Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles | 2/20/2014

    " Not a bad Cadfael mystery, but now that I'm working through them, not my favoritest. Still, the typical unexpected Ellis Peters plot twist made for an interesting (re-)read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Korynn | 2/10/2014

    " Ha, I read them out of order after all my talk. Well, this is another future plot hinging volume I suspect and mostly deals with a murder done far away in London. Cadfael dwells deeply on events that occurred way back in Vol 1 A morbid taste of bones and a virgin in the ice and is blessed for his concern. He also reneges a bit on his vows by seeking a little violent action in solving the mystery of the murderer in his backyard whose gross sin occurred in plot-rife London. Plus: young love (big surprise there) which gets a little violent too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ikonopeiston | 1/29/2014

    " This is one of the more poetic and mystical of the Cadfael stories. It twists and turns and reveals the answers with patience and skill. However, not all answers are possible. A lovely book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meredith | 1/25/2014

    " So many lovely themes - partisan violence,revenge,and repentance; miracles; hope vs guilt, love vs duty, generosity vs greed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 1/22/2014

    " This didn't grab me like I'd hoped. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth McDonald | 12/23/2013

    " I saw the ending coming with this one more than with some of the other Cadfael books I've read, I have to say. I still couldn't wait to pick it up each night before bed, though. As I read through the series in order, I'm enjoying the historical plots playing out in the background as King Stephen and Empress Matilda fight for the crown of England. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 stitchnsnitch | 12/17/2013

    " This was my favorite Cadfael mystery so far. I thought the pacing was perfect, and there were no "dry spots" that I felt like I wanted to skim. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandi | 12/8/2013

    " Comfort series for me with stellar narration, as usual, by Patrick Tull "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 12/5/2013

    " Another solid Brother Cadfael mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Philip | 11/24/2013

    " Guilty pleasure. I've read 11 of the books in the series and just started #12 (of 25, I think). A Benedictine monk/herbalist/ex-crusader/freethinker/detective that fights crime in the 12th century. A cowled crusader, if you will. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brigid | 11/21/2013

    " These are such easy mysteries to read and enjoy, lots of medieval atmosphere, interesting characters and character studies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine | 10/20/2013

    " a pleasant, gentle read, with great characters, and a wonderful look at the twelfth century; no huge mystery this time, but that's okay. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandy Hemmings | 7/23/2013

    " I like anything by Ellis Peters, and this was no exception! Like Betty Neels, she's one of my "comfort authors"! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arati | 6/2/2013

    " not one of the better Cadfeal mysteries. Couldn't warm up to the new characters though Cadfeal, Hugh and the old cast continues to charm. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lemongrass | 3/20/2013

    " One of the best of the Brother Cadfael stories. It's important to have read The Virgin in the Ice before reading this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 3/18/2013

    " A murder in another town, two young men, one walking barefoot across the country, and a love story. Entertaining, as alway.s "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arlene Allen | 1/18/2013

    " One of my favorites in this series!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghan | 12/13/2012

    " Beautiful story of redemption and high-quality writing, even if the format (three or so suspects, young love, Brother Cadfael getting a chance to ride a horse) is getting predictable. Looking forward to the next one! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ermabom | 8/12/2012

    " The mystery in this one is exceptionally good. Very interesting twist at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lila | 2/19/2012

    " I hadn't read any of the Cadfael mysteries in years. they are good, reliable reads. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 D.w. | 1/3/2012

    " The murder is off stage and everything that stems from that seems to circumstantial. Most of the story now delves into prior books in the series to enrich the novel. The mystery is virtually second place to it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J. | 11/6/2011

    " Not much of a mystery, but the rest is gorgeous. And Cadfael is always fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clarissa | 6/8/2011

    " Not my favorite Cadfael mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Murphious | 6/5/2011

    " This is a good story, just not a "I really Liked It" one. I would like to give it 3 1/2 stars for the political intrigue along with the main plot of a religious festival and mysterious travelers. It wasn't quite the mystery as are some of the other books in the "Cadfael" series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 5/31/2011

    " Still revisiting old friends. Have read before and will probably re-read again down the road. "

    " This is very good. Interesting how the author works together the pilgrimage and the crime, which is committed far from Shrewsbury.

    Never, ever watch the televised version of this story. Never. It's a travesty. "
