Book Review -------- Medieval Challenge
This is my first book in the Medieval Challenge.
'Mistress of the Art of Death', by Ariana Franklin.
I found it a little hard to get into at first but after the first 50+ pages I was hooked and couldn't put it down.
Set in Cambridge in 1170 it follows Adelia Aguilar , a doctor, in her quest to find the murderer of children. These children were killed in a hideous manner and in searching for their murderer she uncovers a cavern of evil.
The killings are portrayed in a graphic way, and the people of Cambridge stunned by the brutality.
A great read. Ariana Franklin is a new author to me but not for long as I am on the lookout for her subsequent novels.
