Read full description of the books:
A richly detailed, almost indecently thrilling mystery... NYT Book Review; The attention to historical detail is flawless...Denver Post; Adelia is a fascinating creation... USA Today
What a great great historical series this is. Full of atmosphere, character, history, a sense, taste, smell and feel of the dark ages... in the times and presence of the characterful Henry II Plantagenet... and the independent and self-made, own minded wonderful Adelia, Mistress of the Art of Death. A whole set of colorful characters that come alive when you read this series. And great stories, vivid, dark, bleak, intelligent and heartwarming at the same time! Way above the average historical fiction, 4.5 for me. And such a pity that I only have one more book to go in this series.... Highly recommended & more to follow!
Here's the story: England 1176, beautiful tranquil Glastonbury Abbey, according to legend, the last resting place of King Arthur - has been burned to the ground. The arsonist remains at large but the fire has uncovered the hidden skeletons of a man and a woman... could these be Arthur and Guinevere? King Henry II hopes so. Struggling to put down a rebellion in Wales, Henry wants proof, so he can stamp out the Celtic rebellion for good. He sends for his mistress of the art of death Adelia Aguilar to examine the bones.... and so the story begins....
Note, this book is also known under an alternative title: Relics of the dead (more of Franklin's books have alternative titles I noticed)
