    The Huntsman’s Tale, Oxford Medieval Mystery #3

    by Dee

    The Huntman’s Tale is the third instalment in the Oxford Murder Mystery series by Ann Swinfen. Learning from the previous one, there weren’t bodies laying around Oxford or mysteries to be solved. It was only the case of Emma running away from Godstow Abbey to get away from her stepfather. But as I said, the ending didn’t seem very conclusive. I think it’s temporary, and therefore, anything else can happen, especially if Sir Anthony is destined to die sometimes in this book or the following ones.

    The Novice’s Tale, Oxford Medieval Mystery #2

    The Novice’s Tale is the second instalment in the Oxford Murder Mystery series by Ann Swinfen. By the title, I pretty much guess that my suspicion about something from the first book will be confirmed. I refrain from reading other reviews prior to reading this one because I’m afraid my suspicion will be prematurely confirmed. Whatever that means, Dee. I have learned from the first book that the title cannot mean that the novice kills someone.

    The Unquiet Bones – Hugh de Singleton #1

    The Unquiet Bones is the first book in the series of Hugh de Singleton adventure in the late 1300s Bampton, England. I don’t remember how I found Melvin Starr books, but I did. Probably Goodreads’ algorithm suggested his book to my shelves when I was browsing around. The title and the cover intrigued me to find this book, and I was a little bit excited to realise that this is yet another historical crime fiction series right up my alley.

    The Assassin’s Prayer

    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.

    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.

    Mistress of the Art of Death

    A best friend, Anne, gave me a copy of MISTRESS OF THE ART OF DEATH as a birthday gift. Perhaps the title spoke something to her that reminded her of me. It was a perfect gift, thank you, and I still enjoyed the book. This is a re-read of MISTRESS OF THE ART OF DEATH by Ariana Franklin, nom de plume of the late Diana Norman.

    Kingsbridge 0: The Evening & The Morning

    In the beginning, when I decided to read again, I was browsing through my Goodreads profile to check what review I had written about PILLARS OF THE EARTH and my eyes caught an announcement that Ken Follett is releasing his latest book: a prequel to PILLARS OF THE EARTH. Without intending to sound ungrateful for the literary blessing that is Ken Follett, still, how can he write a prequel after all these years with Kingsbridge series?
