This review is from: The Heresy of Dr Dee (THE JOHN DEE PAPERS Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
Dr Dee, and many of the other characters here, are of course actual historical people. The disconnect between our world and theirs is probably even greater than the author portrays, but nevertheless be has gone a good way to depict something of the mindset of the time, whilst still achieving a suitably convoluted plot with the necessary denouement. And, rather charmingly, a coda to tie up any loose ends. This is not a historical novel, but an adventure story set in a historical scene -actually a rather Gothic one. Nevertheless it is based on some real research. It is raised above quite a few others by thought-through structure, credible characters, and good writing. Not great literature, but well worth spending with.
