Customer reviews

By Rachael Wilkinson 06 Jul 2011 3

I very much enjoyed this book.

I found it a bit slow in starting but not too boring. However, it really picks up in the middle and has a great ending.

I found alot of the information in the beginning of the book that originally bored me a bit or i thought was not all that important actually did contribute to it ending as well as it did.

I plan to read more Kate Mosse in the near future as I was impressed with what this book had to offer
