some language and disturbing/violent images
1st Giordano Bruno book
A very interesting historical thriller, apparently based on an actual person. (I've never heard of him, but hey. Or at least I can't remember having heard of him.)
The only downside/reservation/whatever I have about this book is absolutely not the fault of the book or author-- it's just that the religious insanity of the Elizabethan period drives me beyond all batty. How anyone could justify torture and murder etc with Christian faith boggles the mind.
But as I said, not the fault of the author certainly. She did an excellent job with the period.
Overall, recommended. I'm looking forward to reading the next 2 books. (I have an ARC of the 3rd book!!)
