Book Seventeen: Mistress of the Art of Death

Mistress of the Art of Death, Ariana Franklin

I really had a hard time getting through this book. I did like it, I honestly did. But the beginning really dragged along for a while. Too much medieval talk that was a bit sludgy. The plot is essentially a female CSI-type in 12th century England, solving the "case of the dead children" at the behest of King Henry II. I enjoyed reading about a "strong female" character in the olden days, but at times it felt like a bit too much. For all the complaining, though, it's not really that bad, and a nice little mystery, too. Throw in some bodice ripping stuff, and it was generally an entertaining thing to be reading for the past three weeks.
