Review quote

SEPULCHRE is a compulsive, fantastical, historical yarn. Mosse's skill lies in the precise nature of her storytelling * OBSERVER * Ghosts, duels, murders, ill-fated love and conspiracy ... addictively readable * DAILY MAIL * [Mosse is] a powerful storyteller with an abundant imagination * DAILY TELEGRAPH * Brilliantly absorbing ... Richly evocative and full of compelling twists and turns * RED * Mosse's gifts for historical fiction are considerable ... Mosse does what good popular historical novelists do best - make the past enticingly otherworldly, while also claiming it as our own * INDEPENDENT * The best of the Brits ... Where Mosse really wins is in the writing department. She's the real role model there * DAILY MIRROR * Her narrative lyricism, beautifully drawn female characters and deft journey from the past to the present day, are also a cut above * SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY * A sure, deft momentum . . . the secrets begin to slip out thick and fast * Daily Express * The latest from the author of bestselling Labyrinth, this adventure will keep you engrossed * Eve *
