The Angel’s Mark (Goodreads)
I only got halfway through this one before giving up on it. It was very slow and the mystery didn’t grab me at all.
However, the writing was very literary and the characters did capture my heart. The feel of the book was very bleak, which to me is a sign of strong writing, as you really felt a part of those historical, hard times. The detail was amazing and the book was clearly well-researched. It just needed a little work on plot.
It’s a shame this didn’t work for me, as the Tudor times are one of my favourite eras, especially when Elizabeth I was on the throne. I would still give this author another chance with a different book, as the writing was beautiful.
The cover is gorgeous and matches the feel of the book well.
