In the Tudor Court of 1518, your friends and enemies can be one and the same...During the annual celebration of the Order of the Garter, Sir Michael Devereaux arrives in King Henry VIII's court on a mission for his benefactor. The celebration's endless feats and sumptuous women delight the charismatic newcomer, who becomes captivated by the enigmatic Princess Renee of France. But evil, it seems, has followed Michael to the court. Shortly after his arrival, an unknown killer claims several victims, including the Queen's lady-in-waiting, and the powerful Cardinal Wolsey asks Michael to help with the investigation. As he searches for the killer, Michael is haunted by disturbing images of the victims - flashes of violence that lead him to doubt his own sanity. Michael soon realizes that the key to solving the crime is connected to both the Pope's Imperial vault in Rome and a mystery from Michael's own past - revealing a secret that is so damning, it could forever alter the future of mankind.
It has been quit a few years since I had read an historical novel. It took me awhile at first to get reacquainted with the language from this time period. After I had successfully accomplished this, the book unfolded at a rapid rate. The description was flawless for the period. The dialogue could be overwhelming at times but was beautifully written. I found the plot to be one of the best features of the story. There were several twists and turns that I was not expecting. One of the twists being paranormal activity in this book.
Over all I was highly impressed with this authors writing and style. Would definitely like to read her works in the future. If you are of the mind to enjoy a little paranormal features with historical settings, dialogue, etc., this would be a definite purchase for you. You will not be disappointed.
