightly and threatens not only her life but the lives of her family and friends. Despite the threat they continue their work on a spectacular cathedral to attract pilgrims and visitors for their thriving market, which promises prosperity for their small, medieval town. But as William Hamleigh becomes earl and joins forces with the merciless bishop Waleran he has only one goal: Kingsbridge must fall!
Featuring over 200 hand-painted backgrounds created with the help of an expert in Medieval history, The Pillars of the Earth has an artistic storybook quality furthered by its stunning orchestral soundtrack performed by the FILMharmonic Orchestra in Prague.
This second installment accelerates and continues the dramatic, mature and emotional storyline that began with the first book. Many dynamics come to a head with violent conflicts and even death. The player will have unprecedented influence in this beloved story, even sometimes deciding who lives and who dies.
