    What did you like most about The Assassin's Prayer?

    The 13th century came alive, I have now completed all 4 books, all as good as the first.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Adelia was magnificent


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    These books do not build up to a scene, they start right at the beginning.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was emotionally on Adelia's side, her life, loves and struggles were understandably difficult.


    Any additional comments?

    So sad that as the author has now died that there will be no further books of this standard

    Story
    "Devastated - No more Adelia..."
    Where does The Assassin's Prayer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's right up there with the best...and the cliffhanger of an ending is made even more poignant now that the author will write no more.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of the characters are fully fleshed out and Diana Bishop's narration certainly does them justice. I can't pick a favourite - perhaps Rowley? No one is perfect, the author sacrificed perfection for living, breathing, doubting, fallible, joyful characters. They are my friends and I was horribly sad to say goodbye to them.


    What about Diana Bishop’s performance did you like?

    Having listened to Ms Bishop's narration of 'Katherine' by Anya Seton (one of my all time favourite books) and finding it somewhat dull, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed her characterisation and story-telling in the Mistress of the Art of Death series. It may have been that I had read 'Katherine' so many times that I had a very fixed idea of the book's population and was shocked to realise that these people may be interpreted differently by others! However, coming to this series completely fresh made Ms Bishop's interpretation the blueprint for the characters and now I couldn't imagine them any other way.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end...the terrible, wonderful, uncertain end. I wept with frustrated hope.


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful books by an author I came to far too late.
