4.0 out of 5 stars Four Stars, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: When William Came (Kindle Edition)
Fascinating and witty as ever with Saki - the ending seems a little unconvincing, though.

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Evocative, 25 Mar 2014
Cassandra Clark has the gift of evoking a lost medieval world vividly for the 21st century; well-researched and well-written, this promises to become a classic series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 25 Mar 2014
I am not generally a great 'crime'/'mystery' fan, but this book was brilliant - it holds your attention all the way through, and the Abbess herself is a splendid creation - another memorable figure in the genre to rival even the likes of Mr. Holmes himself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant evocation of a lost age!, 20 Sep 2011
I thoroughly enjoyed this latest instalment in the Abbess of Meaux series, in which the redoubtable Hildegard finds herself mixed up with all kinds of sinister shenanigans in the great medieval city of York during the festival of Corpus Christi. Things get pretty serious, and there are moments when you fear for the the heroine's life, but, resourceful as ever, she comes through triumphant, though still secretly love-lorn, at the end. If you know York, still a medieval walled city to this day, the book is tremendously evocative, but even if you don't, it brilliantly brings to life this rich and complex place at the height of its medieval splendour. I would recommend the book to lovers of historical and crime fiction alike.
