Complicated and original plot line.

A reasonable start to a series: the characters are reasonably likeable, the description is pretty good and the story is readable though I did think the ending was rather sudden and unsatisfying. It rather felt like the author ran out of word count and just stopped without really tying up the loos...

Interesting idea to put a cloak and dagger novel in a medieval setting. I'm sure things like this happened but haven't seen too many novelists use it in their stories from this era. Author does a good job of developing the story and keeping you interested. And, of course, room is left...

I enjoyed the mystery at the heart of this novel, and it literally kept me guessing until the end because seconds before announcing the killer, Law assured said killer that he believed him when he said he was not the killer.
I did like Law as a protagonist, even though he seemed to stumble upon ev...

I don't know if it's something with conversion to Kindle, or if this was just poorly written and/or edited in other editions as well. There are a number of typos, and many places where a lack of commas made it hard to understand what the author was saying. I had no problem with the Scots words, h...
