I picked this as I had watched Serenity. The series gives the back stories to the film and is great watching. All the characters are well dranw and the settings are interesting. Such as shame that the series was axed.
It was an interesting story and fascinating period of history. I enjoyed the book but did not like the style of writing. It was written in the first person and she was quite formal so it sometimes made it difficult to engage with the characters.
The story is well told and has enough suspense to keep you guessing until the end. It also has great atmosphere and I definately felt grateful that we dont live in the 17th century anymore. The background of withcraft and the other bbylines related to medicine were really interesting.
