Review: The Summer Of The Danes

The Summer Of The DanesThe Summer Of The Danes by Ellis Peters
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was an unusual volume in The Cadfael Chronicles in that the murder – there’s always a murder! – was not central to the storyline. Indeed, the murder was just barely tangential to the story, which was focussed not in the usual setting of the Abbey of St Peter and St Paul in Shrewsbury but in rather in western Wales.

Invasion, betrayal, and the conflicts of honour and duty, all feature in the wonderfully crafted and marvellously narrated story. As usual, and as we’ve come to expect from Ellis Peters, a masterpiece of good ole fashioned story telling.
