Phil Rickman

I found this book at a great bookstore in Columbus and had to read it. I like to read books set in the time of the Tudors. I’ve been fascinated by that time period since I was a child. This story is slightly unusual since John Dee is the main character.

It has all the fun elements of John’s interaction with Queen Elizabeth, her secret romance with Dudley, a quest to Glastonbury to look for King Arthur’s bones, a murder mystery, and a beautiful herbalist.

It was a fast-paced story which I enjoyed. Thankfully there’s a sequel which I liked just as much.  I’m hoping there will be more in this series.

I’m also interested in reading Rickman’s series featuring Merrily Watkins. It looks entrancing as well.
