Review

"Vibrant characters, unusual plot, and vivid descriptions of life in twelfth-century England make for a period mystery with immense appeal" Booklist on The Paths of the Air "The whole series belongs in any collection where historicals are popular" Library Journal on Fortune Like the Moon "The murders are smartly conceived and plotted; the Kentish countryside is vividly described; and Josse and Helewise are fresh and appealing detectives" Booklist on Fortune Like the Moon"

Format: Hardcover
This book was excellent, until the end!
Having Helewise coming to terms with her church, and the journeys of Sir Josse to France, and all the drama of the goddess and the tension with de Loup was fantastic, that is why I have rated it 3 stars.
But then it went to the end. I won't spoil it but when you get to the bit where it says '10 years later' it is ridiculous, it would never happen!
Spoiled it for me totally. Until then it was fantastic, like the other books. So only 3 stars for this one, the others have always been 5 star.

Format: Hardcover
Although sad to feel that this could be the last Hawkenlye book, I couldn't stop myself from reading this story in one sitting! It gave me the feeling that Alys Clare had planned out the whole series before evr she wrote the first one! All are entrancing but this one draws all the characters together in an enjoyable way. The fate of Joanna was surprising, and somewhat sad, but it blended well with the fates of the rest; I was very happy indeed over the conclusion of the relationship between Josse and Helewise, about time! If only there were to be more!!!!!!!
