Review: Suffer the Little Children

Suffer the Little Children (The Chronicles of Christoval Alvarez, #5)Suffer the Little Children by Ann Swinfen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The fifth book in the continuing Chronicles of Christoval Alvarez is another wonderful edition in the ongoing travails of the eponymous hero.

This edition sees Kit achieve professional success, contribute to the ongoing security of the sovereign and the state, assist in the recovery of a kidnapped child, and lose a mentor of great worth and great status. The ending of the volume leaves Kit in a state of uncertainty, but there has been much to celebrate over the course of the novel as well.

As usual, Ann Swinfen provides a wonderful narrative while drawing historical realities into the story as well. This combination of a powerful narrative, the historical setting and attention to detail, and a sympathetic hero makes for a great read and an engaging story.

Well worth reading.
