Product description

1942, Nazi-occupied France. Sandrine, a spirited and courageous nineteen-year-old, finds herself drawn into a Resistance group in Carcassonne - codenamed 'Citadel' - made up of ordinary women who are prepared to risk everything for what is right. And when she meets Raoul, they discover a shared passion for the cause, for their homeland, and for each other. But in a world where the enemy now lies in every shadow - where neighbour informs on neighbour; where friends disappear without warning and often without trace - love can demand the highest price of all.

A thrilling adventure and a truly epic love story -- Kate Saunders THE TIMES With her Languedoc trilogy Kate Mosse has firmly established herself as the go-to girl for blockbuster time-slip romantic adventure ... Citadel, the final book of the three, follows Labyrinth and Sepulchre and is epic in scope ... It's a proper adventure story, engrossing and packed with suspense at every turn of the page. METRO A remarkable achievement DAILY EXPRESS Resistance fighters risk their lives to smuggle exiles across the border to Spain in this fantastically detailed and well-researched read. Thrilling! ESSENTIALS The Codex-related climax works shatteringly well - mainly because Mosse writes it with such conviction DAILY MAIL Nobody beats Mosse for local texture and atmosphere. As the call to the resistance sounds over the land, she orchestrates a shattering climax THE SUNDAY TIMES Full of action, romance and supernatural mystery, so it cracks along at a great pace, making it an engaging and easy read EMERALD STREET (daily email by Stylist magazine) As with it's predecessors, the deeper theme of Citadel is the fight against the evil of intolerance. Mosse's descriptions of the majestic stone ruins of Carcassonne and the idyllic landscape around it shimmer with authenticity INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY This book is a wonderful, epic tale of passion, loyalty, courage and betrayal that grips the reader from the first sentence to the very last heartbreaking chapter (be warned, tissues may be required). WOMAN'S WAY (Ireland) Mosse's writing is so evocative you can almost feel the Midi sun on her characters necks, as well as the frantic beating of their hearts MAIL ON SUNDAY a deeply satisfying literary adventure, brimming with all the romance, treachery and cliffhangers you would expect from the genre. It is also steeped in a passion for the region, its history and legends, and that magical shadow world where the two meet THE OBSERVER
