Company of Liars by Karen Maitland

January 15, 2016

Hello, Internet.
So, Alan Rickman died and I have, therefore, been watching Sense & Sensibility and crying a bunch today, so I don’t have a ton of focus for other things today, but I didn’t want to make you think I didn’t love you anymore.
So, here is my most recent 6 Second Book Review:
Company of Liars is the story of nine strangers who have been thrown together while they try to escape the Black Plague in medieval England. As in The Cantebury Tales, each of the strangers has a story to share, although one of them is hiding a very dangerous secret.
mistressIf you’re in the mood of other dark medieval stories, I highly recommend The Mistress of the Art of Death by Ariana Franklin. This novel focuses on Adelia, a doctor from the University of Salerno, who has been tasked by Henry II to find the person who has been killing children in Cambridge.
I also very much enjoyed the Brother Cadfael series by Ellis Peters.

Are there any books you think I should review for my 6 Second series?
