The Sister Fidelma books give the readers a rattling good yarn. But more than that, they bring vividly and viscerally to life the fascinating lost world of the Celtic Irish. I put down The Spider's Web with a sense of satisfaction at a good story well told, but also speculating on what modern life might have been like had that civilisation survived (Ronan Bennett)

'Atonement of Blood' continues on from The Seventh Trumpet (Sister Fidelma Mysteries 23) and concerns the unravelling of a mystery involving Fidelma's brother Colgu, a battle fought at Cnoc Aine and the continued machinations of members of the Ui Fidgenti to destabilise the Kingdom after a four year peace. That's it for spoilers. Tremaynes knowledge and love for Ireland of this period shines through the pages, although this is explored with a pragmatists eye, as even Tremayne recognises that although Irish law was comprehensive there were those who sought to circumvent it and interpret it to their own ends. Even Fidelma in this outing turns a blind eye at the end in a rare utilitarian act for a committed dalaigh.
This is another good read, lots of action and plenty of twists, turns and red-herrings. As always when reviewing books that are well into a series (This is No. 24) this is the better for having read the series, as the relationships between characters is now well developed and regular readers will pick up on the nuances, that said, this can be read as a standalone novel.
This was a great book and fully came up to my expectations.

I was worried when I started to read this as I thought it might be the end for Fidelma's Brother but thank goodness all was ok. Brilliant again. Thank you.Published 17 months ago by Doreen Clark
