Bookish conversation with author Samantha Wilcoxson.

This medieval mystery seemed focused on developing characters to set up the rest of the series. I did like Faucon de Ramis and his unwilling assistant, Brother Edmund, but the action was slow moving. The author demonstrated firm knowledge of the late 12th century, and I enjoyed the characters enough to add the second book in this series to my TBR in the hope that things will move along at a faster pace now that everyone has been introduced.
The most intriguing part of this novel are the few pages at the very beginning and end where we are given sneak peeks of a disturbing child killer. I do want to read more about this guy!
