I discovered this book purely by chance, and found a wealth of other books to read! I'm now one of SKPenman's biggest fans! This is a wonderful medieval mystery that lets you into the heart of Eleanor of Aquitaine's (my favorite character from history) kingdom with a unique perspective. The whole storyline is interesting and refreshing. So refreshing, in fact, that when I lent this and The Queen's Man to a friend who was searching for something new to read she totally fell in love with it. Now we're both drilling book stores for information on when the third book will be released! We want to see what will happen to the fascinating Justin, his mysterious father, and his sultry lover, along with all of his friends (and enemies-including Prince John) at the castle and inn. This is a truly well-written book, as are all of Penman's. You'll never want to put it down- trust me, you'll be dying for the third book, too!
