    Ho ripreso in mano la Robb che non leggevo da anni, mi ricordo che non la consideravo all altezza di Ellis Peters e la serie di Cadfael, ma comunque la ricordavo come una lettura piacevole.Sono cambiata io Che noia Il periodo storico e appena accennato, ci sono piu personaggi del solito ma solo di contorno, la storia traballache peccato

    I didn t think this was up to the high standard of the previous books in this series Well researched as always, with maps and an author s note at the end, but slower paced I agree with previous reviewers that it s also darker, but I think the series has been moving in that direction for a while now, and I like that And speaking of dark I wished th
