Once again Candace Robb manages to draw you in a thrilling mystery. This superb well-written read here with absolutely fantastic characters that totally captivated and fascinated me. The character relationship between Archer and Geoffrey Chaucer is well developed. Chaucer is always an amusing thorn in Owen’s side. You will enjoy their banter and the way the author has created a splendid dialogue between the two of them them. Another sub character worth noting is the healer apprentice, Allisoun who questions her instincts and is still learning to follow her inner voice.

About the Author
I’m Candace Robb, a writer/historian engaged in creating fiction about the late middle ages with a large cast of characters with whom I enjoy spending my days. Two series, the Owen Archer mysteries and the Kate Clifford mysteries, are set in late medieval York. The Margaret Kerr trilogy is set in early 14th century Scotland, at the beginning of the Wars of Independence. Two standalone novels (published under pseudonym Emma Campion) expand on the lives of two women in the court of King Edward III who have fascinated me ever since I first encountered them in history and fiction.
I am a dreamer. Writing, gardening, walking, dancing, reading, being with friends—there’s always a dreaming element.
