The Assassin’s Prayer book is a direct continuation of RELICS OF THE DEAD. It is with much sadness I embarked on this fourth instalment of Ariana Franklin’s series. This book marks the eighth year of Adelia being in England, serving Henry II as his mistress of the dead. I have enjoyed the previous three books without fail and was mesmerised by Ariana’s writing styles, characters developments, storyline.
RELICS OF THE DEAD is the third instalment of Adelia’s series, still stuck in Henry II’s England. I am still baffled by the decision of publishing this book under a different title of GRAVE GOODS in the US. Perhaps it’s best for me not to know or wonder why.
THE DEATH MAZE is the second instalment of Adelia Aguilar adventure in the realms of Henry II. As was described in the first book, Adelia is a sort of forensic doctor originated from Salerno who was assigned for a job in England under the order of William of Sicily by request of Henry II. After solving her first set of murders, she was made to stay by Henry II—someone who knows his asset—and decided to move to the fenland with Gyltha and a new dog, Ward.
