    " An amazing story set in the time of Queen Elizabeth rule following the break of King Henry VIII. Some felt the crown needed protected from suspicion of a plot to overthrow the legitimacy of the queens rule. It reflects on the various forms of religious persecution taking place in that era of time. I was able to make predictions at various times within the book that I will not state here as it will spoil the fun but I was pleased to find that as I continued to read my predictions about certain aspects of the story were correct. It is a book about valor,duty,honor,moral character and the power we wield through the station of life both common and those of elevation. It reflects on the plight of woman's suffrage and I thoroughly enjoyed the read. "

    " I really enjoyed this book. I had never heard of the author before and acquired it in a pile of cast-off books from a relative, but I found it a compelling read. The depiction of 16th century London was believable and I liked the way Cecil, Walsingham and their henchmen were written as ruthless as characters in any modern political thriller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret Jones | 2/3/2014

    " Very intriguing story which started well and ended on a high. It, however didn't hold my attention on the middle. Loved the theme of the novel and generally liked the style of writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 George Kwiatkowski | 1/30/2014

    " Great historical fiction set in 16th century England. Very engrossing, stayed up late to finish the book. "

    " I enjoy history and anything about conspiracies. Sacred Treason had just that. I recommend! "

    " It was ok but not great. I chose it because I like C J Sansome's Shardlake series. This didn't engage me either in terms of the characters or the plot. It just didn't come to life for me and I think I finished it more out of a sense of duty, (I very rarely fail to finish a book), than because I cared about the characters or wanted to know what happened next. "

    " Loved it! Couldn't put it down. Can't wait for The Roots of Betrayal. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carolin | 12/2/2013

    " If I had read this book alone I wouldn't have finished it. The story was okay but none of the characters were interesting enough for me to care about them and I skipped a lot towards the end. Forgettable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frostik Dar | 12/2/2013

    " this was a freebie Nook book from Barnes & Noble -- so didn't expect much. but lo! it was lots of fun, and surprisingly true to history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam Scott | 9/30/2013

    " I'm hooked, can't wait for the next book in this series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sherry Pence | 9/19/2013

    " I made it to chapter 7 before giving up totally on this one. Boring! Seriously boring! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lynne Methot | 8/27/2012

    " didn't think it would ever end. too long. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy Talley | 6/14/2012

    " It was very suspenseful and at time nail-biting. The characters were very real, and I think it would make a pretty good movie. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mandy | 3/25/2012

    " The plot was ok, imagery was good but talk about dragging it out. I got so bored, I started reading another book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 12/15/2011

    " Read on Kindle. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 10/20/2011

    " The scholarship here is top-notch (as befits the author's background) and refreshingly avoids the information-download style that so commonly pervades the fiction of historians, but the action elements definitely operate on Hollywood logic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 6/14/2011

    " This is a fascinating look into historical fiction. One of those "what if" this was happening in the background. Ah, the rich grounds of Elizabethan and Reformation/CounterReformation times to inspire mystery, espionage, and conflict of faiths and beliefs. Well done. "
