Reminiscent of London by Edward Rutherford with the detail to historical settings and mannerisms yet, this book is much more playful and easier to read through. The characters are so much fun and easy to fall in love with. The story is weaved so brilliantly it had me second guessing what I always thought the end to be, and did not disappoint me when I did reach the end. I had a hard time putting this book down and only wish it would not end. The escape into historical London, with both lovable villains and rough heroes was a fantastic delight. I wasn't entirely sure who I was voting for by the end, but really loved the journey of the tale. I love historical fiction and fantasy and this book was able to capture both, with the setting and people & add a fantastical substance as the main plot, without compromising excitement, enjoyment, and detail. Highly recommended for a brief escape from the current world.

It took a little bit to get into this one then Dissolution. Once I got hooked it ws impossible to put the book done and I read 250 pages in a day and a half.

The 2nd book in the Matthew Shardlake novels. This one too is a masterpiece. It is every bit as historicaly accurate and suspense filled as the first, the third is Sovereign.
