Epic story of one Huguenot family's struggle to survive the 17th century religious wars in France, which provides a detailed understanding of what it must have been like in those days. Thrilling plot with no obvious ending until the final denouement. A real tour de force. ( )

Second in the Burning Chambers series. The story begins in Puivert in 1572 where Minou and Piet are preparing to travel to Paris to attend a royal wedding. There is still unrest between the Huguenots and the Catholics. The visit all ends in disaster in the form of the St Bartholomew Day’s Massacre, the reappearance of an old enemy and the disappearance of a family member.

This is a fabulous sequel to the first book, The Burning Chambers. The story really draws you in and is rich in historical detail. There are some wonderful, well drawn characters who I really cared about and the odd one or two villains who I wanted to stick with the pointy end! It’s a beautifully written and researched tale of adventure and suspense. There’s danger and excitement on every corner. I read this book via the Pigeonhole app and was gripped from start to finish, eagerly awaiting each stave every day. I’m so looking forward to the next instalment in this superb series. ( )

While I was able to follow the plot and the history of the unsettled alliance between the Catholics and the Huguenots, readers will probably be more fully immersed in the story and the characters if the first book THE BURNING CHAMBERS is read before this one. Mosse was adept at bringing this story set in the late 1600’s to live and fleshing out all the intrigue murder, greed and religion that were important pieces of the story. ( )

Minou has come through the worst of the religious wars around Carcassone but still there is not religious tolerance. She and her husband Piet travel to Paris for the wedding of Henri of Navarre to Margot, daughter of the King. However the catholic faction are opposed to this union and the Duke Of Guise orders the assignation of a prominent Huguenot leading to a massacre. The Reydon's escape but lose all including their daughter Marta but make a new life in Amsterdam. However Piet's nemesis Vidal is still on their trail and they are never safe.
This is the second in a proposed quintet and I enjoyed it more than the first. Possibly because the majority of the setting is around the events of St Bartholomew's Day and 'La Reine Margot' is one of my favourite books. I felt that the initial chapter set in South Africa was unnecessary, it was not returned to and was not referenced at all. Whilst it was link with the first book and presumably part of the thread throughout the five novels it was pretty isolated here. However for the rest, Mosse is getting into her stride and this is more like pure historical fiction rather than the slightly magical earlier novels which I didn't find as convincing. ( )
