The Faithful Dead by Alys Clare

The Faithful Dead - Alys Clare

Series: Hawkenlye Mysteries #5

 

I'm not sure why the reliance on magic bugs me so much on these books but it does. I think part of it is that there doesn't seem to be much investigating going on. A big chunk of the book was actually a flashback to Josse's father's crusading time. And then stuff just happens to Josse and there are reveals due to magical inspiration or something and...yeah. The whole thing wasn't very satisfying.

 

I keep reading these books because I do like the characters but I always seem to expect the books to be something that they're not.
