    While it is certainly and definitely true that Ellis Peters Monk s Hood does not and will likely also never rank as one of my favourites of the Brother Cadfael Mediaeval mystery novels, I still very much and actively do consider it one of the important earlier books of the series and as such to be read if not in actual order of appearance then still relatively early on, as indeed, there are in my opinion some very good reasons why Monk

    I really, really liked the book, but I LOVE Cadfael Cadfael gets ten stars These books may be classified as stand alones,but I believe you should read them in order, starting with the second book Why Because it is important to know who each one of the characters really is, their souls, what makes them tick, how they think and behave In book two I came to understand who Beringar was Book three has now taught me, showed me, who Cadfael is I have s

    I read this for the Murder Most Foul square of my 2017 Halloween Bingo card.Brother Cadfael has not disappointed me yet In this book, one of his herbal potions is used for evil instead of for good and the Brother feels he must right the wrong caused by his tincture A very young step son is blamed for the murder and since Cadfael is sure the boy is innocent, he pursues the matter all the way to Wales.Cadfael is such a steady, sensible character It s a jo

    In the third of the Brother Cadfael mysteries, one Gervase Bonel leaves his estate to the Abbey in exchange for him and his wife being looked after for life, in the process disinheriting his stepson Not long after moving in, Bonel is killed by poison in a special dish sent out for him by the Abbey and the poison is an oil for joint pain prepared by Brother Cadfael The most of obvious suspect is Bonel s stepson, fifteen year old Edwin Gurney who turns out to be

    This is a yeoman s work mystery with a middle ages veil draped over it Seriously, Ellis Peters Monk s Hood felt like a throwaway whodunnit set in the medieval period I know these are very popular, popular enough to have a tv series made from them, but I just don t see it The whole thing could ve been done in any setting at any time Being that this is the only book in the Cadfael series I ve read, with no plans on reading at this point, I d be happy to hear from

    Excellent As always, Brother Cadfael s wisdom shines through in this mystery He does not rush to conclusions or believe coincidences but muddles through what clues there are to find the truth And being a Brother, his opinion of the culprit isn t always as harsh as those of the law, compassion playing a large part in his decision.The author does a wonderful job of putting the reader into the 12th century and uses dialogue that might have reflected that time period as well These

    I have a feeling that this series will be like the The No 1 Ladies Detective Agency series for me Every book is solid, they give you the warm, cozy feeling, you enjoy the atmosphere and the immersion into another time and or place, and what can you say I almost feel this series would be stronger without the murder mystery aspect I really enjoy feeling like I m right there in the 12th century, working with Brother Cadfael and his herbs and potions He is a decent man, and the book is k

    It is wintertime in Shrewsbury and an unpleasant man is poisoned It takes Cadfael some sleuthing and a trip to Wales to find the culprit and exonerate an innocent suspect What I enjoyed most is the leadership change in the abbey and ci devant abbot Heribert s introduction of his successor The monks have a warming room in the winter where they can spend a little time every day we have central heating Makes me truly grateful.Looking forward to the next one.

    Another wonderful outing in the series which made me a lover of historical mysteries many years ago, when I first met Cadfael I had forgotten the plots, so rereading the series is like reading each book for the first time.This time, Cadfael is called to administer what aid he can to a dying man Gervase Bonel who has just signed his manor over to Shrewsbury Abbey and moved into retirement on abbey grounds with his household a house, daily meals from the abbey kitchens and stabling for a horse are prov

    Brother Cadfael to the rescue once again.It is nearly Christmas of the year 1138 and all manner of creatures are stirring Abbot Heribert has been summoned to London in no small part because the Abbey did not vigorously support victorious King Stephan during the recent siege of Shrewsbury , leaving the monastic community in the ambitious hands of Prior Robert Before he left Heribert refused to finalize the deed for the manor of Mallilie Gervase Bonel wishes to gift the Abbey with his manor in exchange for sup
