Thirteenth-century Bohemia is a dangerous place for a girl, especially one as odd as Mouse, born with unnatural senses and an uncanny intellect. Some call her a witch. Others call her an angel. Even Mouse doesn't know who - or what - she is. But she means to find out.
When young King Ottakar shows up at the Abbey wounded by a traitor's arrow, Mouse breaks church law to save him and then agrees to accompany him back to Prague as his personal healer. Caught in the undertow of court politics at the castle, Ottakar and Mouse find themselves drawn to each other as they work to uncover the threat against him and to unravel the mystery of her past. But when Mouse's unusual gifts give rise to a violence and strength that surprise everyone - especially herself - she is forced to ask herself: Will she be prepared for the future that awaits her?
A heart-thumping, highly original tale in the vein of Elizabeth Kostova's The Historian, Bohemian Gospel heralds the arrival of a fresh new voice for historical fiction.
Where does Bohemian Gospel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I have not enjoyed reading a book as much as Bohemian Gospel! I am so very happy it is on Audible now. The story is engaging, the history is engaging! I looked forward to the second book in the series and was not disappointed. Can't wait for the release on audible!
Who was your favorite character and why?
Mouse is my favorite, of course. Her story is incredible. She is heroic and a solid character.
Any additional comments?
I hope this story continues and continues! Thank you Audible!
