Présentation de l'éditeur

A medieval pilgrim harbours murderous intentions towards the King. Can Prioress Eleanor stop him before it's too late?

Prioress Eleanor of Tyndal is on a pilgrimage, looking for peace and respite, when rumours spread that King Edward is on his way, seeking God's blessing for his recent invasion of Wales. Lurking in this sacred place, however, is an assassin with murderous treason in mind. When a nun falls to her death from the priory bell tower, is it a tragic accident, or a sign of what's to come?

Although far away from the gossipy village of Tyndal, Eleanor, like a medieval Miss Marple, must use all her wit, wisdom and insight to unravel the clues to the case.

But can Eleanor expose the killer in their midst, or will she too fall victim to one who has made a covenant with hell?

HASH(0x972a2fcc) étoiles sur 5 ... in this series were a little bit of a disappointment to me 12 décembre 2013
Par RogerV - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
SPOILER ALERT the last couple books in this series were a little bit of a disappointment to me, not by how they were written or their plots, which were all very good. What bothered me was it seemed as if Brother Thomas's journey to acceptance of his sexual orientation was being abandoned or diverted. I'm happy to say that is definitely not the case in "Covenant With Hell." I won't go into detail, but something does "happen" when he meets another man who finds him very attractive and Thomas discovers that he feels something for the other man, but is still not totally sure about it, and of course their time together is way too short. Will they meet again? Possibly not, but I feel it's not impossible.

The other major milestone for Thomas is that he finally realizes that he is "over" his former best friend, lover, and betrayer. There are still numerous obstacles in his way, but it really seems to me as if the gates have opened for Thomas to finally discover who and what he is.

HASH(0x972a4234) étoiles sur 5 Not enough atmosphere, still good read 12 décembre 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I fell in love with this series. It stepped right into the shoes of the late author Margaret Frazer for me. This book did seem to be an excellent story line, great ideas and put well, however, and there was a however, it did not seem to set the sense of place and time that previous novels did so well.
A lot of the plot took place in conversation, either between characters or in their own minds. So this may not be bad, I speak only for myself, but I relish the details that can make a book come alive. The places, dress, food, feelings such as hunger or loss, the smells, sounds, sights all contribute to a genuine escapist novel. A book tha makes for a Much better experience than TV for those who enjoy reading.
I eagerly await the next in the series, hoping the author's expertise in the settings and character development will continue.

HASH(0x972a41f8) étoiles sur 5 Medieval Mystery with a bold sub-plot 29 décembre 2013
Par Cheryl M-M - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
There seemed to be less focus on the battle Brother Thomas endures with accepting his sexual orientation and feeling strong emotions for another man, despite the fact there is a new love interest in this book. That sub-plot is one that I found bold in previous books in regards to the era and felt the significance of it wandered a little into the side-lines of this book.
I wasn't overly keen on all the you will be scourged in hell for your sins, especially when it came to young women/girls. That is obviously a by-product of the religious piety in that particular era but it still felt overdone.
I think the fact that Thomas and Eleanor were taken out of their usual surroundings made this book in the series feel a little like the odd man out.
I received a copy of this book via NetGalley.

HASH(0x972a47d4) étoiles sur 5 Another fascinating glimpse of life in medieval England 10 janvier 2014
Par NC Reader - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I'm enjoying this series more with each new outing, largely due to Prioress Eleanor. She's a wonderful lead character, wise, strong, rational, devout, compassionate, but with a wickedly dry sense of humor at times. The daughter of a baron, she is a natural leader despite her young age and diminutive stature, and woe unto those who underestimate her!

She and Brother Thomas, another member of Tyndal Priory and her sidekick in murder investigations in past adventures, have come to the Walsingham shrines on pilgrimage. When a nun at their host priory falls to her death from the bell tower, rumors swirl about broken vows, scandalous rendezvous, and even more ominously, an assassination plot against the King, soon to visit the shrines. Eleanor and Thomas must race against time to sort through the townspeople and their fellow religious and pilgrims to find the traitor before they kill again.

Set in the 1270s in England, this series is obviously slower moving than a modern detective mystery or police procedural; Eleanor and Thomas must talk to every witness, every suspect, sift through every motive and opportunity without technology or modern methods. They must use their wits, faith and extensive knowledge of human nature to get into the heart and mind of every killer, and I find that fascinating.

I also love this series, as I did the Brother Cadfael, Dame Frevisse, Catherine Levendeur and Brother Athelstan mysteries (among others), for the outstanding research done by those authors and Priscilla Royal here, and ability to use that research to submerge a modern reader into the medieval mindset. It was such a different time, with the all-powerful role of the Church and King and nobility, the superstitions and fears, the belief that Satan and God and demons and angels and saints were interceding in average people's lives on a daily basis or a casual whim, bewitching them, beguiling them, saving or guiding them by turns. Life was often dirty, brutal and short - an ideal setting ripe for crimes of lust, violence, greed and fear, and a historical mystery buff's dream come true! This author and her cast of regular characters create a wonderful, thoughtful world I look forward to visiting again - recommended.
