    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

    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 theimportant 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 s Hood is

    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

    3 2020 joining in with Detectives group for my umpteenth reread Cadfael is a comforting delight, and as a member pointed out, with all the horrible virus news, we could all use a comfort read about now 2018 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 w

    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 readingat this point, I d be happy to hear from any fans that are willin

    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 whatcan 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 ki I have a feeling that th
