4.0 out of 5 stars Informative adventure, 17 Oct 2008
This review is from: A Vigil of Spies (Paperback)
Ok, I'm coming at this from a point of view that will probably infuriate a lot of fans of Candace. I haven't read any other books in the series so its with a relatively fresh point of view to which I write my review.

Candace without doubt is well versed in the 14th century with the details that are passed on within the texts informative, interesting and above all done in such a way that there is no info dump as happens too often in many books. She's also skilled in putting a tale together in a manner where its not easily predicted by the reader along with the twists and turns unveiled over the course of the investigation undertaken by the principle protagonist who is an interesting character to be around, the fears and emotional aspect works very well allowing the reader to establish a hook with Owen and allows the reader to feel the cold knife edge at every bit of peril, caring about the life expectancy of a number of the characters within the text. I will definitely keep an eye out for more of Candace's work and will at some point, when time allows, read the rest of the series.

Why would that frustrate Candace Robb veteran readers? Perfectly good review - do try the others though, they are wonderful.
