Excellent short story collection
Though Sister Fidelma has appeared in four novels, she has also starred in fifteen short stories that make up this wonderful anthology, HEMLOCK AT VESPERS. Peter Tremayne places his stories in publication date order that allows the audience to observe how much the author and the character have matured. Readers learn why Sister Fidelma changes her references to herself, dissociates from a religious community, and how that impacts the seventh century amateur sleuth. <p>All the stories in this anthology are well written and self-contained as the essence of the main character comes alive each time while retaining a consistent level of excellent storytelling. That enables the audience to understand and empathize with Sister Fidelma. The stories also provide incredible insight into ¿Dark Ages¿ Ireland without slowing down the pacing. Mr. Tremayne is one the leaders of the historical mystery whether the plot is full-length novel (see VALLEY OF THE SHADOW) or a short story. <P>Harriet Klausner

This version of a well written collection is utterly destroyedc- with misspellings, grammatical errors, and nonsensical words. If you enjoy the Fidelma stories, don't buy this Nook version unless the editors replace the room full of chimps with some real people who can read English!

Great Sister Fidel a short stories
I don't usually like short stories but these stories were true to Sister Fidelma. These stories filled in some gaps concerning Sister Fidel a. I would recommend these stories to any Sister Fidelma fan or any one who wants to give her a try, they are great mysteries in ancient Ireland. I would recommend this to any one who likes historical fiction stories.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
